IBM PC Diagnostics 1.02 (Cassette)

These are the diagnostic disks (and cassette) provided by IBM with their PC computers. They are used to verify the basic functionality of the hardware. These are only intended for use with genuine IBM computers.

The IBM PC Diagnostics are possibly the only IBM PC software distributed on cassette. It is intended for use with a "bare bones" IBM PC 5150, that could exclude floppy drives.

Installation instructions

Start IBM ROM Basic, instruct it to load from the cassette port, and play back the contents of the included MP3 file via a TRS-80/5150 audio cassette interface cable.
