I thought I would start a thread to show/document my restoration on this post
It arrived today in rather huge shipping boxes:
But those boxes had to be so big to protect...
The original shipping boxes!
In my excitement I have already got it out and tested it. No explosions and the only bother being a dead socketed dallas style RTC which a quick google search revealed is compatible with Dallas 12887a so I was able to throw in a spare.
Once the kids are asleep I plan to give it a good clean, sort out a hard drive and work out how to mount a CDROM drive without having the rails that should normally be used.
My plans are to put it through its paces, verify everything is where I want it to be and add an AWE32 and CDROM drive. It came with the original Dell windows 3.11 disks which I may install for fun although I feel this machine might stay pure DOS.
