Very old HP 9000

I have an old system (90's)with two HP 9000 830G
(also described as HP9000/800 Model G30)
which i cannot change easily due to propietary software problems and I'm looking for info on the hardware (cabinet wirings, cards, memory capacities standard and maximum, tape units or cd drives it will accept)
Any information will be welcome

You can install a cd/dat or both and upto 3 se scsi hard disks internally if i remember correctly

it also supports upto 768mb of memory and upto 4 HPPB cards in the back. but the more memory the longer it takes to come up!

Hi,

A 9000 G30 officially supports up to
746 MB of RAM, or unofficially 1.5 GB of third party RAM.
(IIRC, the speed of self-test is slow ...
and with 1.5 GB it might take 20 minutes
or so to self-test)

You'll probably want the "CE Handbook,
Series 9x7 Family and Model 8x7S Family",
part number A1707-90016.

(don't forget points, please)

Re: Very old HP 9000

All good stuff mentioned. FWIW, I don't think HP ever referred to it as an "830G" The G30 was "always" called a G30 - well, it did have an 8x7 predessor :)
