I recently acquired a positively ancient IBM ps/note 425 and i was hoping i could get it running at the very least windows 95 or 2000. Of course, i do not expect to do this with the current hardware or software current in the unit itself, however i would appreciate some help getting started and some of the logistics required to complete such a task.
Here are some Tech Specs
IBM ps/note 425
BIOS Revision: 06/07/93 (AF4US1A)[Not sure if thats important]
Video Controller / Memory: CT-65530 / 512 KB
Hard Disk: 127 MB
Diskette Drive A: 1.44 MB 3.5"
Thats really all the info i have on her, besides the fact she has a B&W screen and windows 3.1.
Now ive already compiled a list of things i may need to do to this unit to get it running windows 95 to 2000 but i would really appreciate some input as to if this is even feasible.
1. Needs a new CMOS Battery (Easy)
2. Ram Upgrade
3. Drive Upgrade
4. New Color LCD
5. Additional USB Ports?
6. Sound Card
This is the list i have so far, however i do not even know if i have the ability to do such things to this laptop or not. I need types of compatible ram, the drives themselves need to be compatible(im hoping my 20 gb sata drive i have lying around will work) LCD compatibility with the video card etc etc... if anyone could give me a hand at getting started i would really appreciate it. Especially so, since i cant even seem to find an owners manual or technical specifications online, thanks.
