    I just PM'd you and forgot to comment on this as well. I DO have a few spare 1000HX motherboards, one I think is bad and a few are good. I would be happy to send you one as a test platform for this...

    The system was delivered today and the case is super clean, as is the motherboard, no hint of corrosion or aging. The screen is super sharp and it is a great candidate. The bad news is that the HDD...
  4. Any good way to create a bootable DOS CF HDD on a LINUX box?

    Long story short;

    I have an XT class PC with an XT-IDE and a 512mb CF card. No good way at present to use real floppies or a gotek for a few reasons.

    What I would like to do is format that CF...

    You have my attention :p There were ALLOT of "turbo" 8088/8086 motherboards out there toward the end of the XT lifespan and you could always look and see how they managed the various clocks, the bulk...

    That looks great inside and out!

    Another great upgrade to consider is one of these WiFi modems: https://www.cbmstuff.com/proddetail.php?prod=WiModem232OLED

  7. Bought an SE, what's good for upgrades?

    I bought an SE with 1mb RAM and a 20mb HDD. I am not a Mac person and never owned any back in the day but I have always wanted to pick one of these up.

    What is the current best option for modern...

    The HX steals conventional mem for video as well. One of my "to do" items in the software setup /optimizing the config steps is to see if this is mitigated by using the VGA card when running CGA...

    This is a GREAT time to drag out your HX, or at least grab the new adapters while they are available. The PLUS to ISA adapters are the smallest possible size and allow cards to fit neatly that could...

    The project is coming along well! CGA and VGA programs tested display edge to edge, no artifacts, and wonderfully clear. I did a test load of a few CGA games and some VGA RIP BBS graphics and it all...

    At the very minimum a very easy adaptation for a memory expansion. But whatever signals are missing they could almost certainly be picked off easily from the motherboard. That said, a gotek would be...

    I was looking at mine and I recall that I saw an article years ago on the Toshiba badged version, I found the article and I think it is possible it is a memory expansion to go to 1MB. The article...

    I was digging through some Tandy stuff and I found a 1100FD I forgot I had and it works fine. I suppose I can help in testing any 1100 to 1110 ideas that come along.

    I remember that being printed in Computer Shopper or some such equivalent back in the time I was trying to upgrade my HX. I owned a few of those cards but never saw the box, and I agree it should be...

    So, the...
