    I'm looking for the following SyQuest cartridges, if anyone has any to spare:

    Cool, I definitely appreciate it.

    I've run into an interesting situation where anytime I try to replace the internal 4GB HDD with either an mSATA->IDE adapter, or an IDE->SD adapter, the machine...

    That’s a really beautiful result. What compound are you using for the filler?

    I’m looking for one of these boards, too. I just picked up a really nice XT 286 case, PSU, dual 1.2MB floppies, and hard drive, but with a replacement motherboard installed.

    So, if anyone sees...

    So, I've picked up a cheap keyboard, on eBay, and it seems to be slightly better, but still not 100%, even though it seems like it was never used, given the lack of any kink in the flat flex cable....

    I'm also looking for NEC drivers...could you link me to where the archive resides, on archive.org? I can't seem to find it. Nor can I find the mirror on mR_Slug's site.

    Sigh.

    I ordered an A version.

    As far as the keyboard goes, it’d be _very_ easy to make up a PCB that uses whatever modern mechanical key switches float your boat.

    Many thanks!

    I could also use a dock, if you have one.

    Have you ever managed to get the machine to boot from PCMCIA?

    Thanks!

    I haven't tried it, yet. But I do have a fluxengine that I need to build.

    I'd suggest looking at TVs. During that time period, white TVs weren't unknown.

    I could use both, but the floppy drive itself is a commodity part, so I can source one, myself, if necessary.

    Many thanks!

    That’d be darned handy. Do you have a spare floppy drive, by any chance? I could definitely use that.

    Also, have you managed to get yours to boot from any PCMCIA devices? I haven’t, so far.

  18. DEC HiNote Ultra 2000 - Can't Enter Setup

    All,

    Somehow, in the process of trying to get my DEC HiNote Ultra 2000 to boot from either it's existing CD-ROM, or to replace it with a different drive, I have made my machine refuse to go into...

    Might well be. The drives are easily available, though.

    What's not available is the adapter cable, to attach them to the module connector, which is, of course, proprietary.

    I'm also interested in the details on the floppy. My Ultra 2000 came with a CD-ROM (XM-1502B), but I haven't gotten it to boot from any burned CDs, yet. I'm assuming that it's the early CD not liking...

    Did any progress get made on this? I've always loved the 5140, since first playing with one, not long after they were released.

    I also have a fully functional 5140, that I've been playing with.

    Fantastic, glitch! I'd definitely like a laser-cut mounting plat for mine, as well. I really love that SBC.
