IBM PC RT 6150
I’ve been on the lookout for an IBM PC RT and was able to acquire this 6150 model. Unfortunately, it was only the tower that I could find so I am trying to figure out how I am going to boot it for the first time and see what’s on it. Through the awesome support of Deskthority, a keyboard enthusiasts community, I was able to get an IBM 6247440 keyboard but it is missing the removable cable. I’m trying to track that down as well as an RT mouse.
Looks like this unit supports the IBM 5081 color display but I fear that will be very difficult to find. My first step will try to hook up a terminal via serial connection and see what I can find out about it.
Below are pictures of the cards that were in the computer. The I/O slots are marked 1 through 8 (top most slot is slot 1 and has the ESDI drive card) and the RT PC slots are marked A through D (start after slot 8 with the CPU in slot A):
Slot 1: Enhanced ESDI card
Slot 2: Token Ring card
Slot 3: Serial/Parallel card
Slot 4/5: Dual slot Megapel Adapter cards
Slot 6: (Empty)
Slot 7: Streaming tape drive controller card
Slot 8: 5080 Peripheral Adapter card
Slot A: IBM PC RT Processor (CPU) card
Slot B: Coprocessor ccard
Slot C: 8 MB ECC Memory card
Slot D: Empty
The hard drive in this unit is an H310 model 310MB Maxtor ESDI Drive:
