Yes, its a 2011-c34. I have no problem booting from the rom. I hear
the hd spin up but then it slows down again and the light stays on. I
get a 1701 error and an indication to press f1. After pressing f1 the
computer boots from either the floppy or the rom.

I wish I could have made backups first but it was doa when I got it. Do
you know if the parts (hd floppy) are interchangeable with ps/2

Thanks for the software source tip.
