VAXstation & MicroVAX boot process

MicroVAX 2000/VAXstation 2000 boot messages

The initial message will be something of the form:

	 KA410-A V1.2

KA410-A will be displayed with the switch in multi-user MicroVAX 2000 mode, KA410-B if set to single user VAXstation 2000. V1.2 is the ROM rev level (for 4- or 8-plane colour graphics board, V2.1 is required). In the count-down a “_” means the item wasn't found.

Message Error:

? E 0040 0000.0005	clock battery needs charged
? C 0080 0000.4001	odd-ball terminal as console - should still work
