Nope, only softsector formats that used standard address marks. That
leaves out apple, some CBM, Most heath H89 and all northstar systems

The board is slow, make sure the ISA bus transactions are set up to not
exceed 8mhz and also there should be IO waits. Bet best is to find and
use an old 386 or 486.
