Happy to fill in this potentially vital missing piece of the puzzle! 😀

It's now been updated in place on VOGONSDrivers (only SquallStrife can do this), so you don't need to update your links.

A video about the Unisys Aquanta HS/6 (aka ALR 6x6). I take you through a quick tour of these monster Pentium Pro systems.

After 2½ years since picking this haul up I finally shipped out the last box of NOS parts last month. Over 80% of this haul was given away for free (just the cost of shipping). To all those who believed in this not-for-profit endeavor I am so glad you benefited from this amazing find. It all went to good homes around the globe and stayed out of the hands of resellers and scrappers. More importantly I was able to archive the rarer documentation, drivers and software from this haul that were not available online and post some here at Vogons and most of it at minuszerodegrees.net. Thanks goes to VCFED member and -0° owner modem7 for facilitating that. A complete success for vintage computer preservation in my book. Mission accomplished.

Great job, Liqmat!

Maybe do you have still some pentium pro 200/1M chips and PPro motherboards for sale/sharing?

Unfortunately, I do not. Between the ALR 6x6 systems which require six Pentium Pro CPUs each and all the dual Socket 8 motherboards the entire inventory of CPUs was allocated.

I just saw the YouTube video posted from January 12 and saw the links to this thread in the video description. So sad to learn I'm far too late. Those are quite nice systems! So envious of the people who got them.
