Compaq Systempro

This may be a long shot but I'm looking for a Compaq Systempro. This was their first entry into the server market and essentially changed the industry. I'd love to find one for a functional display of the evolution of PCs.

Re: What extremely rare (non-prototype) computers do you wish you could find?

I've been searching for years for a Luna 88k - up to 4 88000 processors. CMU did a lot of the Mach kernel development on these so I figured I'd be able to track one down (live in Pittsburgh). So far, I've only come across one of the cpu boards.

Re: Virtu on eBay (not mine)

I actually bought it. I have a fondness for Boxx and the having the last of a line is cool. Plus, the seller is local to me. Thanks for posting about this, I wouldn't have seen it otherwise.

Re: What pointless thing are you doing right now?

Pentium - not to suggest throwing more money at the problem but I just saw a complete (actually complete) PI electronics module listed on eBay.

No affiliation with the seller but thought you might be interested. I have one of these machines myself so I keep an eye out

Re: Parting Out 4D/340 VGXT

I'm through Cleveland a lot. I was actually there this Friday. I'd be glad to do the trade - I have two Indigos and I can bring both for you to pick. The configuration is a little different on both. I don't have hard drives but I have the sleds (company required that the drives be destroyed). Let me...

Re: Parting Out 4D/340 VGXT

Where are you located? If shipping would not be astronomical, I would be interested (I'm in Pennsylvania). I do have a couple of 4k indigos and I can check specs for you or we can do a cash deal.

If you decide to make the trade, can you post pictures of your machine? I'd love to see your handy work.

Just saying, I might have some interesting gear to trade as well...

I would be interested. I have a few fun single board computers and development boards you might be interested in. Would you like to work something out?

Looking for a couple SUN VME and Intel Multibus boards

Hi everyone, I had a little extra time on my hands and was looking to start a couple projects. I have a nice floor standing Sun VME chassis (3/260, I believe) but I have no boards. I was hoping to build up a Sparc based VME machine. Anyone have any Sun 4 series VME CPU boards? Actually, I would be i...

Tezro PROM Password

I finally managed to score a Tezro on eBay. It's a quad processor of some sort but I have yet to run HINV. The trouble is when I go to the start-up screen, everything is password protected. Does anyone know how to clear the password? I can get into the L1 through serial console but that's about it. ...
