Thread: PC/IX Images

  1. #11

    Default

    So on a positive note I am proud to be able to say that I've had time to image my second copy of PC/IX in both EMT4WIN and Dave Dunfield IMD imagedisk formats

    Here is the link

    http://maben.homeip.net/static/S100/IBM/PCIX/index.html

    Luckily this activity was performed before my meeting with another disasterous set of Wabash Diskettes . All diskettes were not created equal.

    Thanks, I grabbed the goofy ImageDisk #17 that was bad from the first set.

    I regret I haven't installed it yet, but I have a Panasonic Sr. Partner with a 10mb drive not doing anything, so I might do that this week...

    very, very interesting! nice upload. i am going to download these now, and play with it on one of my XT's tonight. i'm assuming there's a very very small selection of software i'll actually be able to run with this... anything like an IRC client? SMTP server? web server?

    i will bust out the ol' 12 inch amber phosphor and put the monochrome card back in for this just for kicks. TTL ftw.

    Actually, it would be good to test with VGA, because if it works in VGA then that proves it needs an 8088/8086 in order to run (probably uses PUSH CS and POP CS, which are invalid on later cpus).

    As for an SMTP server, web server, and IRC client, I think the answer is a resounding NO because PC/IX was created before those existed! (Well, IRC and web anyway).

    Minix might have functional web/smtp/irc clients and servers though.

    what we really need for XTs is a full pentium 4 emulator. THEN we could run Vista on it, and use a hard drive as virtual memory since the XT's RAM is limited.

    Yeah, but just think mow many 360KB floppies you'd need to install it. Unless you plan on getting a DVD drive to run in an XT, too

    Then again, you could always do a network install, if Vista supports it...

    Did you try the baking-in-the-oven trick on those floppies?

    I don;t think it's just Wabash - I have had to throw out all kinds of disks, because you could almost SEE the oxide coming off the media! Maxell, memorex, elephant, Sony, the list goes on and on...

    Regards marcus.
    I was involved with PC/IX since its inception and I have a complete set of PC/IX manuals, 'Second Edition', in pristine condition:

    o System Manager's Guide
    o Programmer's Guide
    o Text Processing Guide
    o User's Manual (aka 'The Fat Book')

    Interested?

    Chris.

    Sorry to dig up an old thread but I'd love to try this on my 5150 and my 10 MHz clone. It seems the links are down however, perhaps someone could point me to an updated link?
