I am very impressed with the work you are doing! I am writing because I dont know how else to ask about this. I have been working on reviving a BeBox dual 66. It has an IDE drive and a SCSI CD ROM. I can install to the IDE drive with no trouble, but the BeBox never sees the IDE drive as a boot device. I suspect I could find a SCSI drive and it would work, but then I have to mess around with termination and all that.
Is there an EZ button that I am not seeing? I have a hazy memory that there were firmware updates distributed via floppy. Maybe I need a firmware update to allow IDE boot? Or, can a boot floppy be used?
I hope I am not trolling too bad, but I am not sure who might know something about this. I’d love to get this machine working just out of respect for the BeOS platform.
