I have a NeXT Colorstation. I am trying to load the 3.3 release of
NeXTstep and the Y2K patch via CD-ROM.
I have tried three SCSI CD-ROM machines now, and I receive the same
error during the boot process:
so (4,0): ERROR op:0x0 sd state:10 scsi status 0x2 (The number in
parenthesis at the beginning changes with each setting (except 0 and 7,
which produce parity errors), but the rest of the message is the same. I
tried all settings on all three CD-ROM readers with the same results.
