Stefano''s link is now broken. I had to move my site, so the link should be and yes the 2KB EPROM is correctly a dump of the boot ROM of the OC8800 but it contains only initialization and ability to load and execute a bootsector from a floppy. Not very useful if you don''t have a bootable floppy for this computer (probably CP/m). I have the machine but no floppy...

The MESS project claims they need its ROM dump.
Pehaps the 2kb image in this link is useful ?

The OC8800 and 8820 were manufactured in Monroe''s plant in Lexington South Carolina. This was the first of two attempts of Monroe to enter the desktop computer business. Operating memory was either 256k or 512K. dual 6" floppies and optional 5 or 10 Megabyte external hard drives. The model shown was intended as a system dedicated to educational use. This incorporated early verisions of software to allow a student to draw and color objects. The acutal commerical version was a single cabinet design with a 80 column dot matrix printer using 4" calculator rolls the display was an orange monochrome 8" monitor.

Gotta love the lace doily under the monitor. Classic!
