You have one already, don’t Be greedy!
Still having problems with the one you have?

Yes. some problems : cannot boot, no display.

Did you try removing some of the SIMM?
Do you have another computer to test those in?

Also, there’s a cr2032 battery in, is it still good?
What revision is the motherboard, and what graphics card is installed?

hello,

i will change battery and simms next week. and tests.

GPU : 9 axe 64 pro
motherboard : Passy 830 0000 08

maybe have you photos for :

  • jumper configuration hard drive and cd drive
  • ribbon connexion

with it, i will check all drives and ribbon

I wondered the other day if the BeBox uses POST codes at all, probably not. Else a POST ISA card would have helped maybe.

Probably more like a unix box… you could monitor one of the serial ports for output from the firmware and kernel. It would be hard to imagine such a machine not having any debug output…

Yes you get serial debug on one of the ports, just the speed is unusual IIRC (19200?).

19200… is a normal speed??? The only thing I’d suspect before that is 9600, and that becomes less common as it’s pretty slow.

Anyway https://www.haiku-os.org/legacy-docs/benewsletter/Issue4-30.html

According to that on the BeBox it is the 4th serial port, at 19200, no parity and 1 stop bit and no flow control. So… fairly standard.
