HP 9000 735/125 with 208MB memory, free to a good home, SF Bay Area

I'm looking for a good home for an HP 9000 735/125. It does not have any disks in the sled, though I've booted Debian on it. I'm in San Jose, California, and this unit is nearly 40 lbs, so if you want it and aren't local, you're on the hook for shipping. This particular 735/125 has an HP sticker on ...

Acquired a PS/2 Model 60 with Reply Corp PowerBoard planar replacement

I recently acquired an interesting beast, a PS/2 model 60 with a Reply Corporation-manufactured, Socket 3 MCA Planar motherboard replacement, the PowerBoard 60. It came with no floppy drive, RAM, or CPU, but it came to life once the requisite components were installed. I found a replacement 6 volt '...

Re: SCSI2SD+microSD bundles in stock and ready to ship from USA

There's one of the v6 left: http://shop.codesrc.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=62 I ordered one, these should be much faster than the v5 and they support synchronous transfers. CodeSrc is out of stock now, actually, but I have a limited quantity in stock, ready to ship from the ...

Re: Problem with RMC on an XP900 immediately returning to COM port

Hello aperezbios!!! I would suggest the following steps: 1. Check the cabling (null modem) and port (COM1) Yep, did that, and I use this null modem cable regularly to connect to other things serially, without issue. 2. Try alternate COM port (COM2). There is a SRM variable that actually allows this...

Re: SCSI2SD+microSD bundles in stock and ready to ship from USA

Can these devices be used as root device and booted from on a Indigo and old Suns? Can't tell about Indigo, but I had no issue with one of those (a V5) to install & update Solaris 7 on a SPARCstation IPX. I only needed to re-design the 3D-printable carrier to fit the V5 in the IPX. It's not ver...

Problem with RMC on an XP900 immediately returning to COM port

I picked up an AlphaStation XP900 which I can't get to boot. It turns on, I get zero output on the serial console. I can get to RMC via the serial port, so it's not *totally* dead, but I'm completely unable to interact with the host via RMC due to the fact that it immediately exits back to the seria...

Re: Indy with SCSI2SD setup?

Setting the experimental disk caching to "on" in the SCSI2SD firmware breaks IRIX boot with many errors in the xfs driver code, so don't do that (yet). Also i tried "disable glitch detection" which disables firmware filters for improving SCSI signal-to-noise ratio to allow trans...

Re: Using a CF or SD card in an Indigo?

Well this thread certainly blew up since I last checked it and certainly contains a wealth of useful information. BTW - I'm on a little bit of a budget, but when money isn't a constraint I will totally look into the SCSI2SD for a long term solution. Well, you now have a lower-priced alternative, wi...

Breaking in to an inherited AIX installation

As mentioned in another thread, I picked up an IBM RS/6000 7043-140, a 266MHz based 604e, and it came with an install of AIX 4.2 on a hellaciously-loud 4GB SCSI-II drive. I'd like to know if there's any equivalent in AIX-land to what I would do under Linux to recover root access to a machine, eg int...

Picked up an IBM 7043-140...thoughts on the value of an IBM GXT800P ?

Hi folks, I just picked up an IBM 7043-140 (233MHz 604e), and it came with an install of AIX 4.2, along with an IBM GXT800P, which seems to work fine. Is anyone interested in acquiring this card? I'm not sure I want to keep it in the machine. The machine came with two 128MB 53H1671 60NS EDO DIMMs, a...

Re: Looking for supported memory for POWER6 8203-E4A

Hah, this is the exact model I have (a two-way 4.2GHz Power6). Note that you may not be able to get more than 16GB in it if you do not have a CUoD code. Mine has 8GB. This is the IBM spec . When I had the server disassembled to replace the system backplane, I took pictures of the RAM sticks, which ...
