The Question is:
According to the installation guide, I should be able to boot my VAX-4600
from the V7.2 distribution CD using root SYS1 and be able to get a "full"
VMS running, like is done on Alphas.
WhenI attempt this, however, it boots but reaches a point where it
complains that the system disk is write locked and it hangs in mount
My CDROM is a StorageWorks drive attached to an HSD10 hung off a DSSI bus.
The Answer is :
This would appear to be a problem with the particular VAX 4000 model
600 series system hardware configuration or with the OpenVMS software
involved and its interaction with the configuration -- please contact
the Compaq Customer Support Center for assistance in resolving this.
