  I have a couple of Grids like that but I don't remember the exact model
numbers. Only one of mine has the ICs inside the door. I'm pretty sure that
they emulate a system disk (A: drive). Mine don't have floppy drives so the
ROMs are the only way to boot one if it loses the CMOS settings. I've been
wanting to pull the ROMs and try them in the other Grids and make copies if
they work but never got around to it.
