|With a lot of help from Rich Alderson and crew I now have TOPS-20 V4.1 running on a real KS10. This process also answered a number of hardware questions.|
There has been some discussion about the bootstrap being broken, how the emulators fix the problem, and how a real KS10 might behave. Well, a real KS10 will not boot from the TOPS-20 V4.1 installation tape. I took some hints from the emulator documentation and on the KS10 console did:
After that the BOOT> prompt was displayed.
I also now know that the tape reading problem is in the tapes that I created on the Sun server, not in the TU45.
