Yes, it is AS 1000A (at least that says the box and manuals :)
According to

Hardware type    aliases          MILO image
AS 1000A (EV4)   noritake         N/A
AS 1000A (EV5)   noritake-primo   N/A

at ftp://gatekeeper.dec.com/pub/digital/Linux-Alpha/Kernels/ there
are some files named "noritake-2030-srm-ev[45]-XXnov.img", so I
suppose that are kernels that can be loaded from SRM... I will try
