I acquired an HP zx2000 system. I had to then aquire an Itanium 2 cpu, vrm etc.
I got the system assembled but I've got a couple of questions
First the system starts up the power led is lit but the system led flashes green colour, there is no display on the vdu.
The system has a pci radeon 7000 vga card I wondered is it that the system requires an agp card to display on the vdu.
This leads to the second question - do you have to use the supported cards, disks etc listed by HP, or can you use unsupported cards, disks etc if your using an os such as Debian?
