To anyone's knowledge, can an AS/400 68-pin SCSI 1GB hard drive be copied or "cloned" such that the new drive will boot up exactly the way the original did (i.e., like "Ghosting" a PC drive)? Is there any other way to deal with a drive that is experiencing random seek errors that prevent an AS/400 9402 FO2 system from reaching a log-in screen before erring out with 6104FFF4 in register 2. Thanks!
