Help on Sun-3 PROM Monitor

Post by Calvin F » Mon, 06 Jan 1997 04:00:00



Does anyone have a text file of commands that you can send me for the PROM
based Monitor that is used in the Sun-3 processors?  I have a Sun 3/E that
I am tinkering with.  Thanks.  Email direct at calvinf15.com. Thanks,
Adam.

 
 
 

1. "ID PROM invalid" on Sun 3/80 - help

I managed to get my Sun 3/80 to turn on, but I get an error, and can't
get it to boot. here's what I get on the screen:

Sun workstation model Sun-3/80 series
ROM rev 2.9.2  8MB memory installed
ID PROM invalid

Testing 0 Megabytes of Memory... completed

Auto-boot in progress
ERROR: Missing or invalid ID PROM
(repeats)
le: no carrier
Requesting Internet Address for 0:0:0:0:0:0

then it just repeats the ID prom and no carrier messages over and over...

can anyone tell me what to do to make this system boot up?
thanks
