Progress on getting the MVII up and running:
I ordered the SCSI2SD adapter and it has come in, the plan is to use it
as the system disk on the MVII.
The hobbyist VMS PAKS have arrived and I was able to download the VMS
7.3 iso, not sure what I can do with it since I think it must be burned
to a 512 byte sector CD.
I asked if the PAKS were good for older versions of VMS, like 5.5, and
was told yes they were. We'll see about that.
The Hobbyist VMS CD I had for VMS 7.2 was found and I was able to get
the old Toshiba CD drive to work on the MV 4000 using a CQD 223A. How
can I create an image of these CD's on the VAX 4000 that I could use in
I wasn't able to get the UC07 to see the CDROM because of a bad SCSI
cable, I had hoped to format the SCSI2SD using the UC07.
Is it possible to use the SCSI2SD on a microPDP-11 under RT-11? I ask
because of the disk size limit under RT-11.
