    The original King's Bounty. The PCjr has a jrIDE with 1mb DOM, a V20, and the Tandy mod. I put a V20 in the Data-1000. That didn't help.

    So far, just a game that doesn't load right. Not a big deal since it works on other systems, but it shows that there is an issue.

    This computer has a Phoenix/ERSO BIOS in it. How would I find the latest BIOS for it? I think mine is 2.36.

    I know, but it somehow feels better to use the period correct hardware. For anything beyond a 486, I plan on using DOSbox.

    That didn't seem to work. So I devided 255 by 15 and got 17. So I multiplied 31 by 17 and got 527. So I put in 527 cylinders, 15 heads, 63...

    OK, I remembered that I have a USB hard drive enclosure that it should fit in. I can then use a modern PC to look at the hard drive settings.
