when i start the machine on serial console i got:
and here it hangs
I tried with removing the battery, but the E297 error still appears.
the manual from IBM said - "Start firmware softload path execution." , and nothing more.
When it hangs on that error, the floppy drive start spinning and probably waiting for some kind of firmware to be inserted on diskette.
I performed some checks, remove all parts, cards etc and all devices seems to be OK.
Before some time I open a new topic in http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm? ... 64&page=17
I contacted IBM Bulgaria, and they told on phone that they will probably be able to fix it, but have to go with the machine in their office in Sofia, and that they take 100$ per hour( which is too much for me
If someone could help I will appreciate that.
