See:

Note - you may want to upgrade your OS - as 11.0 is no longer supported after the end of this year....

Re: How do I install an HP-UX server?

Hi,

To install HP-UX from an ignite/UX tape :
- boot the system
- interupt the booting process
- search the available boot device (the command should be 'search' or 'sea')
- boot from the tape drive with the ignite/ux tape inside
- let the system boot from the ignite/ux tape, you can interupt also the process if you want to adjust the file system size of your system. Otherwise the process will restore the OS as same as the one when the backup taken.

Hope this information can help you.

Cheers,
AW

Excerpt from Ignite Guide:
To install a system recovery from an archive tape:
Step 1. Mount the system recovery tape on the tape drive.
Step 2. Boot the system.
Step 3. Interrupt the boot sequence to redirect it to the tape drive by pressing
Esc.
Step 4. Cancel the non-interactive installation by pressing any key when given
the opportunity.
Step 5. Allow the install process to complete.

Also find attached ignite UX guide for further details.
