OK, I'll be bad and reply to my own message. Just booted the system, the
problem is the TK50 controller. So, now I'm wondering if the version of
the ROMs on the TQK50 makes any difference.

Gonna be a bit of a pain if I've got to downgrade the system to a MV2 if I
want to put a modern version of VMS on it.
