I just purchased a BeBox 133MHz system and would like to see if there are still any BeBox owners here. I am also interested in Haiku on Intel for later but would be nice to get to know fellow BeBox owners also.
I am now working on getting a network card for mine and also update OS. It is at R3 now. I have the R5.03 CD but scares me about the bootrom updates. Do I have to update my bootrom to update from R3 to R5?
I think if you can run R3 that you can upgrade without ROM upgrade. Systems that ran older BeOS than PR1 (or R3) would not work from the info I have seen posted. PR1 (or R3?) was the cross over requiring ROM update.
Just an up to tell that you are not alone: I am more or less in the same situation. Interested in Haiku, I kept a BeOS featured x86 box for several years until the mid 2000’s, and I managed at last to get a dual 133 BeBox last year…
macsociety, I have a dual133MHz Rev6 BeBox, and I sold his unit to seki (a like new Rev8 iirc) last year
I saw your youtube video and I’d like to know what are all your discs and books next to your monitor, in case I’m missing any (like that BeSpecific CD, I only have the 5th or 6th edition, I can’t remember now).
I’m a BeOS collector as well, I’ll send you a link with pictures of my collection by mail later, if you wish…
