Way back in the day there was something called MULIC. This stood for Model Unique Licensed Internal Code. This was unlike today where the same media copy of 7.4 will run on all machines which support IBM i 7.4.
There was something called FULIC. I think the F stood for Feature: https://www-01.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?infotype=DD&subtype=RP&htmlfid=ENUS843954
Odd that this doesn't mention the 200. I wonder if that only ran stuff prior to the releases shown there?
Places like idevcloud use VTL or Virtual Tape Libraries. They have souped up VTL's which can attach many ancient tape drives directly to the VTL and thus don't care what is supported on the Power system. They would duplicate your tape to the VTL and then could restore to the Power system. The thing is, they would not do a full system restore from that tape since that OS is too old to run on current Power Servers. But some of these guys are old hands at doing these kind of unsupported migrations and could get the data itself restored to a newer version of the OS.
