Re: R/382 Computer can't find OS
The only configuration is the select code for some of the
internal devices, the integrated SCSI will default to 14 and you
should see that in the boot messages, if you have some DIO adapter
plugged in that is set for select code 14 it would interfere.
Normal SCSI bus needs to be terminated at both ends, one end would
be terminated on the system board but if the other end comes out
to an external connector you may need a terminator. If you hit
enter on the keyboard while it is starting up it will post
bootable images it has found in the top right corner and will wait
for you to select one before it continues.

I just pulled my R/382 out of storage. It was working when I put it away several years ago, but now when I power it up, it passes all the self-tests and then searches for an OS to boot but can't find one. The hard drive has HP BASIC on it, the drive is spinning, but that's as far as I've gotten.
