IRIX fails to boot

Unread postby MiltonA » Fri Dec 23, 2016 1:07 pm

Hi guys,

So I went to restart my Octane today (recently acquired) and the system fails to boot:

Boot file not found on device: xio(0)pci(15)scsi(0)disk(1)rdisk(0)partition(8)/sash

I followed another thread on this site and proceeded to printenv. The output is attached.

I then resetenv and tried to reboot, but I'm getting the same error.

Any ideas?

thanks

That is one sick Octane! Or, perhaps more to the point, one sick scsi disk. Presumably it booted before from that disk?

Yes it did boot. And yes it is a nice system!

After some more snooping around (putting disk in another Octane and performing FX), the disk seems to be corrupt in some way. I'm having IRIX and the apps reinstalled from the kind gentleman that sold it to me :)

Gotta love a responsible seller! Precious few of those in the real world (of which this place is not)... ;)
