Spare Ultra 30 boot problem


I have a boot problem with my Spare Ultra 30 workstation. I've connected via serial a terminal to see the post errors. Any ideas where the error is coming from?

    Is it whole log or only part ?

    Do you change some thing for this system ?

    How many DIMMS installed ?

    ( Are You realy require repare this system ? It's very old computer. 24 years ago...)

    It's look like CPU module problem or memory problem.

    Someone has confirmed that it's the cache on the CPU which is bad. I've sourced a new CPU and will swap it out and hope it resolves the problem. I'll let you know.
