The 88100 si worked. Hurricane never got a functional 88110 before the IBM/Apple
deal. Tessaract never booted MacOS.

Which bare board did you see?

I was in the RISC products group doing driver and cpu board bringup starting with
the 88100 nubus boards to IBM RSC (never had a functional 88110) then 601 over to
high end desktop product development with TNT.
