So I see the HXC 2000 has been installed to kaypro systems (models 2 or 4), But has anyone done it with a gotek floppy emulator? I know people have gotten the gotek working on the osborne 1. If you flashed a gotek with the HXC firmware would it be possible?

Would appreciate any insight into this.

Yes, A friend of mine just tried it out.
Wasn't HxC but FlashFloppy, but basically the same.

Worked

You might want to take a look at this from "Joe's Computer Museum" on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CL2C4geiF7Q

This describes his work with a Kaypro 1, but probably works for any of the early Kaypros. I think he uses a Lotharek SD card emulator with the HxC2001 firmware. The gotek/USB should work with the HxC2001 flashed - but the HxC software from what I can see is read-only for the USB version.
