Thread: IBM PC Portable and ISA hard drive?

  1. #1

    Default IBM PC Portable and ISA hard drive?

    Its even possible to fit any ISA hard drive to IBM 5155 with other original IBM cards? I don't think so..
    I was confident about possibility of fitting Hardcard20 ISA hard drive, into IBM 5155, but its not true.
    I tried to place this disk there but there is no chance with IBM CGA, even without graphics card it can't fit.

    Why can't you replace one of the floppy drives and use a short MFM or RLL controller card?

    Interesting, I just picked up a 5155 (dead), I'm hoping to use an XTIDE in mine if i can.

    I want preserve original configuration, also both floppy drives.

    The XT-IDE does indeed work in the 5155, I've got an XT-IDE in mine. I've got a CF adapter in the works that will mount to any existing XT-IDE that uses the Keystone bracket and allow rear access to the CF card. This, combined with a Slot 8 Support mod board, would probably be optimal for the 5155.

    I know but... not for me I dont want any new hardware in my vintage IBM computers, thats all I have one your XT-IDE with CF card for testing mobos and for other work with historical computers and its works fine, but its only for testing.

    Some hardcard would be ideal but shame, doesnt fit at all...

    That certainly is not going to preserve the original configuration. It's both arbitrary and hypocritical.

    ok so not "original" but historical. What is hypocritical on fact that i want preserve original historical configuration? All my IBM's have all hardware historical and if possible original.

    Hardcard is historical hard drive. XT/IDE with CF card is not historical. Quite simple.
