Old Digital Prioris XL 5166DP BIOS

Maybe someone out there will know what is wrong, but I have this old Digital Prioris XL that I found in storage. I thought I would put OpenBSD on it, but am having some troubles with that.

I thought a BIOS upgrade would help so I found the BIOS 1.07 online, and the instructions on how to do so.

I have set J50 pin 1+2 closed and J41 closed. I still get the error when running the BIOS update that the Boot Block is different and cannot be written. To make sure to enable boot block upgrades.

Maybe someone out there knows something about these.
