I'm working on an old ALR Revolution MP II Dual Processor Server with what appears to be an Intel Triton PCI/EISA mainboard.
It hasn't been run in a long time.
It appeared that the rechargeable battery was dead so I've replaced it.
Originally there was a message saying the battery was dead but no longer.
But, I'm still getting:
EISA Confugration nvram bad - run configuration utility
There's a screen shot attached from the 2nd screen.
The last one says:
Checking IRQ for Secondary IDE ....... IRQ 15
Setting up HDD on 1st IDE port ....... and there it just hangs......
I have the configuration utility I believe. It's an .exe file. But the system won't boot to anything including a DOS boot floppy so I'm not sure what to do next to run the config utility. My assumption is:
Boot to DOS
Run the .exe
Does that sound right?
What else am I missing here? Photo026a.jpg
