Did someone try it? Or have someone installation disks? I had a chance to buy a TP 850 but the software was missing ...

I have OS/2 Warp PPC edition ISO and try to run it on RS/6000 Model 43P but with no success.

The problem is I forgot it ... I have to inspect my old notes.
I remember only it was very big machine (some 12 lbs), cheap (ca 40 usd), working, with AIX something - I do not know these systems.
I left it alone, without OS/2.

Interesting .... I concentrate on collecting smaller Thinkpads. I was thinking about TP 850 only for test purposes.
But if it is so rare ...

the TP 850 (and its brother which i forget the designation of) were/are RS6000/power PC..
i have an 850 as well but with no HDD..
it came from boeing and they tend to grind up the HDD's..
these are 2.5 inch scsi drives and i have not been able to find one..

so if the 850 is still available and you don't want it and it DOES have the scsi HDD i want it.. :-)

i have the camera on mine too and a fellow with a factory WHITE thinkpad wanted to swap at one time..
i still have not found the 850 after my recent move but its here someplace.. :)

just seeing this thread after nearly a year..!

i found the TP850..

i had not thought to sell it but rather put it near one of the two thinkpad S30's i have in my little thinkpad museum..

it would be fun to find a SCSI 2.5 inch HDD to try in it..

i have a vague recollection of having some sort of recovery CD or O/S for it someplace..

old topic eh?

You can find 2.5 SCSI on mac DUO laptops (eg. Duo 230). I had one of them at the past (the DUO) and the
HDD was definitely 2.5 SCSI!

coming back to this, i find two powerbook duo's on ebay..
both working..
BUT, the problem is that there is a very proprietary cable and caddy/housing required.. while the housing can be left out the cable sure can not.. :(

i have no idea what apple used in their "black box" computers but i do know the IBM scsi drive interface cable is highly unlikely to be the same..
IBM used a proprietary HDD caddy at that time for all their thinkpads..
the 850 powerpc rs6000 thinkpad requires that same caddy with the scsi cable which is not the same as the standard ide cable..

perhaps i should have swapped the camera from the 850 for the factory white thinkpad from japan.. it was something like a 700 or 720 series.. very interesting and rare here in the usa..
