Can not remember what kind of monitor was.

Sun Ultra 2 Creator without graphic card

Hi,

I got a Sun Ultra 2 Creator without graphic card.

I borrowed the S bus Graphic card from Sun Station 5, plunged into ultra 2 after removing the bracket. But no video output.

Do I have to find UPA style card or I have to live with console?

Thanks for all advise

Re: Possible clone Sparc Station 5 hdd?

The internal sled almost broke in pieces and yes, it does has a CD-ROM.
I have Sun 711. The trouble is I only have a cable with 50 c and 68 hd on each end. It would not work on SS5 as it requires 50 hd.

Possible clone Sparc Station 5 hdd?

Hi,

The hdd on Sparc Station 5 is very loud and I am thinking about clone the hdd with a modern and quieter hdd if feasible.

The machine boot and work normally without any issue. Have root access as well.

Please advise.

Thanks
