Have you spoken to the people at Macrotech? It is possible that the
hard disk controller you have is incompatible because of timing
problems, but I cannot say for sure. I don't recall hearing of the
MI-286 operating with the Morrow controller, but it does indeed
operate with the Konan and CompuPro controllers. The technical
suppoert people at Macrotech are _very_ cooperative and will go out of
their way to try to assist you.
The MI-286 board buys much more than 8-bit Z80 operation - the speed
improvement over the 8085/88 board is impressive. Don't give up just
yet!
