I have an original set of Epson QX-10 boot disks (plus
original owners manual) - although I was intending to

I also do not have a QX-10 or any suitable equipment
to make copies of the disks available through archives
such as

If there is anybody with the time, and inclination to
preserve and make the disks and available to
enthusiasts online ... please contact me.

Best regards,
