We have also succeeded in archiving MPE/iX versions 4.0, 5.0. 5.5 and 6.0. MPE/iX is the version of MPE that runs on the PA-RISC computers beginning with the 930 in 1987. These archives are complete.
The image files (.hpi) are virtual discs that do not require any vintage mass storage devices to use. But, you will need an HP-IB interface in your PC to use the image files. The MPE V images will work with either PCI or ISA HP-IB cards in your PC; however, the MPE/iX images will only work with ISA HP-IB cards. Be sure to visit Ansgar Kuekes' outstanding site to learn how to use hpi files with his hpdrive emulation utility. Contact us if you have a system that you are ready to boot. You can find a listing of all the MPE software we have on CD and DDS tape here.
