Hi there. I'm planning to buy such an adapter for my IBM PS/2 Model 30-286 (and one for the other 'Model 30');
I'd like to ask does that card need additional power molex cable for connecting an IDE hdd? If so, how could that be proceeded with a PSU without any molex output here on the system? I don't really want to mod that 30-year-old PSU for that purpose, that's why I'm looking for such solutions.
It's been said: "There are pads for an optional power output connector. Useful for powering an IDE HDD in machines such as the PS/2 Model 30, which doesn't have a spare power connector from the power supply." but I really didn't get what they mean there.
And the same question for using CF card, where does it get its power?
