Installing IRIX

Unread postby r00t » Thu Feb 22, 2018 12:11 pm

Hi all:

Today I have received my first SGI, an Octane2. I was waiting this moment for a long, long time. I cannot describe the feeling when I hear those fans roaring for the first time.

I still don't have a 13w3 to VGA adapter, so I cannot do any other test than check if it is turning on. (as far as I know).

It has no OS, so I need to install IRIX. Which options do I have?

My suggestion is to do a network install. Network install (and other types of install) are mentioned on

Hope it helps.
