» close window

The Question is:

OpenVMS installation on an Alpha 500au fails. a device on the boot line or in
 BOOT_DEV cannot be found  in the config table(CFG_DEV_NOT_FOUND).

The Answer is :

  Please ensure you have current OpenVMS firmware installed and have
  selecte OpenVMS as the OS_TYPE.  Please also ensure you have read
  the OpenVMS FAQ section on supported and unsupported platforms (eg:
  the Personal Workstation -a series is not supported), and particularly
  have read the discussions of the ATA (IDE) CD-ROM devices and boot
  paths found on various of the Personal Workstation series systems.
  For assistance with troubleshooting your SCSI or ATA devices and
  your system hardware -- another obvious potential cause -- please
  contact your hardware services organization.  Your local prefered
  services organization should check the bus length and bus integrity,
  the bus termination (if appropriate), the devices that are present,
  device and controller firmware revisions (if appropriate), and the
  many other I/O-related details that can potentially be involved.
