    Except that the 5161 isn't any different from an XT chassis, except that it doesn't have a speaker and is outfitted with a backplane. But who knows how many were produced; several of mine (including...

    That's nuts. I'll confess, I have an extra cable myself, but I wouldn't cut the ends off, much less sell it for $600. Though I only have 1 extender card (and I'm currently using it). Those seem to...

    I might check it again, but the Storage Dimensions controller is working beautifully now (and I opted to keep the controller in my 5161 with the original 5.25" FH Micropolis I was using).

    I'm probably going to use a Toshiba drive, like a 3301 or 3401. I haven't got that far, because I'm trying to figure out what's wrong with my SCSI hard drive.

    I managed to figure out some model...

    8 bit SCSI card driver repository

    Just wondering if there are any repositories for 8 bit SCSI cards.

    I was having some issues with several Micropolis and Seagate drives in my 5161, and figured maybe it was a drive problem....

    My apologies, but the picture helped greatly. So it's just that - a jumper wire.

    It's crossed my mind, though from what I understand, there's 512KB on the bottom board, of which 128KB replaces the 128KB option card on an AT (personally, a stupid design, to bring it up to 640KB)....

    5 slots are never enough. What I'd like to see is reproductions of the 5161 receiver and transmitter cards made. I've talked to others in our local club about possibly getting a production run, but...

    I'm just still amazed that the 5150 serial started at 0100xxx, given that one of mine is 0100485, which I guess makes it one of the first 500 ever made (it doesn't work, so I'm having other members...

    Maybe not hundreds, but certainly a lot for sure. I've seen several examples of differences even on the Model A 5150, so who knows with what consistency these revisions are and date to when (my...

    That's super cool. Nice analogy on OS/2, btw. I was actually hoping to install different flavors of 1.x on SCSI hard drives, to show as a demo machine at our next GTG (DFW Retro Computer club).

    Without reading the whole thread, I dealt with SCSI on my 5170 all night. Ended up using the stock MFM controller (for the floppy portion) and an Adaptec AHA-1542CF (with floppy disabled). Talk about...

    Here's a better question - is there anything I can actually do nowadays with this card, aside from showing it off at our club's next GTG? I'd obviously prefer to show it off doing something, though...

    Does the same go for LCDs? The only CRTs I have are some mono (TTL) and 1 CGA. I haven't had a VGA CRT in years. I do have a bunch of higher end NEC Multisync LCDs that support sync on green. I guess...

    I recall seeing in an IBM sales brochure for the Option 370 that it was capable of using the hard drive for virtual memory, but I don't remember how much was able to be allocated.

    Professional Graphics Card questions

    Just wondering if it's possible to have a PGA card co-exist with VGA in the same system. I currently have an 8 bit Paradise VGA card in my 5160. I was looking to populate the PGA card into my 5161...
