Running CP/M-86 on an IBM PC
Fancy CP/M, but don't want to buy new hardware? If you own an IBM PC or XT, that's no problem. CP/M-86 is specially designed for Intel 8086 and 8088 processors.
On these two pages you will find everything you need to run CP/M-86 on an IBM PC or XT. There is also a patch to run CP/M-86 on an IBM AT compatible computer! Let's go.
I run CP/M-86 on my IBM PC with 256 KB RAM and an XT CF LITE CompactFlash card. The system works flawlessly! Past meets future.
Note! The CF card has 30.5 MByte, but with CP/M-86 only partitions with maximum only 8 MByte can be addressed. I split and formatted the CF card with HDMAINT.CMD accordingly!
