Thread: Looking for Xenix for an IBM XT

    Default Looking for Xenix for an IBM XT

    Anyone know where I can find a Xenix system to install on my IBM XT? We ran Xenix on about 100 XT computers back in the mid 80s. I was one of the techs that had to maintain these systems. Now that I am building up an old XT I kind of want what we had back then.

    sorry had to clear my throat
    You will have a hard time finding an original copy, although it would be awesome if someone here did have a spare.
    While coughing I did find the 8086 version in ZIP format though.

    A better archive seems to be here: http://oscollect.old-dos.ru/OS/Xenix/

    I believe SCO Xenix 86 2.1.3 (5.25).rar is the one you want. There are separate 2.1.3 version for both 8086/88 and 80286.
