That's quite a coincidence that you should post this video now.  I'm expecting delivery of my first Alpha system any day now.  I haven't had a chance to watch the video yet, but I'm sure the info will come in handy soon.

SGI:  Indigo, Indigo2, Octane, Origin 300
Sun:  SPARCstation 20 (x3), Ultra 2, Blade 2500, T5240
HP:  9000/380, 425e, C8000
Digital: DECstation 5000/125, PWS 600au

Congrats on your Alpha! Smile

What type of system are you getting?

You might need to install AlphaBIOS onto your machine before you can install Windows NT or 2000, as it doesn't come standard, but just look at my AlphaBIOS thread for some direction in this regard.

I hope the video helps!

It's a Personal Workstation 600au.  I don't want to derail your video thread, so I've posted about it in the "Latest Purchase" thread.

I'm sure it will when it comes time to install NT!  Thanks again.
