Speaking of inscrutable error codes from IBM BIOS, in the big
equipment purge of 2006 at work I obtained a number of IBM PC model
350 and 365s. In my various disassembling and re-assembling of pieces
amongst these systems to make a smaller number of maximally configured
systems I occasionally get an inscrutable error code form the BIOS.
Does anyone know if there are manuals for these models online? I
tried searching IBM's web site, but immediately got lost in the
large amount of irrelevant results.
