yes, this looks familiar to me :), another AV 4300 i have here:

my AV 530 status:
i took PROM away from mainboard, placed it back there and now everything is
working fine. i did one little test and i figured out that it was placed there
wrong side(!). changes are saved after reboot, i do not need to set up
graphics card frequency anymore.
i got disk with DG/UX from another machine (i think it was from AV 4100) and i
managed it to work booting install kernel in single-user mode and recompiling
generic one:
  b sd(ncsc(),0)root:/dgux.installer -s
  # sysadm...etc.
  # uname -a
  dgux radiator 5.4R3.00 (RADIATOR) generic AViiON mc88100
so now i have working system and waiting for installation media and tons of
documentation (i have to pick up them from former reseller of DG).
now i just need to find some AT keyboard somewhere ;), but that will not be so
big deal..
