    A picture and the chipset information may help the rest of us identify the board.

    Is one memory slot separated from the rest? It may be a COAST socket for cache instead of a RAM socket.

    MS is even eliminating the documentation for Windows 10 or, at the least, breaking the links that Windows 10 help is trying access. I hate online help. MS is just making it worthless.

    Supposedly, there will be a POWER10 released next year. Given the usual 3 year run of a new POWER design, I expect that to be the last major POWER design with a couple of minor tweaks before the...

    No. They did check for any a few years ago but none was found. The problems have been a lack of staff and a lack of direction.

    A close scan of the actual print results would show it clearly but condensed was like the double striking for bold but fewer dots were used. Each character might have 6 dots with gaps for standard,...

    I thought the Epson condensed was similar to actual typographic condensed where the gaps between each dot row was reduced. The standard MX-80 printout has very wide separation between dots from what...

    The floppy and CD drives would filter out the dust instead. It is amazing how much dust can be drawn in the small openings on the drive.

    Find the supported list of software and run those in a virtual machine. The development pattern is rather scattershot. Someone would be adding the few necessary functions from Windows 7 to run their...

    Install disk sets were often formatted that way so the use case would be to install over the network or copy all the files to the local hard disk. I don't think XDF was used for anything other than...

    The suggestion was to double check the drive jumper settings. If incorrect, the drive may not respond to any commands thus no drive sounds.

    The drive may actually be working correctly. Early IDE drives don't respond to commands in a way many newer IDE adapters expect. Though double check the jumpers. Seagate ST-157A is one of the models...

    But the question was regarding having the drive protection left in during operation not during transport. I doubt that turning on the computer without removing the protection will damage the drives.

    Most EGA monitors will not display the signal from a CGA card. Perfectly normal.

    Shouldn't result in much damage to the drive heads. If the protection disk is clean and undamaged, the heads will just float over it and then return to their stop position. Tells nothing about the...

    The so called quad density drives provided 720kB formats. Very common with Sanyo systems.

    Well, for the trivia buffs, http://www.s100computers.com/My%20System%20Pages/80286%20Board/80286%20CPU%20Board.htm shows an S100 286 card that runs at about 5 MHz.

    I doubt it. All the full 16 bit systems were designed to emulate the 5170 so many slowed to either 6 MHz or 8 MHz.

    Okay, I think there were S100 systems that ran a 286 quite slowly but those...
