You obviously didn't get an original 6 MHz IBM PC-AT with the
pre-installed 20MB CMI drive.  I don't know if all CMI's 20MB drives
were that bad or if IBM just said "We'll take that pile of bad 20MB
drives off your hands."   Damn drives sounded like an Apple II booting
up when they were working properly.... which was never for long.
