Hi All -
The good news this weekend: I got a free Sun Ultra 1 170E as a hand-me-down
from my wife's employer.
The bad news: I downloaded the latest OBP from Sun, set the files into
place, powered down the box, moved the jumper J2003 over to 2-3 for write
enable, put the cover on and powered up.
But the box never comes up. No video, no "OK".
Keyboard lights flash 3 times, looks like it clears Sun's POST but I've not
been able to successfully set up a tip to the U1. CD-ROM makes a few
noises - maybe a little from the drives - but the CPU fan never comes on.
Before I tried this, the machine installed Solaris 9 fine - and it was quite
noisy when everything spun up.
I've done this successfully on my SS10 and E3000. Any ideas on what to do
