Thread: Restoring a Rodent Infested PS/2 Model 85 - The Progress So Far

  1. #21

    Lightbulb As I lay sleeping...

    Sounds like a duffed configuration after changing complexi.

    Researching, I posted about this on the NG a while ago. Matter of fact, it was a RETAIN tip concerning the M complex...

    Ah, memory...

    1.2.113 UNSUCCESSFUL 50 MHZ PROCESSOR INSTALLATION

    Record number: H097075

    Device: D/T8590
    Model: M
    Tip key: 012
    Date created: O92/03/31
    Date last altered: A94/04/25

    THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE 50 MHZ PROCESSOR
    BOARD, FRU P/N92F0048, USED IN THE 8590 AND 8595 ARE
    INCOMPLETE.

    NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

    AFTER REMOVING THE EXISTING PROCESSOR CARD, MOVE THE
    OVERRIDE JUMPER, J10 ON THE 8590 AND J16 ON THE 8595,
    SO THAT IT CONNECTS THE CENTER PIN AND THE PIN ON THE
    OPPOSITE END OF THE CONNECTOR. LEAVE THE OVERRIDE JUMPER
    IN THIS POSITION.

    THE SYSTEM WILL DETECT THIS CHANGE AND READ THE INITIAL
    MACHINE LOAD (IML) IMAGE FROM THE NEW REFERENCE DISKETTE.

    CONTINUE WITH THE REMAINING STEPS OF THE INSTALLATION.

    THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE MODIFIED TO REFLECT
    THIS CHANGE IN THE NEXT RELEASE OF THE PUBLICATION.

    Post RETAIN Tip H094855 I999XXXX ERRORS ON PS/2 8590, 8595, 9590 AND 9595

    1.4.29 I999XXXX ERRORS ON PS/2 8590, 8595, 9590 AND 9595

    Record number: H094855

    Device: D/T8590
    Model: M
    Tip key:
    Date created: O91/09/06
    Date last altered: A94/06/13

    SYMPTOM:
    THE INFORMATION PANEL DISPLAYS AN I999XXXX ERROR CODE DURING
    POST (POWER-ON SYSTEM TEST). (XXXX CAN BE ANY NUMBER)

    PROBLEM ISOLATION AIDS:
    THE 8590/95 SYSTEMS MAINTAIN MICROCODE ON THE DEFAULT FIXED
    DISK. IF THIS INFORMATION IS MISSING OR INACCESSIBLE DURING
    THE IML (INITIAL MICROCODE LOAD) OF THE FIXED DISK, THE
    RESULT WILL BE AN I999XXXX ERROR DISPLAYED ON THE INFORMATION
    PANEL AND/OR DISPLAY. THE SYSTEM WILL BE INOPERATIVE UNTIL
    THE ERROR CONDITION IS CORRECTED.

    NOTE: THE DEFAULT FIXED DISK IS THE DRIVE CONFIGURED AS SCSI
    DEVICE ID=6, DETERMINED BY THE DRIVE ADDRESS SWITCHES OR
    JUMPERS. USE "SET CONFIGURATION/VIEW CONFIGURATION"
    TO VERIFY THE DEFAULT DRIVE SCSI ID.
    FIX:
    MOST I999XXXX ERRORS CAN BE CORRECTED WITHOUT HARDWARE
    REPLACEMENT. THE FOLLOWING STEPS WILL CORRECT MOST I999XXXX
    ERRORS:

    1. INSURE THAT THE SELECTABLE BOOT SEQUENCE IS VALID.
    -POWER-ON PASSWORD JUMPER MOVED? * SEE NOTE
    -BOOT THE BACKUP REFERENCE DISKETTE.
    -SELECT "SET FEATURES" FROM THE MAIN MENU.
    -SELECT "SET STARTUP SEQUENCE."
    -CHECK THE LIST OF DEVICES IN THE "SET STARTUP SEQUENCE."
    IS THE DEFAULT FIXED DISK LISTED IN THE STARTUP SEQUENCE?
    -YES: RETURN TO THE MAIN MENU AND CONTINUE WITH STEPS 2 & 3.
    -NO: "CHANGE" AND "SAVE" THE STARTUP SEQUENCE TO INCLUDE
    THE DEFAULT FIXED DISK (6,0), THEN TURN OFF THE COMPUTER.
    (THE CHANGES ARE EFFECTIVE AT THE NEXT POWER-ON.)
    -IF AN I99900XX ERROR OCCURS AGAIN AT POWER-ON, CONTINUE
    WITH STEPS 2 & 3.

    2. RUN DIAGNOSTICS FROM THE REFERENCE DISKETTE.
    -TEST THE DEFAULT FIXED DISK AND SCSI ADAPTER.
    -ERROR CODE? IF YES, REPLACE THE FAILING FRU.
    -OK? PROCEED WITH STEP 3.

    3. RESTORE THE SYSTEM PARTITION.
    -PASSWORD JUMPER? * SEE NOTE
    -BOOT THE CUSTOMERS REFERENCE DISKETTE.
    -SELECT "BACKUP/RESTORE SYSTEM PROGRAMS."
    -SELECT "RESTORE THE SYSTEM PARTITION."
    -FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS ON THE SCREEN.

    4. IML TO FIXED DISK SUCCESSFUL? HARDWARE IS NOW FUNCTIONAL
    AND CUSTOMER SOFTWARE SHOULD SUCCESSFULLY LOAD.

    5. VERIFY THAT OPERATING SYSTEM SOFTWARE IS INSTALLED (DOS,
    OS/2, ETC.)
    -THE OPERATING SYSTEM MUST BE INSTALLED ON ONE OF THE DEVICES
    IN THE STARTUP SEQUENCE (NORMALLY FIXED DISK DRIVE "C" WHICH
    IS SCSI ID=6).

    * NOTE-PASSWORD JUMPER:
    IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO MOVE THE POWER-ON PASSWORD JUMPER
    (J16 - 8595, OR J10-8590) TO ENABLE AN IML TO THE REFERENCE
    DISKETTE IN DRIVE A. MOVING THIS JUMPER FORCES THE STAGE 1
    POST ROUTINE TO BRANCH TO THE DISKETTE, RATHER THAN ATTEMPT
    TO LOAD STAGE 2 POST FROM THE FIXED DISK SYSTEM PARTITION.
    (A REFERENCE DISKETTE MUST BE PRESENT IN THE A: DRIVE.) THE
    STAGE 2 POST CODE ON THE REFERENCE DISKETTE IS IDENTICAL TO
    THE CODE LOADED ONTO THE SYSTEM PARTITION. MOVING THIS JUMPER
    SETS ALL DEFAULT VALUES, EXCEPT ASCII TERMINAL MODE. IT SHOULD
    BE FURTHER NOTED, THAT MOVING THE POWER-ON PASSWORD JUMPER IS
    EFFECTIVE FOR ONLY 1 POWER-ON CYCLE BECAUSE STAGE 1 POST TRACKS
    (RECORDS) THE POSITION OF THE JUMPER EACH TIME IT IS RUN.

    * NOTE-ASCII TERMINAL MODE:
    IF ASCII TERMINAL MODE IS SET (96-8N1, VISIBLE IN INFORMATION
    PANEL), THE BATTERY VOLTAGE MUST BE REMOVED FROM THE PLANAR TO
    RESET IT. (SLIDE STIFF PAPER UNDER BATTERY CLIP FOR APPROX.
    10 TO 15 MINIUTES.)

    **********************IMPORTANT NOTE****************************

    ASCII TERMINAL MODE WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY SET BY STAGE 1 POST
    IF THERE IS NO PRIMARY VIDEO ADAPTER DETECTED (XGA ADAPTER IS
    MISSING FROM THE SYSTEM).
    ************************************************** **************

    THE FOLLOWING ERROR CODES AND CORRESPONDING RECOMMENDED ACTIONS,
    MAY BE ENCOUNTERED BY CUSTOMERS AND/OR SERVICERS:

    THE ERRORS LISTED BELOW MAY BE CORRECTED BY RESTORING THE
    SYSTEM PARTITION: REFER TO STEP 3 ABOVE.

    I999001X NO VALID DISK IML RECORD WAS FOUND ON THE FIXED DISK.
    I999002X DISK IML RECORD LOAD (READ) ERROR.
    I999003X DISK IML RECORD INCOMPATIBLE WITH PLANAR.
    I999004X DISK IML RECORD INCOMPATIBLE WITH PROCESSOR CARD.
    I999005X DISK IML NOT ATTEMPTED.
    I999006X DISK STAGE II IMAGE LOAD (READ) ERROR.
    I999007X DISK STAGE II CHECKSUM (READ) ERROR.
    THE ERRORS LISTED BELOW CAN BE CORRECTED BY RESTARTING
    THE SYSTEM USING A GOOD SYSTEM REFERENCE DISKETTE:

    I99900X1 INVALID DISKETTE IML RECORD
    I99900X2 DISKETTE IML RECORD LOAD (READ) ERROR
    I99900X3 DISKETTE IML RECORD INCOMPATIBLE WITH PLANAR.
    I99900X4 DISKETTE IML RECORD INCOMPATIBLE WITH PROCESSOR CARD.
    I99900X6 DISKETTE STAGE II IMAGE LOAD (READ) ERROR.
    I99900X7 DISKETTE STAGE II IMAGE CHECKSUM ERROR.

    I99900X5 DISKETTE IML RECOVERY PREVENTED (VALID PASSWORD AND
    CE OVERRIDE JUMPER NOT SET). ACTION: POWER-DOWN,
    TOGGLE CE OVERRIDE ON SYSTEM PLANAR (J10 ON THE 8590),
    (J16 ON THE 8595), POWER-UP.

    I9990301 NO BOOTABLE DEVICE. ACTION: RESTART USING A GOOD
    BOOTABLE OPERATING SYSTEM DISKETTE.

    I9990302 INVALID DISK BOOT RECORD. ACTION: RESTART USING A
    GOOD BOOTABLE OPERATING SYSTEM DISKETTE (I.E., DOS);
    INSTALL OPERATING SYSTEM ON FIXED DISK.

    I9990303 SYSTEM PARTITION BOOT FAILURE. ACTION: USING SYSTEM
    BACKUP REFERENCE DISKETTE, RESTORE SYSTEM PARTITION.

    I9990304 NO BOOTABLE DEVICE WITH ASCII CONSOLE. ACTION:
    RESTART THE SYSTEM USING BOOTABLE OPERATING SYSTEM
    DISKETTE.

    I9990305 NO BOOTABLE DEVICE ERROR. RESTART SYSTEM W/DISKETTE
    CHECK SELECTABLE BOOT SEQUENCE ON SYSTEM PARTITION.

    THE FOLLOWING ERRORS NORMALLY REQUIRE PROCESSOR FRU
    REPLACEMENT: .

    I9990401 UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS.
    I9990402 MISSING ROM IBM COPYRIGHT NOTICE
    I9990403 NON-IBM IML ROUTINE
    I9990600 IML OVERLAY LOGISTICS ERROR
    I9990607 IML OVERLAY CHECKSUM ERROR
    I9990609 IML OVERLAY ID ERROR

    AH-HA! IT LIVES AT LAST! Swapping the position of jumper J16 solved the issue and got it to finally read from the RefDisk! It only took close to eighteen months to reach this point but man, does it feel good. Thanks for your help with this last hiccup, I never would have guessed I'd need to swap a jumper after installing an M complex.
