OT: CP/M-68K for HP 9000 Series 200 computers
Message #1 Posted by Juergen Keller on 21 Sept 2010, 3:00 a.m.

I'm looking for a copy of CP/M-68K for HP 9000 Series 200 computers. Anybody out there who can help me?

Thank you, Juergen

Out of curiosity... didn't they run some early version of HP-UX ?

As far as I know not all 9000 Series 200 computers were able to run HP-UX. At least that's my conclusion from what I found on the Internet. But if anyone can shed some light on this I would highly appreciate it.

The latest issue of the HPCC Datafile includes a very nice article from Tony Duell about the HP9000 Series 200 machines. IIRC those units with a MMU were able to run UX.

OT, is it possible to get a dump from a boot rom of an HP9000 series 200 (3.0 or 3.0L) ?

(I already got a dump from a series 425, but it's too recent for my taste)

I'm interested for some project ...
