Cannot bootstrap on TK50?

» close window

The Question is:

I'm currently trying to boot from a TK50 Tape Drive.  When I try to boot the
 tape I get an error that consists of the following:
"%sysboot% can't find TUDRIVER" or something of that matter.  Anyway, I was
 just wondering if that means that my Tape is shot?  Thanks Wizard.

The Answer is :

  Either your tape drive is malfunctioning, you are using an incorrect
  boot command, the target tape cartridge does not contain a bootable
  system, or this is an unusual or incorrect hardware configuration.
  The OpenVMS Wizard strongly recommends a move to the use of CD-ROM
  media and distributions for all OpenVMS VAX systems.
