Got myself IBM PS/2 model 30-8086 type 8530-002 S/N 55-2129388
Was looking to get PS/2 PC into my retro collection for quite long time as IBM PS/2 was my first real PC.
Good thing – this particular one use ISA slots.
Bad thig, it uses scsi drives. But I am making (allready made) ISA XT-CF card for it, so it will use CF card instead of hard drive.
ISA Adlib sound card is also going to be made for this.
Not so good thing – it uses 720k flopies, but it is easy to make 720k (DD) floppies from 1.44MB (HD) floppies.
Making 720k (DD) floppies from 1.44MB (HD) floppies:
- Cover hole on the left side with some tape,
- format a: /f:720
- Write the image using WinImage or write required files.
Operating system: IBM PC DOS Versions 3.30 or later.
