  1. That's solid advice. I'll give it a shot and report back once I finish my moving at the end of the month. (Machine is packed up)
  2. That actually very much crossed my mind. Its a 386SX so possible it is only a 720K drive. I will need to search online for 720K 6.2.2. drive images and give it a try. I have some 1.44 drives so if I need to, I can swap the drives.
  3. My understanding with 6.2.2, you have a 2GB max partition and drive can only be 8GB. So if I put in a 80GB drive, does that still mean I can't format it into several drives of 8GB? I saw a utility by Western Digital that can get around the max size. Seemed like an option. Well, I tried to boot my band new 3.5" MS-DOS disks and it didn't work. So not sure if the floppy drive is no good or the Microsoft media is no good. I bought the disks sealed. When I finish moving, I will try to swap in some other floppy drives and disks to see what the route problem is. cheers
  4. I got MS-DOS 6.2.2 today so will try the installation. I'll check out the SB16 card. What do you recommend for a program launcher? I want to turn this machine on and have it autoexec a menu. And allow me to select all the programs I have installed so I don't have to type the programs names. Thanks
  5. Lol. I was watching a nice benchmark video on YouTube and the Cyrix looked much nicer. Is it a compatibility issue? Carlos
  6. Ok, DOS 6.22 is fine. I have a 100gb hd. Do U need to partition it to a smaller size? Or maybe better to use my ide2sdcard adapter.
  7. Btw... Is it better to use a Cyrix FasMath? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cyrix-CX-83S87-16-KP-20-FPU-Ceramic-LCC-FasMath-Math-Processor-387SX-CX83S87-/392842294496?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286
  8. Yes, there is a riser with two cards, one being a video card. The battery is a Dallas one and is dead. I'll need to drill into it's side and solder a cr2032 to it as those Dallas batteries/RTC are expensive to replace. This is a huge huge help. Next I need to figure out what version of DOS to install. Or if I go with Windows 95. Hmm. Thanks
  9. Oh my! That's it! How did you find it? I'd like to learn more about it. This is a 386sx? What is the empty ic? For a math processor? What kind of RAM does it take? I'll attach the bios settings. Any place to download a newer bios if they exist? For RAM I saw two sticks in it. Didn't look at their label yet. Would be great to find the manual online. Thanks again.
  10. I can't seem to find any documents related to a Zenith Data Systems ZMV-3926-GM. I'd like to learn about the motherboard. It got a ZMM149-P monochrome model with it. Thanks Carlos
  11. Its a really nice machine. I'll need to bug you on upgrading it down the road. I also got an Ultra 60 but it's missing frame buffer , cpu and Ram, and HD.
  12. I'm looking for a top case of a Sun Microsystems Sparcstation 20. My machine came with the wrong top case (Ultra 1 case) which I am selling. Let me know if you can donate that top case or sell one to me. Thanks!
