Greetings,
I have two machines, a
Model 43P,260 that has lots of memory
and a Model 43P,140 - where I want to add some memory. Are the memory
modules for the two compatible with both of them ?

Thanks and Regards,
Aalhad Saraf

I don't think so.  About 3 years ago, we had some 240 128Mb DIMMs
delivered for some 140s I have.  Some of it worked, but some didn't at
all, and the problems were intermittent on others.  The stuff had/has
the same IBM feature code, but the part number was wrong.  It took 6
months to persuade the vendor they had made a mistake (they said the
IBM configurator is infallible), and when they re-supplied, it was the
wrong stuff again.  Make sure you get the right memory.  Kingston has
the IBM part numbers on its site.
128Mb for 140 Kingston part no. KTM43P140/128 = IBM part no. 93H6823.
$119, but check warranty/maintenance issues if this is important to
you.

look on

260 looks like it must have DIMMs installed in pairs, so if you remove
any, take it out in pairs.
140 can have single DIMMs installed, but I think max 128Mb per DIMM.

Let us know how you progress.

Look in Appendix C of the following document:

http://www-1.ibm.com/servers/eserver/pseries/library/hardware_docs/sa...

A 260 can use the following SIMMS:  07L7729 and 93H4702

Some of these simms can be found on H50, H70, H80, 170, 270, M80, etc.
Unfortunately, the 140 isn't compatible.

1. 43P 140 SuSE 7.3, Was: IBM RS/6000 43P 140 SuSe v7.3 PCI Graphic Card


Wow!  Can you tell me how you did that?  I've been trying to install for days and usually wind up with a "mon>" prompt.

I tried the 7.1 technique listed on the SuSE site, and that didn't work.  Neither did the latest kernel at http://www.solinno.co.uk/7043-140.

The 43P 140 has the latest firmware and an ASCII console.

Any pointers here are highly appreciated.
