8510B operating system tapes

In an effort to resurrect a HP 8510B, I'm looking for the firmware tapes.
I don't know if Agilent still have some copies or could provide the binary files to be written on the tapes, but perhaps some forum user may have them.

Another option could be to de-solder the EEPROMs on the non-volatile memory board of a working unit and copy them.
If I'll find a working donor unit, I'm willing to try this option and share with others the images in order to preserve these wonderful beasts from extinction.
Will Agilent consider this as a IP infringement?

Thank you,
Marco
