    FreHD on Model II/12/16/16B/6000 - FIRST ATTEMPT

    Well, here we are 5 years later! I hadn't been keeping up on FreHD development but now I see, sure enough, there is a version available for the Model II/12/16/16B/6000, the FreHD F48. I am finally ready to pull the trigger and buy one, but then I realize that I haven't checked my Model II to...

    16K and DOS?

    I'm hoping someone might have some experience with this combo. Many Model I machines came with either 4k or 16k or RAM when used without an expansion interface. Of course in that case is would be assumed that any programs loaded or saved would be on a cassette. Some of my other 8-bit machines...

    Model I hard drive adaptor board schematic

    I have seen Model I hard drive adapter boards available on the 'net, the ones that adapt the MI's 40 pin bus to the 50 pin hard drive bus. While I think it's great that these are being made available to the community, they look to be rather simple and I would prefer to save the money and make...

    FreHD on a Model II?

    I hope someone here might have some insight on this. From what I understand, the hard drive system (with the exception of some of the early ones) is the same one use for the Model II/12 and the Model III/4. If that's the case, I see no reason why a FreHD wouldn't work on a Model II, 12, 16, or...

    Wilson Laboratories FX-500 floppy disk exerciser

    8 bit ISA hardcard

    I have a hardcard for sale. Basically it's just a plain 8 bit MFM controller, attached to a metal frame, with a 3.5" half height drive attached. Requires a standard 4 wire power connection for the drive. I got it without the drive, but had one that I added. I did NOT get it tested, just...

    Vintage IBM mouse for AT? PS2 ISA card?

    I have found a few older IBM mice over the years that looked like they would match the style of the 5170 nicely (probably earily PS/2 mice) but I have never seen a serial mouse from IBM. Did such a thing ever exist? Has anyone managed to get a PS/2 mouse connected to the IBM? I've used the...

    IBM 5160 and 5170 origional harddrives?

    I know IBM used many different manufactures for it's 5.25" floppy drives, and I suspect the same is true over the live of the XT and AT. I'm wondering if anybody has a list of the various drives offered or at least an idea of the common ones used. I know I have a couple ST-412s w/ IBM logos...
