    The only reason to use hardware EMS on a 386+ would be programs that don't like running in an EMM386 (or similar) DOS VDM and that require EMS. Lots of games hated EMM386, but only a few used EMS....

    Ok, so the desire is basically adding more storage while keeping all existing hardware in the system. So, not much more than adding an ISA interface card.

    Just a few thoughts:

    Right, the on screen menu for this monitor shows "31.6khz 70hz PN". It does not show the X*Y values in this mode.

    The formatter in the BIOS does not verify what is written at all. In fact, the MFM/RLL data cable can be completely disconnected and it will still look like it succeeded.

    I would suggest double...

    No, the SL used the Intel 8086 CPU rather than the 8088 or a 286, an odd choice for the time really, so it would need a V30.

    An interesting comparison, I suppose, but one really needs to keep the...

    Those Fujitsu M2551A drives are generally nice reliable drives. I'd agree it would be best to repair them if possible.

    If it were me, I would connect it to an IBM PC clone (it is a standard 360k...

    IDE to USB adapters will not work with such an early IDE drive. Whatever it is they require was not present in most drives less than somewhere around 1 gigabyte sized.

    I'd suggest hooking it to...

    According to one source, the Conner CP2064 should be 823 Cylinders, 4 Heads, 38 Sectors per track. See if you can set a type that matches that (probably "user" type), although it could be using...

    As I recall, he was not going to be stocking the kits any more. Thought he said empty boards might still be available, but could be wrong about that.

    48TPI/40 track disks written in an 96tpi/80 track 1.2mb drive will not be reliably readable in 360k 48tpi/40 track drives. This has to do with the narrower track width.
