The A900 system has a couple of 12009A HPIB interfaces. The
system didn't come with any drives but I have have a few HPIB
drives and floppies I could connect to it. I currently don't
have any HPIB tape drives.
Do you have original installation tapes, or backup tapes
created from an already installed OS?
I did find your paper on cracking into RTE-A if you don't
have the password and downloaded several of the manuals from

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
a DOS-PC with HP-IB card installed and a program
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
of the system file.
You could try just : %BDC27 but then it uses the first
available boot file.
