Looks like a rp7420/rp8420 in boot console handler.

Next step is loading the OS loader (ISL) from the primary boot disk, then booting the kernel and finally loading hp-ux.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

If you interrupt at this stage you will be able to interact with the BCH which was traditionally also called as the PDC prompt. However, you will be at the BCH prompt only if you interrupt the 10 second grace period. This option has been given primarily to provide what is called as the manual boot where you can even search for bootable devices.
