So...  I was in a computer store here in Cleveland the other day, and found something, shall I say, interesting.

Not 1, but 2 Daystar Genesis MP systems.

I asked about them, and was told 'If I bought one, I had to take the other one...'

Quick specs on the systems.

Both have 4 604e processors, at 233MHz each, 1536 MB ram, and 6 9.1GB ultra160 scsi drives on an adaptec controller.

I'm guessing they were used for video editing, however no hardware or software for that.

$10 dollars, a backache, and a less-than-happy wife later, I'm quite pleased!

Install the BeOS!!! It'll do SMP with all 4 processors. Bar possibly Linux, no other OS will do them justice!

SCORE!!!!!

You can never tell what you will find when you go poking around.

Congrats on the great finds.

Wow good fine, I have one of these on my wish list.

not to resurrect a dead post, but after a flood, one of the 2 systems was destroyed...  Happens to be the one I scavenged all the ram and such for out of the other system

It did run BeOS wonderfully!!

Now I have a 'bare bones' system left, and I honestly need the room as I acquired a 'new' NeXTstation Turbo Color, and an SGI Indy from the TV station I work at...

At a closer look, it has the quad 180MHz 604e card, making it the Genesis MP 720, I believe.

It has no ram, or video card, but does have a CD-Rom drive.

I was going to post it on EBay, but I figured my chances of someone here wanting it is much better than EBaying it...

When I last ran it, it worked perfect...  My other option is if anyone has ram and a PCI video card that would work, and they'd be willing to part with them, I might rebuild it...

If you're interested either way, send me a PM with an offer!

Trades welcome (Working Color Classic, etc...)
