Re: boot from dat

You interupt the boot process, and enter the 'SEArch' command. From memory, it will display somelike like:

P0 10/12/0.6 Random Access Media
P1 10/12/0.5 Random Access Media
...
...
P7 8/12/0.0 Sequential Access Media

The sequential access media devices are the tape drives found (P7). You can then
BOOT P7
or
BOOT 8/12/0.0
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: boot from dat

Hi

older machines from before CD's became a standard component often have the secondary boot device set to the tape device in which case interrupt the boot and type

bo alt


cheers

Re: boot from dat

Hi,

Interrupt the boot sequence and search for the bootable devices using sea.

Boot from the Sequential Access Media

bo P3 ( example)

sometimes bo alt also works.
If you have set your alternate boot path to Dat drive.
