The first system with support for Fuel was 6.5.17.

Yes, indeed, but, the exercise in booting an early version was to see if it read the disk correctly. It does on the 6.5.7 Disk (original SGI) but failed to load as expected. The disk image though, failed on 6.5.30, so suspect a bad CD Drive. Now proven, by the fact I am copying the copy using my other FUEL to an install directory.

Yep, you need 6.5.17 at the very least...

Indeed, but the test was, that it could read an original SGI CD as opposed to a copy.
