I've run into sitauations like this. It SEEMS like some OS will only run
on certain machines and will give errors like this if they're run on other
(lesser?) CPUs. I wasn't seriously interested in the bigger HP 9000/300s so
I never pursued the matter further.
... i've not used one of the 9000/300 bigger
machines, but a "common" HP 9836C.
I thought, that it might be an issue with the harddisk size of the 9133L.
I tried several partition sizes, but everytime, the same failure occurs, so replacing the
40 MB drive with a smaller one might not be successful too.
I found an older Basic version 5.x. With this one, i was able to create a HFS volume,
that can be somehow accessed by my Pascal version: i can see the directories, but
accessing files will lead to an integer overflow again :(
What Pascal version is required to gain HFS compatibility with Basic 6.4 ?
What's the latest version of HP Pascal, that's available (i saw somewhere a
to 3.25), is there a chance to get a copy ?
