    I have a selection of those adapters and have read that claimed spec as well, none of them worked in my 1110HD which has 8 bit IDE. That laptop is known to be very picky about HDs so it could be the...

    I can measure mine, to be clear you are asking for the measurement from the motherboard to the memory card, and from the motherboard to the next card plugged into the memory card?

    It looks like a 30 year old mistake, I zoomed in on a pic I took when I had it on the test bench at my place and that last leg is smashed in, I never noticed it. It looks like a factory mistake...

    I ran that board through the battery of tests before sending it, and it was my grungy one ;) I have every confidence you are getting nominal HX behavior from it.

    Great idea on the KB, you don't...

    Yep, early 90's I was active duty Army and they didn't pay very well then, so it was a constant struggle to maximize the available computing hardware money. And liking platforms like the HX and...
  6. Anyone have a scan of this catalog? (PC Enterprises)

    I wrote for a copy of the PC Enterprises catalog back in the day and even ordered a HDD and VGA card, I lost track of the catalog many years ago and sold the HX with the cards in it in the mid 90's...

    Nope, 1110HD has an identical or almost identical screen, no backlight. I never seemed to mind though, I hauled mine all over the desert back in the gulf war and never had an issue using it indoors...

    I scored a zip drive (IDE) and am going to install it. I have no practical need for it with all the ways to get bulk data onto the CF but it is another neat gadget. When you did yours was it plug and...

    I found it curious that there were three DMA channel entries rather than just the one for floppy, I donít know quite what to make of that

    The build is mostly done for hardware and software. I am curating a list of games and apps for VGA, CGA, and TGA and sorting those into menus. So far it is a solid success and when I get back next...

    I found this; http://appletothecore.me/files/scsi2sd_mac_se_solid_state_drive.php

    The takeaway is this:
    I booted the machine up with the Utilities disk from the 4-disk System 6.0.8 installer and...

    Well crap. The Mac boots and runs fine from floppies and seems to ignore the internal HDD which just blinks and makes an occasional noise, this being a pretty typical experience with a 30+ year old...

    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...
  21. 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...

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

  24. 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...
