I could of tried a few other HD's I had, but I can't imagine much better results from any of them over the CF, only worse most likely or the same more or less..
Waiting for a 1/2 GIG CF Card to come in, if that works, I will connect two of them to the card and that should be enough for my XT.
The XT is fully loaded, every slot taken up except for the 8th slot.
AST 6 Pak
Microsoft Mouse Card
IBM CGA Card
286 Orchid Card
Enhanced 1.44/360 Floppy Card
Acculogic IDE Card
Sound Blaster Card REV 1
The MotherBoard has a 8087
The Orchid 286 has a 80287 8mhz
All cards are 8-bit.
Nice thing bout this CF Card, small
light, no moving parts, low power usage
faster, and more capacity, stick it to the
side of anything with velcro can't beat that.
The XT originally came with a 20meg mfm
that died, it was replaced with a 1.44 meg
floppy black to match the 360k IBM
Floppy for asthetics.
What more could a IBM XT ask for...
I've got nothing to add except to say that this is such a cool setup, when I build an XT I want to do something just like this!
