Picked up this bad boy on Ebay recently, in mint condition: Had been looking for a decent XT motherboard as the base upon which to restore my first PC to it's original specification and condition. All that remains of the machine is the case/PSU, two 360K floppies and the keyboard. No idea what happened to the original mobo and cards, it was gutted and upgraded by me various times back in the day. It was originally an 8088 XT with 640K RAM, CGA graphics, and the two floppies, no hard drive! As nostalgic as this machine is I'll still be taking some license in the restoration, aiming more toward what I wished it had at the time, specifically a hard drive, EGA graphics, maybe even a 1.2MB FDD. Anyway I tackled the case a few months ago, plastic front panel was cleaned with an application of retro bright along with the metal case being resprayed to the original color. The drives haven't been touched but this is what it looks like now: The mobo came without RAM, but as luck would have it I had a working 286 mobo lying around with exactly the chips required.So out they came and into the JUKO they go! Next challenge was getting video output, I have an EGA card but no EGA monitor, but I do have a Tandy CM2 which will display CGA. Pretty sure the EGA Card will output CGA with the right dip switch settings but couldn't find the settings for this anywhere. The card is below if anyone knows what the switch settings are: Anyway I've got a 5150 with CGA so I whipped that card out, plugged in the CM2 and onto the test bench we go: And yes we are posting with a whopping 1024K of RAM!! Not sure what the keyboard error is about but that's for another day. Into the case the motherboard goes. Perfect fit and runs just fine with the old 150W PSU! Anyway a good start to the project, next on the to do list in no particular order: Try and get the EGA card outputting CGA and/or buy an EGA monitor. Install the ISA Winbond Game/Printer Controller Card I got from Sean0118 recently and see if that works. Clean up the floppy drives (they work but are filthy). Recap the PSU. Source an 8 bit ISA floppy controller. Source an 8 bit ISA hard drive controller (The New XT-IDE rev 4 looks interesting, anyone got any experience with these?) https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/NEW-XT-...477012?hash=item3f8642fe14:g:aJwAAOSwcndZrxFl If you happen to have any of the parts I'm after and you're willing to sell let me know!
