Um, yeah. It did. I bought the machine for $500 from Mannesmann Tally in
Kent, WA. A friend and I removed the 8250 from their machine room and
transported it to my home. I had two 30A services installed in the
upstairs of my house and that's where I set the machine up.
They'd wiped the drives before I got them, but they did give me the Ultrix
install media. I got it home on a Friday night and had it running Ultrix
by Sunday afternoon.
Some months later I traded it to a friend that an 8350 in his garage.
