Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

Not sure about the SMART 2/E, but I can confirm the SMART working in the Prosignia and due to the fact it based on the same technology it is most probably supported. Missing W9x drivers for these controllers are definitely an issue. Did not think about tis due to the fact mine are running Netware …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

Wide SCSI controllers for EISA are hard to find. Best fit would be the Compaq SMART 2/E RAID Controller, while the Adaptec 2740W might be the easiest to find. There is a wide SCSI EISA availiable from Compaq as well (PN 199633-001) based on the NCR 825 (which is more common than the onboard NCR 710 …

Re: The Compaq Systempro LT

Anyone here on the thread, except for me, with a Systempro/XL and both a 1.44 and 1.2MB FDD? I am trying to figure out how the 1.2MB drive was cabled to the MB. Why do you ask? You can see both different drives installed in my /XL in one of my prevoious posts. So yes, its possible and it was …

Re: The Compaq Systempro LT

Funny, I own a Proliant 1000 featuring the same 486 system board as the Prosignia 486 3080, while another one has a different Pentium 60 motherboard. Probably some sysops or Compaq technicans swapped motherboards and housings from differnt machines and created these kind of bastards? Even the …

Re: Compaq Prosignia 3080 / 486DX33

Congratulations, I own two of these systems myself. Along with many more Compaq servers including the 1500 and 5000. As you allready found out the box does not have any usual BIOS, instead allmost everything is configured by the ECU (EISA configuration utility). This can be started from floppy disks …

Re: Need help with a Wildcat 3DLabs 4210

Systems using AGPpro are usually found amoung the high end workstation models of different manufacturers. In my collection IBM Intellistation Mpro and HP Kayak XM800 come to my mind. Intellistation uses an MSI OEM board while the Kayak board seems ASUS branded. Tyan is another manufacturer doing …

Re: The Compaq Systempro LT

Deskpro /L used the same power supply as well, just the PS-housing is different, but the PCB is the same. I successfully transplanted one to my dead systempro once, so I am sure. Prosignia 486 (aka 3080) seems to use a different more cubic PS, while Sytempro uses a stretched one. eisapc

Re: 486DX-50 MHz EISA system

Nice build. I might have a spare EISA Anylan, if you have a matching hub/switch (Anylan is not compatible with Ethernet) otherwise you need to look for a 3C595 which is quite rare. I probably have a PM2022 with floppy as well but recommend to use a wide SCSI controller if you really want to use the …

Re: My "new" HP Z400 Workstation.

The Z400 is surely an upcoming high quality retro system that can actually be pursued for a very good price. Got myself a Z400, two Z600 and a Z800 after finding the Win7 restore CDs in company scrap. Super solid high quality systems, designed for every day use. The Z800 was equipped with an Nvidia …
