I remember that the MyIDE-II does not work with the 800, but could the MyIDE+Flash work (assuming that you had a compatible OS in rom/eprom)? The reason I'm asking is that there are two 800 personality boards that can have different OS flashed/programmed in them.

Edit: I see that you looked at this some time ago. I'll download that file. Anything else to add about the 800 with MyIDE+Flash?

The IDE-part will surely work, so will SIDE to load files from FAT-area.
The -F OS will not, since you need 64k ram.

MyIDE-2 does work on a 800, when you do the phi-2 modification to the cartridge port.
But same issues, you still need 64k for the RAM-OS to run.
At the other hand, the MyIDE-ONLY should work.
(Haven't tried this yet)

Grtz,
Sijmen

-edit-
Wait, I did test MyIDE-2 on the 800 with MyIDE-only.

With the personality card that I have, the RAS signal has been replaced with PHI2, so the menu and loader of the MyIDE+Flash and MyIDE-II both work in a limited fashion. The CF cards were already prepared, and based on limited testing, XEX games and apps that will run on an 800 load and run fine. If you are booting a language or other app that requires dos, then dos will load from D1: as it normally does. In my case, I have the "OS800Clu" OS rom, and D1: is a MyIDE drive with MyDos 4.5X. So for example loading BASIC XL from the cartridge loads BASIC XL and dos in a flash! This is a dream setup (not using an Incognito). An Incognito is more powerful, but this setup is great as a classic 800 computer.
