I'm try to rehabilitate a 1200. Powers on, gives me PO>>> OK, but when tried to boot I got a BIOS checksum error.
Looking at updating the BIOS/SRM but it's a pre V5.3 system, so I need to update to 5.3 first, since there was a reorganisation of where the images were stored with that version.
I can find files to update to V 6.0 but the only file I can find for 5.3 is as1200_v5_3.exe or as1200_v5_3.sys, both too big to fit onto a floppy, and I cannot find any instructions on how to use them anyway. The system does not detect the CD drive -- well, AlphaBIOS detects the CD but SRM does not.
Any advice would be welcome. It would be nice to unbrick the old thing.
