    thanks for highlighting this, I did not know that Xenix could run as a task on CTOS, there is a reference here: https://www.cbronline.com/news/unsys_unveils_btos_ii/

    So, I've got an XT with a compatible controller and a 20Mb hard drive and I gave it a go. I was able to boot it up and start the installation but my hard disk has too many bad tracks in the first couple megabytes. In XENIX, I can just move the partition forwards a bit, but PC/IX only recognizes the first 305 cylinders. Definitely only meant to work with 10Mb hard drives.

    I've got another hard drive on the way - hopefully it will be relatively error-free.

    So.. are these images still somewhere? The link seems to be dead.
