Installing OpenVMS?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a Digital Personal Workstation 500a that has both VMS and UNIX loaded.
 At the moment it boots up in UNIX. What do I do to boot up in VMS?

The Answer is :

  You will require a spare disk, and you will have to switch the SRM
  console OS_TYPE value over to "VMS" or "OpenVMS" and power-cycle
  the system.
  Instructions on installing OpenVMS Alpha on the Personal Workstation
  -au series and on other Alpha systems is included in the OpenVMS
  installation documentation.  Please see the references in the OpenVMS
  FAQ for pointers to the on-line copies of the OpenVMS documentation.
  Note: Neither OpenVMS nor Tru64 UNIX is supported on the Personal
  Workstation -a series systems -- these systems target(ed) Windows NT
  support only.  These systems may or may not have configurations
  containing hardware supported by OpenVMS (or Tru64 UNIX).
