The bootstrap program loads the OS/8 monitor from its distribution medium and initializes its operation. Each type of storage device (for example, RL01 disk, DECtape, etc.) has a separate bootstrap program. Your system may have either an internal hardware bootstrap loader or a programmer's console. (Some hardware configurations have both.) The hardware bootstrap loader loads and starts an internally stored bootstrap program under the control of a switch located on the front of the processor. The programmer's console has switches that let you manually enter the bootstrap program into memory and start it. The following paragraphs tell you how to load the system medium and to initialize (bootstrap) it. You will also find these bootstrap procedures in the OS/8 System Generation Manual and in the OS/8 Device _____________________________ ___________ Extensions User's Guide. _______________________ 5.1 General Bootstrap Procedures This section tells you how to use the hardware bootstrap loader and how to manually enter and initialize a bootstrap from the programmer's console. The remaining sections of this document provide loading and bootstrap procedures for the OS/8 Combined Kit distribution media. 5.1.1 Operating a Hardware Bootstrap - If your system has a hardware bootstrap loader and the processor is a: PDP-8/A 1. Load the distribution medium into its device (see Sections 5.2 through 5.5). 3 2. Run the bootstrap loader: o Press the BOOT button twice on the programmer's console. or o Raise and lower the BOOT switch on the operator's panel. PDP-8/E 1. Load the distribution medium into its device (see Sections 5.2 through 5.5). 2. Lower and raise the HALT switch. 3. Lower and raise the SW switch. This procedure will have no effect if there is no hardware bootstrap loader in the system for the device that runs your OS/8 distribution medium. 5.1.2 Entering a Bootstrap Manually - If your system has no hardware bootstrap loader for your distribution medium, you must load and start the bootstrap, using the programmer's console as follows: 1. Load the distribution medium into its device (see Sections 5.2 through 5.5). 2. Use the steps in Table 1 to manually load and initiate the appropriate bootstrap program (see Sections 5.2 through 5.5). 4 Table 1 Manual Bootstrap Procedure ---------------------------------------------------------------------- | | | Processor | | Step | Function |-----------------------------------------------| | | | PDP-8/A | PDP-8/E | |------|-------------|-------------------|---------------------------| | 1 | Halt the | Press HLT/SS | Lower and raise the HALT | | | processor | | switch | | | | | | | 2 | Display | a.

This procedure will have no effect if there is no hardware bootstrap loader for the RL01 on your system. 5.3.3 Manual Bootstrap Procedure - If your system has a programmer's console, use its switches as described in Section 5.1.2 to enter and initialize the RL01 bootstrap program listed in Table 3. 8 Table 3 RL01 Bootstrap Program Address Instruction _______ ___________ Loading and starting address--->0001 6600 0002 7201 0003 4027 0004 1004 0005 4027 0006 6615 0007 7002 0010 7012 0011 6615 0012 0025 0013 7004 0014 6603 0015 7325 0016 4027 0017 7332 0020 6605 0021 1026 0022 6607 0023 7327 0024 4027 0025 0377 0026 7600 0027 0000 0030 6604 0031 6601 0032 5031 0033 6617 0034 5427 0035 5001 5.4 RX01 and RX02 Diskettes 5.4.1 Loading Procedure - If your OS/8 Combined Kit medium is a single-density (RX01) diskette or a double-density (RX02) diskette, refer to Figure 3 and perform the procedures listed below to load the diskette into the drive. CAUTION You can insert a single-density diskette into either an RX01 or an RX02 drive. You can insert a double-density diskette into an RX02 drive only. 9 RX02 picture not included here Figure 3 Loading the RX01 and RX02 Diskette Ordinarily you should load the diskette that contains the monitor and system programs (system diskette) into drive 0, which is the left-hand slot. You can use drive 1 (right-hand slot), if necessary, as long as there is no diskette in drive 0 when you start the bootstrap program. 1. Select a diskette from the kit. If you have an RX01 kit, use diskette 1, 2, or 3. If you have an RX02 kit, use diskette 1 or 2. (The other diskette(s) in the kit contain the remaining OS/8 modules.) 2. Open the drive's door: a. Notice that the door latch is embedded in the horizontal bar that is part of the door assembly. b. Compress the latch between the thumb and index finger. The door is spring-loaded and will open when the latch disengages. 3. Grasping the diskette by its top (label) edge, remove it from its protective storage jacket. (This is not the black protective cover in which the diskette is permanently sealed.) CAUTION Do not touch the exposed portions of the diskette that show through the slots in the protective cover. 4. Insert the diskette label-side up (the seams of the protective cover are down) into the horizontal slot in the drive. 5. Close the door. (It will automatically lock when you push it down.) 5.4.2 Hardware Bootstrap Procedure - If your system has a hardware bootstrap loader for the RX01 or RX02 diskette, perform the steps in Section 5.1.1. This procedure will have no effect if there is no hardware bootstrap loader for the RX01 or RX02 on your system. 10 5.4.3 Manual Bootstrap Procedure - If your system has a programmer's console, use its switches as described in Section 5.1.2 to enter and initialize the RX01 or RX02 bootstrap program listed in Tables 4 and 5, respectively.

The system on the DECtape distribution medium cannot be bootstrapped in an 8K TD8E ROM environment. 12 5.5.1 Loading Procedure - If your OS/8 Combined Kit medium is DECtape, mount the tape as follows: 1. Select either tape 1 or tape 2 from the kit. (Tape 3 contains the remaining OS/8 modules.) 2. Remove the tape from its protective canister. 3. Remove the plastic seal from the end of the tape. 4. Mount the tape (label-side out) on one of the left-hand hubs of the DECtape transport. You can use either the right or the left drive. (If your system has more than one DECtape transport, you must use the transport that is wired for TD8E units 0 and 1.) 5. Unwrap a few turns of tape, pass it over the drive's read/write head (dull side toward the head), and wind it onto the takeup reel on the right-hand hub. 6. Wind several more turns of tape onto the takeup reel so that the tape is not slack. 7. Press the REMOTE/LOCAL switch to LOCAL. 8. Wind more tape onto the takeup reel by momentarily pressing the forward/reverse switch (marked with left and right arrows) toward the right arrow. 9. Rotate the numbered thumbwheel switch to 0. 10. Press the REMOTE/LOCAL switch to REMOTE. 11. Press the WRITE ENABLE/WRITE LOCK switch to WRITE LOCK to protect the distribution medium. 5.5.2 Hardware Bootstrap Procedure - If your system has a hardware bootstrap loader for the TD8E, perform the steps in Section 5.1.1. This procedure will have no effect if there is no hardware bootstrap loader for the TD8E on your system. 5.5.3 Manual Bootstrap Procedure - If your system has a programmer's console, use its switches as described in Section 5.1.2 to enter and initialize the TD8E bootstrap program listed in Table 6. 13 Table 6 TD8E DECtape Bootstrap Program Address Instruction _______ ___________ Loading and starting address--->7300 1312 7301 4312 7302 4312 7303 6773 7304 5303 7305 6777 7306 3726 7307 2326 7310 5303 7311 5732 7312 2000 7313 1300 7314 6774 7315 6771 7316 5315 7317 6776 7320 0331 7321 1327 7322 7640 7323 5315 7324 2321 7325 5712 7326 7354 7327 7756 7330 7747 7331 0077 7332 7400 5.6 Running the System After you load and run a bootstrap, the Keyboard Monitor should identify itself by displaying its prompting symbol, a period (.). The system is waiting for you to enter one of the OS/8 commands described in the OS/8 System Reference Manual. If there is no response from the ____________________________ system, repeat the bootstrap procedure. If there is still no response from the system, call your local DIGITAL sales office for assistance. When you have determined that OS/8 is running, DIGITAL suggests that you make one or more working copies of the distribution medium for daily use. You can make copies by using one of the file manipulation utility programs listed in Table 7 and described in the OS/8 System ___________ Reference Manual. ________________ 14 Table 7 File and Media Duplication Utility Programs ---------------------------------------------------------------------- | Program | CCL Command | Use | |---------|-------------|--------------------------------------------| | FOTP | COPY | Copies files between file-structured | | | | devices.

Many of the programs allow you to enter an option to the Command Decoder. Other programs display their version codes when they begin operation. To get the version codes of device handlers, you can use either the BUILD or ODT programs. Table 9 lists the modules and the methods for obtaining their version codes. Additional information about some of the methods is given in the notes that follow.

Load the program with the GET command, then use ODT to examine the contents of the specified location. .GET SYS:prog.ex .ODT aaaaa/cccc where: prog.ex is the name of the program aaaaa is the memory location that contains the version code nnnn is an octal number that is the 6-bit ASCII equivalent of the version code. The left two digits represent the first character, and the right two digits represent the second character. Example: To obtain the version code for the ABSLDR program, type: .GET SYS: ABSLDR .ODT 12200/6602 The value 6602 is the version code in 6-bit ASCII. It translates into the characters 6B as follows: 66 02 __ __ | | V V 6 B 2. Use the RESORC CCL command with the /E option to list the active handlers in the current system head. If the handler is not in the system head, you must: a. Run the BUILD program (see OS/8 System Reference Manual). o Load it into BUILD with the LOAD command. o Make it active with the INSERT command o Insert it into the system head with the BOOT command. b. Use the RESORC/E command to get a listing of the system's handlers. 20 3. To obtain some program version codes, you must run the FUTIL program as follows: .R FUTIL bbbb.ddd/nnnn where: bbbb is the block number on the system device ddd is the displacement into the block where the version code resides. nnnn is an octal number that is the 6-bit ASCII equivalent of the version code. The left two digits represent the first character, and the right two digits represent the second character. (See the example in Note 1.) 4. To obtain some handler version codes, you must use ODT as follows: .LOAD filnam.BN .ODT aaaaa/nnnn where: filnam.BN is the filename of the handler aaaaa is the memory location that contains the version code nnnn is an octal number that is the 6-bit ASCII equivalent of the version code. The left two digits represent the first character, and the right two digits represent the second character.
