It came in the mail today. I can already tell that this is going to be great.
There's some yellowing on the front and some scratches on the case, but nothing beyond what you would expect with a system of this age.
It came with two hard drives. A 120MB drive with Dos 6.20 and Windows 3.1 and a ~420MB drive formatted in HPFS, which I'm assuming is for OS/2. The boot manager says that it can't boot the HPFS drive, which is a shame, but I'll probably put it in one of my hard drive enclosures to see if I can read the drive on my modern system.
There are a few errors on boot up when it's going through what files to load, which I guess means the pervious owner removed certain software from it without modifying CONFIG.SYS and/or AUTOEXEC.BAT to tell the computer not to look for them anymore. There's also some info 0n startup about an HP "measurement coprocessor" that then lists some base addresses and IRQs. The Windows install also has a copy of Excel 5.0 on it.
I'd like to my best to preserve this install of DOS and Windows. However, I also need to be able to install a sound card a CD-ROM drive. Should I image the drive and/or is there a way to create back up discs of the current install?
