Hmm, 'R' right after power-up should let you boot from whatever's in ROM.
If that doesn't work, you might try either taking the hard disk out and
accessing it from another box, or put a SCSI or floppy controller in your
expansion box and try booting from another device ('F' would force a
floppy boot, but I don't know if that works from the expansion tray).

Those sound like the removable hard drives from my GRiD 1810, one of the
made-in-Japan plastic GRiDs.
