Updating AlphaBIOS to SRM on an AlphaPC 164LX
I am trying to update from AlphaBIOS to SRM. The system is an
AlphaPC 164LX and the processor is a 21164, Rev 7.2. I am running
I downloaded file "lx164_v5_8.exe" from ftp.digital.com, which is
labelled as "AlphaPC 164LX - SRM firmware". I copied the file to
a FAT formatted floppy renaming it to "fwupdate.exe". With the
floppy in the drive, I went to the "AlphaBIOS Setup" menu, and
selected "AlphaBIOS Upgrade". I then get the following error window:
Searching lx164nt.rom Error
Invalid IP address for Host or TFTP Server on Network 0
I hit return to leave that and it starts reading from the diskette, then
returns to the "AlphaBIOS Setup" screen for a while. It then starts
to do some sort of apparent reboot, then just goes to a blank blue screen.
It clearly does nothing to the flash ROM since I'm still able to bring
up the system using AlphaBIOS, just like always.
What am I doing wrong?
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
