Hi. I recently acquired a Hyperion "portable" PC - Mac-influenced, 8086,
dual 5.25 floppies, built in 4" amber monitor. I can't seem to get it to
boot, however. When I power it up, I get a flashing cursor, and the
system tries both drives. Then I get a "DISK FAULT" error on screen.
I've tried various versions of DOS, from 2.1 to 3.3, with the same

Does the Hyperion require an earlier version of DOS, or a customized
version? Or, do I just have a machine with defunct floppy drives?

Any help much appreciated.
