    Default My collection and CAVE

    It's been 10 years in the making...

    Most of my vintage computer collection and cave.

    I'm also a software junkie as you might see.

    The 1st picture on the left is my vertical 5170. It's so clean I keep it in it's personal pink condom so it stays virus free. To the right top is my 5162 which has a 50MB MFM drive and runs DOS 6.22 and Win 3.1. Below is a tweener setup in a 5160 case w/Tyan Tomcat S1562D duel Pentium 233's and runs XP. On the right top is a stock 5160 w/20 MB MFM drive. Below Right is my 1st edition Model "A" 5150, it's stock w/ SSDD drives and I have the original BIOS.


    The 386DX tweener, I archive software images and save then to modern drives over the network, 1.44, 1.2. 720 & 360 drives install plus cd-rom.


    Some of my software


    A lot of IBM doc's and software. The computer is networked to the 386 and all images are backed up in it.


    My 115lb photo printer.


    From the left 5160 networked to FTP files, 1.44 & 360 Floppies, XT-IDE w/8GB drive and CD-ROM drive. Below a 5150 Model "A" parts need BIOS has DDDS drives. Center top 5150 w/sysgen IDE to 512MB CF card, copy II PC Option Board. Below a out of the factory fresh 5160 setup with software for someone and never used. I've touch nothing in it.

    Very impressive, in all respects, not just the content but the organization and neatness as well.

    1st I really need to thanks many of the members of this forum for their help fixing issues and educating me on vintage computers.

    2nd I'm slightly organized but never neat.

    3rd I love the projects that get started here. I hope they never stop.

    It works, CPM, dos etc. I have everything to add a HDD but have unable to get it to work. Does it need a specific MFM HDD, IE 5MB, model?
