This thing posts and boots to DOS, but I still do not have a functional keyboard for it.

    Did you get it working? I have one of these including the monitor – unfortunately I don’t have a monitor cable – does anyone know if it’s specific or if any old cable will do?

    Many thanks.

      I was able to get a bit further with mine, I used an IBM 5151 MDA monochrome monitor which was compatible and it POSTs and boots to DOS, however I do not have a keyboard that works with this, it is not standard IBM compatible XT or AT keyboard, I also tried a Wyse terminal keyboard which used the same plug and it was also not compatible, so I am stuck waiting on finding the proper keyboard before I can get any further with this one.
      I would assume the monitor cable is a straight through 9pin, same as any MDA monitor.
