MPE/IX 7.1 ON A500 SYSTEM?

I am new to this area. Does anybody know if I can install 7.1 on the A500 box?
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Hello David,

Yes, the e3000 A500 can run MPE OS version 7.0 and 7.5.
A problem well defined is half solved.

Hello David,

Powerpatch #2 is now the most current powerpatch available on MPEiX 7.0 OS release.
King is the customer!

David,

Is this a recent A500 or an old one ? If it includes PA-8700 processor(s), only 7.5 is supporting those.

David,

Initially I too will say yes, but I would advise going to the most current PowerPatch or 7.5. If your box had the PA8700 chips, I believe that you'd already be on 7.5 and the discussion is a mute point.

HTH,
