  • floppy drive : 1.2 Megabytes, 5.25 inch,
  • tape streamer : Tandberg TDC 3640, ND 110217,ND 229-1255, Serial No 378820, Incoming date 30-06-88
  • Hard drive : MICROPOLIS 170MB, M/N:1375, S/N:8052560038, P/N:900579-18-6A1

Power Supply

  • Wiener DN 03, 390 W


  • power connector : IEC type C16
  • console connector : DB25F


On the inside of the front door

  • label at the top
FLOPPY: 187-3588
STREAMER: 229-1255
DISK: 228-1919

On the front of the cabinet (behind the front door)

  • printed label above tape streamer / floppy drive
  • Norsk Data ID LABEL at the bottom
SYSTEM NO: 9883.21233


  • Some basic cleaning as the system has been standing most likely for a long time.
  • Document all serial and model numbers on devices.
  • Image the SCSI disk before attempting a boot.DoneDone
  • Image the SCSI tape before attempting a boot.DoneDone
Failed with 0 bytes and errors. Tape seems new and has no labels so is probably blank.
  • Check the power supply condition, start with the test measuring points.
  • Make a cable for the console terminal.


2016-09-21 : Pulled out devices tray and PSU. Imagined HDD and read out some info from it. Initial start connected to a linux pc did cause a crackle and bad smell as the drive wound up. Afraid it had let out the magic smoke, but did power off, check everything, and try another powerup. Seems to work fine now, managed to dump out image so hopefully nothing important is broken. Still the HDD bearings sound awful at powerup, so expect this drive wont last.
2016-09-15 : Started going through the system, documenting it and basic cleaning in preparation for getting it up.
2015: System donated to me from Gandalf.
