Re: boot from external dvd

If you stop the boot process you get this menu:

---- Main Menu ---------------------------------------------------------------

Command Description
------- -----------
BOot [PRI|ALT|] Boot from specified path
PAth [PRI|ALT] [] Display or modify a path
SEArch [DIsplay|IPL] [] Search for boot devices

COnfiguration menu Displays or sets boot values
INformation menu Displays hardware information
SERvice menu Displays service commands

DIsplay Redisplay the current menu
HElp [|] Display help for menu or command
RESET Restart the system
----
Main Menu: Enter command or menu >

Now do a "sea ipl"

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
