Wow, didn't know they made an R4600 Indigo2.

I only read about them so far... but this one is real and sitting right next to me. The CPU module (I'll upload pics these days) looks like a R4400 module with the large heatsink removed and a small one glued to the CPU itself.

Found it on Ebay last week and I just had to get it - although it was the most lowend of 3 Indigo2 being sold by the same seller. I'll probably try to add the FHVJR video board. Probably can't make much use of it (as I dont have the BOB), but at least there is a useable IndyCam port.

It's done, it is now equiped with the board... all I need is the BOB and the cable, I guess. ;-)

Yeah, I could use an extra also, have three Indigo2's with the ev1 boards and only two BOBes :(

Hey Gerhard, any chance of you dumping the PROM for me? I can show you how via a serial cable. :)

Chances are quite good... I'll fetch it from storage to see what PROM revision it claims to have.

I've tried some of the I2/Indy I have around here during the "PROM dumping" thread including my R8K but nothing turned up that hadn't already been posted. Maybe the R4600 has something new though...

Alrighty. Just do a "version" in the command monitor and compare it against the list of versions that I have that I posted in the "PROM Archive" thread in the SGI Hardware forum, so you can save yourself the trouble of dumping it if it's already there.

I've got it up and running beside me now and I think you already have the PROM:

Code: Select all

PROM Monitor SGI Version 5.3 Rev C IP22 Oct 20, 1994 (BE)


Does the "(BE)" mean anything?

"Big-Endian". And yup, I already have the PROM.

Oops... it's that easy? Hmmm... is there any reason they specifically mention Big Endian? ACE/ARC?

Rumour has it that there was a modified version of the Indigo2 that ran Windows NT, and that the modification was mostly a different PROM.
NT on MIPS hardware was little endian, and so any PROM used to boot into NT must have been LE as well.

There is also a rumour that NT ran on a modified Indigo(1), and late Indigo PROM revisions have the BE tag as well. Coincidence? Let the conspiracy theories begin ...
Now this is a deep dark secret, so everybody keep it quiet :)
It turns out that when reset, the WD33C93 defaults to a SCSI ID of 0, and it was simpler to leave it that way... -- Dave Olson, in comp.sys.sgi

Currently in commercial service: Image :Onyx2:(2x) :O3x02L:
In the museum: almost every MIPS/IRIX system.
Wanted: GM1 board for Professional Series GT graphics (030-0076-003, 030-0076-004)
