Right now I'm using my PWS600 with an NCR 53C810 SCSI controller which is 50pin, but I want to use 68pin HDDs (wide). And I need a new controller that can be booted from the SRM of the PWS600 and to be recognized by OpenVMS.
I created a list of the supported by OpenVMS controllers, but only two of them I think will be bootable by my old PWS:
KZPAC/KZPSC (Mylex DAC960) and QLA1040 (is this KZPBA?). And the controller must not be a DEC part - I need some generic (my NCR 53C810 is an ASUS PCI-200 card). Is there any other old wide SCSI (SCSI/RAID) controller? Will some generic (from some x86 server) Mylex DAC960 work with the SRM and OpenVMS?
What SCSI controllers do you use in your Personal Workstations - share some experience please
P.S. the exact hardware is PWS 600a (Miata MX5) with SRM 7.2-1
P.P.S. I found a quotation about generic (not DEC/Compaq branded) Mylex 960 working on Miata just with BIOS reflashed with the DEC analog. Can anyone confirm this?
