XT-CF-Mini Bootable 8-bit ISA CF Card Interface
Product Code: XTCFMINI
Product Description
Replace an old or dead hard drive in a vintage PC with a hassle-free, reliable CompactFlash card!
Plug-in and go! (well, as much as you can expect with these old machines :p )

Brand new!
Built and tested.
CF card not included unless selected.

Open Source!
New miniature design from here in New Zealand.

This bootable expansion card provides a Compact Flash card interface to 8-bit ISA systems such as PC/XT. Typically paired with a 64MB or 1GB CF card. Silent, and more reliable than an old mechanical hard drive.

By default the XT-IDE BIOS comes configured for:
  • XT(and higher)-compatible BIOS.
  • Use the XT-CF-Mini's IDE interface at 300h, no IRQ.
  • Boot first hard drive unless user presses A for floppy.
Any of the above can be changed on purchase, or in your own time with the simple DOS utility and built-in switches.
I recommend using the 186-compatible BIOS instead if you have an 80186 or NEC V20/V30, or higher, as the performance is better.

Switches and jumpers control:
  • I/O port for the 8-bit IDE (CF) interface
  • I/O port for the Option ROM
  • Option ROM Enable
  • Option ROM Write-protect

Note: Not all CF cards will work. Most work, but some don't adhere to the CF standard fully, and won't work. The full size Monotech XT-IDE card with an IDE>CF adapter, is compatible with more CF cards.

Note: The 32K EEPROM + Boot Menu option is not useful for the majority of users. It is only useful if you have multiple hard drives or floppy drives that you wish to boot from.
