More of the Xebec controller board in a bit. This is the hard drive which came along with it, a good one by all accounts as there are no bad sectors on the defect list. Notice the rather intriguing luggage label.
|This appears to suggest that the hard disc contains the OS9 operating system for the 68000 series second processor for the BBC micro.|
I have tried this hard disc connected up to both the Xebec board which came with it and one of my Adaptec ACB4000 boards but I haven't yet been able to read anything off it.
It looks like I am going to need the second processor which uses the operating system on the disc, so I am saving it until I can connect it up to the right bits if I ever get hold of them.
