  Hello !

i'm trying to decode the disc structure of a HP7912 hard disk attached
to a HP 64000 uC System. build in 1985! yeaaah

I managed to copy the HP7912 sectors on a MO-disc SCSI on series hp 9000
/ 300.

i read in the MO disc image on a PC. now i have a 54MB image file.

has anybody some infos about structure and tables of the directory of
the HP64000 disc format ??

it's not HFS (HPUX) and NOT LIF....

i decoded the directory entries for name and date and size of file. now
there are two 16bit words describing first and last page used for
storing data. i have no idea how this 16bit value is belonging to a
sector number.

any hints ??

thanks peter
