how to make duplicate of hp-ux media

I have a hp-ux workstation and a legal copy of hp-ux 11.00.00 OS media
I want to make a copy of this and keep it secure as a safe copy in case my master copy get scratched or something
I make a normal CD copy in windows using roxio cd creator and the CD directories and files look okay
but when I boot in hp workstation I get exec failed message and thats it ,it doesnt go any further

Re: how to make duplicate of hp-ux media

the problem can be that your old CD-ROM drive in workstation can't read CD-R media.
Check, if you can mount your copy of CD media

that possibly could be a reson?
I will check if I can mount the cd

do you know what kind of Cd media could be read on old Cd drives
my hp workstation is B1000-700 series
is there a CD+R media or something

Re: how to make duplicate of hp-ux media

I've seen several users who had sucess making backup copies of legal HP CD's on a PC using Nero ... in "clone" mode.

I'm not familiar with Roxio ...
if you're "building" a CD with it, I can well suspect that it's doing something
different than what HP-UX wants. Does it
have a "clone" mode/command you can use?

Although I've never had to try this, you
should be able to determine if your new CD is truly an exact copy of the original
CD by doing a "dd" (on HP-UX) from the original CD to a disk file, and a "dd"
from the new CD, and then
seeing if they differ ("diff").
