I successfully installed a 3 1/2" ST-506/412 drive (a Seagate, IIRC), which
worked OK. Has to be 3 1/2" because it fits in the floppy bay. You have to
find a controller card which has the power output because the floppies take
power off the drive cable.

I think you could bodge it to take a hardcard in one of the expansion


The Model 25 takes the cake for the world's most stupidly designed PC --
and the hardest to work on.
