SCSI trouble on a MicroVAX IIGPX

I was recently rummaging through a MicroVAX II GPX, and found the card cage,
as well as the convenient HD trays. I proceeded, out of curiosity, to remove
the RZ55 and what seemed like a SCSI card as well as some other card mounted
above the aforementioned card, connected to the tape drive. After a while, I
decided to plug it all in again, but the VAX didn't seem to agree with my
engineering principles. When I had chosen language, I reached the PROM prompt.
It seemed to take a long time at the "6..." before the prompt, though.
I know nothing about the VAX prompt, but I know that "b" or "boot" has caused
it to boot before, so I did thus:


What could have caused this? Have I inserted the QBUS card incorrectly? Or
does the SCSI (Is it SCSI at all?) cable have t0o be inserted in any
particular way into the drive?
This is rather alarming, I don't wish to have inadvertently destroyed a fine
VAX. =/

En ligne avec Thor 2.6.
Vi m?ste vara r?dda om varandra - det ?r v?rt enda reciproka pronomen.
