    You won't physically damage an RLL drive by hooking it to an MFM controller or vice versa.

    By that time, most software required either dual 360k floppy drives, or a hard drive. Managing a Kaypro 2000 with only a single 720k drive was enough of a headache.

    Just to clarify some confusion here, the issue is not Chrome or IE not working. (Problematic user-interface-of-the-week usability issues aside) You start Chrome and everything looks and works fine....

    I'd try formatting the MFM drive on the RLL controller and pattern testing with spinrite. See if it can actually reliably hold an RLL format. Some can, some can't. It won't hurt it, if that fails...

    What model of hard drive is in it? Isn't that just IDE?

    It sounds like the hard drive died. I'd take the hard drive out and test in another machine.

    I'm surprised that syncs at all. The sync timings are not the same as composite video. I vaguely recall doing something similar a long time ago using a mono CRT TV but I think I may have had to...

    Windows 1 drivers often get rolled in to one single ".bin" file to speed up load time. So the individual file may not appear in the the windows directory. Check the documentation to see if that is...

    Hmm. Some earlier 286 BIOSes did not have built in CMOS setup programs, but rather required one to run a setup program from floppy disk.

    If you really don't care about the data, sure you can just re-format. On a hard card I would go through the regular low-level, FDISK, and FORMAT routine.
