IDE card in PM8500
My SCSI hard drive is dying in my PM8500, can I put an IDE card in the machine and boot up off a drive on the IDE bus?
I would not have any drives on my SCSI bus.

Yes I think you can, A Sonnet Tempo, VST UltraTek, or Acard...Other World Computing has the 3 Cards. Go to there Web Site and you can get the Info. you want (I Believe) Hope this helps. R. W.

I tried an Acard when they first came out last year. It worked for a while then died. Before it died tho, the drive was bootable. I sent the card back and waited to put the drive in my G4 which I got a few months later. Hopefully they have the bugs smoothed out by now.
Good luck Scott
