Re: Lucy Runs! :)
my dvd drive has 50 pin scsi. i have no cable yet. as far as i see i need one of these https://www.ebay.de/itm/SCSI-SCA-80polig...SwrxtbKLkM this adapter is plugged into one of the three front-hdd connectors and then i need a 50 pin scsi cable to connect it to the dvd drive and a molex cable for power i guess.
is this correct?

the screen goes black? maybe the octane resolution is something that isnt supported by your monitor? I would probably try changing the res to troubleshoot that.

do you have console or network access?

Re: Lucy Runs! :)
no i don't come so far. no login screen. all i get now is a empty console where i can type but no commands get executed...
when i checked printenv in prom i noticed that the system partition and osloadpartition are located @ xio(0)pci15scsi port 0 (so this is the message regarding to the alert at the beginning of the boot process) does this help in a way?

Re: Lucy Runs! :)
"only one keyboard allowed" is a very strange message - maybe try a different mouse/keyboard or make sure you have them plugged into the correct ps2 ports?

take a picture of PROM printenv, some people tend to just do a resetenv if things are acting funny.

If you can't log in and change the res, perhaps it might be a good idea to get another drive and do a fresh IRIX install
