I need to know how to make this thing boot from the hard drive, it will detect, format, do all the fun stuff, cept boot, funny thing is FDISK recognizes it to have 19 cylinders and 64 heads, it's a rodime 0632, but my main concern is how do you make the scsi controller boot up. it's going to be used in my 3rd IBM 5160

found the thread, but don't have the facilities to re-program the chip, unless the xt-ide can do it..

nope, the TMC bios is 16k, and the xtide only addresses 8k.
andrew lynch has an eeprom programming service that you can utilize to get a programmed part for this.
