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.
... this is independent of the number of volumes that
are used (i have to
admit, i only have tried
1 .. 3 volumes).
I have a Basic 6.4 at hand as well, with this one, it's possible to
the drive, but then,
the volume isn't accessible by Pascal anymore :(
Another issue : is it possible to boot from the floppy within the 9133 ?
I can only
boot from another
9122 that is connected, but not with the 9133 build in
drive, later it's
possible to use it normally
Check the format of a disk formatted in each drive. I believe that
you'll find that they're different. I've run into situations like this when
tring to use 9122C drives on the HP IPC. HP drives are just plain weird,
they'll handle numerous formats but they default to all kinds of strange
(and different!) formats.
