Sounds a lot like the cpu (POWER1, I believe) board in what I had. I
think it was 7012. Also had a 7006 which was PPC. The latter ran Aix
happily. The former I could never get a console out of but managed to
get something out of the diagnostic leds. Eventually I gave it to
someone with another one.
I believe there's no os but Aix that might run on it, but I'd be happy
if I was wrong.
I appear to be temporarily using gmail's horrible interface. I
apologise for any failure in my part in trying to make it do the right
thing with post formatting.
