I don't have an GSI fw file, no. Is it possible to extract it from the drives?

Use the 6201 or 6401. I would never touch any older model.

PS. I have a 6201B (removed from a Fuel, so with SGI firmware) for 45 UKP + shipping.

It's possible that one of the tools here: http://backfire.rpc1.org/tsstcorp/index ... utilities/ is able to produce a backup of the firmware in the drive before flashing, but I don't currently have any working DOS/Windows PCs with SCSI controllers. The Domain of the contact email address specified on that page seems to have fallen into the hands of some domain dealers, so it's of no use.
