Firmware failsafe loader? (AlphaStation 200)

» close window

The Question is:

On my AlphaStation 200 4/233, I attempted to flash the firmware to version 7.
 I wasn't entirely sure what I was doing, so I did a "Full" flash, SRM Flash,
 and an ARC Flash.
Now, when the machine boots, I get the eb..ea... etc message, a bunch of stuff
 like R23, R29 saved at... (an example - the stuff scrolls by a bit too
 quickly...) and then the machine reboots in a vicious cycle.
Am I screwed?  Is it possible to reload an earlier set of firmware?

The Answer is :

  Please see topic 4600, and also please see the OpenVMS FAQ for details
  on switching and upgrading Alpha firmware and for pointers to the Alpha
  firmware website.
