Okay, I try to start my IBM ps/2 486, and all it does is give me two errors,
00016500
I9990022

I looked up on google, and it said something about needing a disk, but everywhere you go to download it doesn't work

Okay Got all that stuff done, it is almost there but now i have a new error
2010600U and google says it doesn't exist

THIS SITE (http://www.walshcomptech.com/selectpccbbs/) has many of the PS/2 reference disks and diags.

THIS SITE (http://www.walshcomptech.com/selectpccbbs/) has many of the PS/2 reference disks and diags.you are awsome, but i must know, how far backwards compatable are 2.88 mb disk drives, will they read the 1.44 and older ones?

From Mueller in 'Upgrading & Repairing PCs' - see http://lib.daemon.am/Books/Upgrading_PC/ch13/ch13.htm

"Because a 2.88M drive can fully read and write 1.44M and 720K disks ..."

Mueller is a good source, but there could be an exception out there. In the case of your PS/2 though, the statement is sure to be true.
Note the, "DOS version 5.0 or higher is required ..."

In my list, error 00030600 is "on a 90 or 95 means Unsupported keyboard attached".

The image displayed simply translates to, "PC not OK. Go read the manuals".

Earlier, the error was "0210600R 588J"
I think this time you may have transposed the '2' and the '0'

Looks like a SCSI related error. See http://www.mcamafia.de/mcapage0/ps2error.htm

Have you run the Advanced Diagnostics disk (for the 77) from the web site that Acorn earlier posted?

I'm unfamiliar with the model 77. Hopefully someone with experience with the model 77 (or similar) will put their hand up.

At this time, it looks like there's still somthing you've yet to configure, i.e. inform the system as to which hard drive you have.
From what I've read, the 77's SCSI controller is built into the motherboard, and so I would expect any SCSI configuration to be done via the reference disk.

But then there's this on the Internet:
"If your model 76/77/90XP/95XP system's SCSI configuration utility does not have ..."
So is there separate SCSI configuration, or is that text referring to the model 77i or 77s ?

Omg by sheer luck and chance, I found a harddrive that started up and actually works, It is so awsome to have windows 3.1, however, I don't have any mouse drivers for it xD
