Server Installation was failed by the error "BOOT_INIT_OTHR_PATH_FAILED"

Hi All,

 

I started to install the server by using HPUX - DVD in the server model 11.11.

 

But Installation was failed by showing the error.

 

And the Error is

 

Main Menu: Enter command or menu > boot p0
Interact with IPL (Y, N, or Cancel)?> N

Booting...
Failed to initialize with ENTRY_INIT Status = -7


fffffff9 1 0 0

0 1b 51 20
3 51 20 3
.... FAILED.

 

I checked the System Log, it showed the message as like,

 

# Location|Alert| Encoded Field | Data Field | Keyword / Timestamp
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
696 SFW 0 *3 0x60800FE300E03150 FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF BOOT_INIT_OTHR_PATH_FAILED
12 Aug 2010 02:19:54

 

I know, there is a problem either in DVD Drive or DVD.

 

Please tell me, which one i need to look into

 

Kind Regards,

AVIS

Timestamp is 2010? However, what server model? What is the date pronted on install DVD? Did you do a "search ipl" before booting p0? p0 probably points to a disk, not the DVD.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
