XT-CF - Bootable 8-bit ISA CompactFlash - rear-accessible
Product Code: XT-CF
Product Description
PREORDER NOTE: This product currently has up to 1 month time to ship.

This bootable expansion card provides a Compact Flash card interface to 8-bit ISA systems such as PC/XT. Typically paired with a 64MB-2GB 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's IDE controller 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 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

The larger EEPROM is for when you need to select what floppy/HDD to boot from instead of just first floppy and first HDD.

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 later "1.1" card has a text error. The two switches marked "32K", should be ON for 8K ROMs (27(C)64, 28C64B), and OFF for 32K ROMs (28C256).

The Airmail postage is untracked. Usually 2 weeks, but has taken up to 2 months on rare occasions.
The Courier postage is 3-7 days tracked, but only available to certain destinations.
The Express postage is 2-3 days tracked, but costs a lot more. You must supply a phone number with the Expedited option.
