Omnibook 530
Just picked up an Omnibook 530 with a bad hard drive controller. Is there a repository that exists of drivers? or an image of the stock hard drive that I can clone on a CF/PCMCIA card?

I may have what you need. I have some files that were downloaded many years ago for the OB-530. You're welcome to have them. I don't make any claims that any of it works, but might get you going in the right direction.

Looks like I have a couple of zip files of the entire harddrive - one says OB-530 with Win95 and one is Win3.1. If I remember right, you could format a compact flash with DOS 6.1 on another system (I used a OB-430) and then just unzip the files to the CF card. And it would run (most of the time). Occasionally I wouldn't be able to get the prepared card to boot. To ensure booting on the 530, you should put a bare Dos 6.1 on a card first and then put it in the 530. If it boots up then unzipping the files to it should also work.

Send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you a link to the files.
