OpenVMS on Windows NT Only (Whitebox) Systems?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a DEC Server 3305 (Model:  FR - K7F4W - AB) with SRM version 5.1-202
 (dated 2/11/98).
It has a 4.? GB SCSI disk (dka0), a tape driver, a cdrom (DKA400), a floppy.
 128MB memory.
At present it runs NT 4.0 Server (SP6).  Apparently, Microsoft is not intending
 to support new OS (e.g., Windows 2000) on alpha.
Can this box run (be made to run) OpenVMS?

The Answer is :

  There is no support for OpenVMS on this system, and an upgrade program
  was made available for folks that had purchased "whitebox" (Windows NT
  only) systems to acquire a system that is supported by OpenVMS.
