Seeking MicroVAX 3100 console EEPROMs?

» close window

The Question is:

Can one still obtain version 6.4 or later boot rom for a 3100 10e, If so how
and at what cost.
Thank you

The Answer is :

  Please contact the local Compaq Assisted Services folks, or your
  hardware support organization -- these following EEPROM part numbers
  are typically only orderable via Compaq Field Services and via the
  Compaq Assisted Services program.  (For details on the Compaq Assisted
  Services program, please see the pointer in the OpenVMS FAQ.)
  EEPROMs for Multi-user MicroVAX 3100 series systems:
    23-211E8-00 "Multi-User ROM" (High Word)
    23-210E8-00 "Multi-User ROM" (Low  Word)
    23-214E8-00 "SCSI ROM"
  EEPROMs for Single-user MicroVAX 3100 series systems:
    23-213E8-00 "Server ROM" (High Word)
    23-212E8-00 "Server ROM" (Low  Word)
    23-214E8-00 "SCSI ROM"
  The OpenVMS Wizard last determined which EEPROM chips were involved
  on the motherboard based on visual identification of the EEPROMs on
  the board (many also have labels), and by counting the chip positions
  available on the motherboard.   (Each position where a chip could be
  located is generally assigned an "E" number.)
  Alternatively, E25 is near the LANCE Ethernet chip, while E24 is adjacent
  to E25 and to the Ethernet address ROM.  Looking at the connectors of the
  motherboard, E24 and E25 are located along the left edge of the motherboard
  in line with the Thick and ThinWire Ethernet connectors, with E24 located
  further away from the edge of the motherboard with the connectors.
