I have an 89441A which I intend to give an overhaul...

1.

I was able to upgrade the firmware in the IF unit without any
problems, but I refrained from trying to do the same thing on the
RF unit since the procedure obviously is not without risks
since Agilent writes "If the procedure fails - Contact your Agilent
Support center" And I know that this product is no longer under
support....

Is there anyone who has experiences to share regarding the
possibility to "crash" the software in the RF unit and render it
unusable?

Trying to perform diagnostic tests:
The instrument asks for the diagnostic diskette to be inserted
but these are long gone. I have also searched in Agilent's support
areas (found firmware upgrade Thanks Agilent!) but not the diagnostic
floppy.

Is there someone out there that would be willing to share the
diagnostic floppy? I searched the forum and found posts
made in march 2012, but the diagnostic disk was not mentioned
in that thread. Is it that a special disk is also needed in order to make
a memory backup in case of memory failure?
