I am trying to salvage a friend's novel from a Seagate ST-212. I have the IBM 5150 that the drive was in, and have moved in a graphics card from another PC. I can boot the 5150, but get garbage from the keyboard after the boot. I can't get into the BIOS setup. I have an IBM clone that has a ST-251 drive. I've tried the ST-212 in the clone, with and without the MDA FD 10MB adapter, but get errors on initializing the controller. I can boot both PCs from floppy disks, but can't get to the hard drive. Help! I just want her files!
Thanks in advance for any advice.
