white paper on PDC,BCH, LIF, ISL,hpux

I am trying to get an idea of the booting steps of an hp-ux 9000 server
for eg how these components interact and what steps happen in the booting procedure
basically function of PDC,BCH,LIF,ISL,hpux etc
the lower level routines before the kernel is loaded

I couldnt find much description in docs.hp.com documents

I am a solaris person.its quite straightforward in solaris-just bootblk,ufsboot or inetboot.thats all.but hp-ux is more complicated


Can anyone suggest a reading or white paper on this

Hi, martin,

THE hp-ux reference for booting (pdc, isl, etc) can be found at this location :
www.itrc.com, on the left : HP products, knowledge tree, HP-UX Software Recovery Handbook, choose the chapter 2 : Chapter 02 - System Boot and you will see that all is explained !!!

Olivier.
They say "install windows 2k, xp or better", so i install unix !

Thanks Oliver and Robert for the reply

unfortunately I dont have a support contract.This is just for my personal hp machine at home.
I know I am asking too much,but if someone could send me that doc from knowledge tree which Oliver mentioned,that would be phenomenal
