The following Operating Systems can run on the MicroVAX II
Version 4.5 and higher can run
Version 1.2 and higher of the VAX port of NetBSD can run on a MicroVAX II. I've even built some instructions [[Installing NetBSD 1.2 on the SIMH MicroVAX II |using SIMH]] on how to do so, that may be adapted to a real MicroVAX but I don't have one to test with.
OpenBSD can run on the MicroVAX II as well, later versions are better for timing issues... 4.4 is the current good version.
The MicroVAX II is emulated in SIMH.
