Third-party SCSI on AlphaPC 164 series?

» close window

The Question is:

I'm trying to install an Intraserver 4280 SCSI controller in a PC164 500mHz
 alpha with little success. The controller is recognized as are the devices
 (both narrow and wide) but I get an error "%PKA0, OFFLINE.  ROM checksum read
 error". I attempted to thi
rd party boot using -fl 0,80000 and proper floppy and get errors "Unable to
 locate SYS$CPU_ROUTINES_1A05.exe" and "Unable to locate FIRM_REV_MATRIX.DAT"
 when attempting to load the third party drivers. Is there a patch I can
 install to make this controlle
r bootable? Note: PKW is V2.0.21 from Intraserver.  Thanks

The Answer is :

  OpenVMS Alpha is not supported on the AlphaPC 164SX, AlphaPC 164SX,
  or other members of the AlphaPC series.  OpenVMS Alpha is supported
  on the EB164, which is a PCI reference board.
  Please contact Intraserver for assistance in configuring the
  Intraserver SCSI controller, as the OpenVMS Wizard is entirely
  unfamiliar with this hardware, with its software and hardware
  requirements, and with what it might emulate.
