I'm pretty sure there was a TK-50 diagnostics tape (I never 
had one, but saw the DEC
techs use them).  There may also have been floppies in the 
very early MicroVAX

There was a set of CPU diags on floppies that came with our 
first 780.  I think
we also had a set of additional diagnostics on 9-track tape 
if the CPU
was fully operational.
