The specs shown here for the Executive are incorrect. This system was equipped with a 6MHz Z80B CPU not the 4MHz Z80A as stated.

I recently purchased an Osborne Executive and desperately need copies of the distribution disks, particularly the boot disk. I would be happy to supply the necessary blank disks and pay reasonable expenses.

I saw an Osborne Executive (or was it the Osborne 1) in a Youtube video titled ''Computer Virus TV News Report'' and the video was all about the Morris Internet worm that spread throughout the Internet, shutting down thousands of computers. Search Youtube for ''computer virus tv news'' and you''ll see what I mean.

Our university lab had a few of these. Each one was connected to a standard monitor.

I found a place where they sell the same model monitor or very similar to the Osborne 1s' and the Osborne Executives'. You could use it to replace the monitor on your's. To find the web sight you can look up monochrome monitor on It is on one of those web sites.

The executive (I have) does not boot of the Osborne 1 disks. Is that normal ?
