after 3 years, it BOOTED !!!
the images, taken some minutes ago, are here:
we removed the cpu boards, we looked all the chips in it ...
eating pizza and sicilian food (you can see it in the photos),
and we re-inserted them ...
and, just for a desperate test, we tried CTRL-BOOT ...
and, THE CPU was RUNNING! so we tested all the console
cables ... that seem not working ... we found another
cable, with a null-modem converter, so we connected an old
IBM terminal ...
and, it was incredible, we had the CONSOLE CURSOR!!! :)))
the next step is to FIND what was faulty ... a false contact in the
board connectors ???
any other hint? :)
p.s. tonight we want to install UNIX. :D
