I've got a decent little PC164LX board and assorted hardware running the Windows 2000 beta. It's a fun novelty, but I'm really not using it for much, and I've got a guy I'm looking at trading with who's wanting an Alpha setup in order to get into OpenVMS, so I'm wondering: is it possible to get this running VMS?
For starters, the BIOS. I stumbled across a disk image for re-flashing the firmware of this board on HP's old Compaq/DEC FTP mirror, and I also found an updated firmware for the Tru64/VMS version of the same board - if I replace the new firmware file on the disk with the other one, will it successfully re-flash it, or just brick the board?
And after that, is there a hardware-compatibility list for Alpha VMS? I'm not sure if anything besides the SCSI controller will work, since beyond that it's all random x86 PCI/ISA cards...
