I acquired a Microbotics 1230XA 50/50 from a seller here. The 4MB SIMM that it came with works just fine.

The 128MB SIMM I bought also from ebay unfortunately does not. The A1200 crashes during boot when trying to load workbench. Gurus and other errors report "8000 0003". I did manage to set the RAM size and Speed (60ns) using the setXA util. The RAM tests performed on the Microbotics boot disk (run during the startup-sequence, before WB is loaded) test the first 8MB of RAM, and these tests fail.

Bad SIMM?
