> Boot/Load tapes for the 927 and GX are not the same, despite both system running "MPE". The GX is a 16-bit stack architecture machine running MPE-V. The 927 is a 32-bit RISC architecture (AKA HPPA-RISC) machine with a completely different implementation (for the most part) of MPE. There is a 16-bit emulation mode on the 927, but you won't be able to use OS tapes from one system on the other.
