I removed 6 of the 8 memory modules, 2 modules is the minimum.
An Origin 200 has only a single CPU module. There are CPU modules with
only a single CPU and CPU modules with two CPUs on one module. I have a
dual R10k 180 MHz module.
There is no GFX as the Origon 200 can't have GFX at all. (But there is a
hack to put a SI / ESI XIO board from an Octane into a XBox and connect
it to a Origin 200.)
Yes, I "kreidlered" the machine, i.e. disassembled it and reseated all

Now it hangs even earlier:

I have no other working Origin 200. I had only access to an other
machine for a few houres when I got this box.

Apropos XBox: I have the XBox connector PCB. But it loooks like I need
some funky flex cables to connect this board to the Origion 200 main
