So you want to play Adventure, but don’t know how to turn on the PDP-11? These instructions are for booting our dual rack machine from its RL01 drives, although booting the single cabinet machine from the RK05 is very similar.
Detailed instructions for booting a PDP-11, including lots and lots of photos.
That was amazingly cool! I’d love to see a similar photo essay of a VAX 11/780 being booted. If I recall correctly they had a special separate microprocessor connected to a serial terminal to perform a bootstrap from an 8″ floppy drive.
