I take it back, there are not the typical two card intel disk controller. I don't see what is the controller. I was the ribbon cable but realize now that was the ICE interface.
I suspect the card near the bottom of the picture is the controller. It likely still had ISIS software to run the ICE boards but it likely wasn't a compatible disk controller. They'd need to write a BIOS for it as I doubt there is any after market disk controllers that match the original Intel boards.

The drives don't look like a standard box but are likely fine as it has the two card controller on the card cage.
The drives are still likely SA800s.

I assume this are not the standard Intel floppy drives?
