More precisely, this is not a SASI drive. This is a MFM drive, attached
to a SASI-to-MFM controller, attached to some kind of DMA-to-SASI
interface. The drive itself is a plain old MFM disk.

Therefore I ordered a MFM ISA controller, and I will try the procedures
you mentioned above when it arrives.
