Usage Notes

The model number is listed as PC10C/PC20C. There is limited information available about the Commodore PC line of PC/XT compatible machines. The system BIOS operates, checks memory, and attempts to boot. It is unable to access the hard drive (40 MB Western Digital) which is in place but inoperable. It recognizes 5.25" disks and attempts to boot from them. The 3.5" floppy drive is not in the boot disk check sequence.
