Do you have a disc with RTE on it ?
Or do you have 'nothing' ?
I've a HP 1000 600A+ with RTE-A VC+ on it .
The manuals you can download from the Hpmuseum website
You need minimal one HP-IB disc to get it running.
To install RTE-A you need a tape unit like a 9144A or 9145A or a floppy
drive like a HP9121/22.
It is possible to create binary images from the tapes or disc's using a
DOS-PC with HP-IB card installed and a program called LIFDIAG.EXE
Some time ago I wrote a paper how to crack the passwords of a RTE-A
At the moment I'm busy with the house, but within a few weeks I should be
able to dig up my RTE-A tapes.
The boot string for a HP-IB drive is : %BDC27BSYSXX XX=is the number of the
You could try just : %BDC27 but then it uses the first available boot file.

Onderwerp: Re: HP-CHM agreement
Are there any RTE-A binaries available for hobby use? I just
acquired an apparently functional HP-1000 / A900 but have no
software to try running on it.
I can connect to the 12040 MUX interface as the VCP console,
but none of the 12040 manuals I have found contain
programming information on the 12040 so even trying to get
HP-IPL/OS running would be a challenge. The manuals have
programming information for the 12005 serial interface, but I
don't have one of those in this system.

I'm attaching a pdf. If the attachement gets eaten, i'll put it on

Looks like the message was eaten.
The pdf is on bitsavers for you to take a look at.
CHM hasn't issued a press release about it since we're still doing
things like trying to convert the interleaf formatted
manuals to pdfs
and are organizing what we have.
What HP actually donated was materal from about the last 10
the product's life (RTE-A, mostly). The
