Hello,

are you using an attached monitor and keyboard ? The console output is directed to the serial port by default.

"Console is on a serial Device
No further output will appear ion this output deivce."

This should be clear enough.

If you want to use your VGA, configure the console from EFI:

Shell> conconfig

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: HP-UX 11i Version 2 Installation on HP Itanium

What type of USB DVD drive are you using? Maybe it is not supported for boot. Did you try the internal drive?

Hope this helps!

Your external drive may be not supported for boot - did you try the internal drive?

Hope this helps!

Re: HP-UX 11i Version 2 Installation on HP Itanium

Without the exact message it is hard to suggest something - consider to capture the console log (by connecting to the serial MP port), save the messages and post.

Hope this helps!

Re: HP-UX 11i Version 2 Installation on HP Itanium

This log is still from your attempt to from from the external USB drive ... consider to configure the console back to the MP serial line and capture all the output.
What do you get when you run this command from EFI shell?

Shell> info warning

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
