Booting from OpenVMS from CD-ROM?

» close window

The Question is:

Can I boot openvms alpha 7.1-2 from cd on a Alpha 433au using a scsi cd-rom
 attached to the 50-pin port of my Qlogic KZPBA-CX scsi controller card? I have
 the Intel SIO controller onboard, not the crpress pci peripherial controller,
 so I can't boot from m
y IDE cd-rom.

The Answer is :

  Yes.  No.  Maybe.  Please see the OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions
  (FAQ) for discussions of working with third-party SCSI hardware -- the
  OpenVMS Wizard here assumes you would not be asking this question in
  this way if you were not attempting to use third-party (unsupported)
  SCSI hardware.  As such, please see the information in the OpenVMS FAQ.
