Onboard FDD/HDD controller didn't happen untill the tail end of the 486 era, so NO

The board has 8 and 16 Bit ISA slots, VLB was in the 486 era, so NO

The CPU is soldered onto the motherboard, Worked last time I tested it, so YES.

I also have a trident ISA video card, mpst likely a ISA HD/floppy controller too.

The unit takes 4 30-pin memory modules.

You would need a case, floppy, hd, keyboard, and serial mouse

I've seen 386 compatible mainboards with one or both of these features, that's why I asked.

There were some exotic 486 boards that has 386 chips built into them so people could expand to a 486 when prices were reasonable. Those boards ended up using 486 chips before they were discarded and would be sold as 486 motherboards.

Kazer0: You've got a colour classic II? Wow, they are mega-super-rare! You can get the same thing as a CCII by sticking a lc550 board in a CC1 - but having the real thing is even better Happy
