    Thanks for your reply!

    Yes I've booted the system with the OS8 disk server. But it seems OS8 doesn't recognize the RX01.
    Since the drive is triggered by the boot loader and not by a DIR command in OS8, I think I have to
    make some settings in OS8. Can you tell me where I can find the info to setup that RX8E handler?

    Those will be the next steps then

    The OS/8 "RESOURC /E" command will tell you if the RX8E handlers are configured in OS/8.
