How to Modify KernelPrompt ?

ISL booting hpux KernelPrompt "Choose Operating System to Install :" 120 1
1. target OS is B.11.00
2. target OS is B.11.11
3. target OS is B.11.23 PA
4. Exit
To change options/timing.
It appears to be kept in boot_lif if you do a strings on this file.

Re: How to Modify KernelPrompt ?

The only text file in there is the AUTO file.

You can see what is in the AUTO file via

lifcp boot_lif:AUTO -

which will copy it to stdout. I wouldn't recommend you do that with HPUX or ISL though, as they ary binaries and will probably screw up your terminal.

If the prompt isn't in the AUTO file, you need to look elsewhere, as you won't be able to edit the binaries HPUX and ISL.

I did look at lifcp but missed the obvious.
Have now modified the menu - thanks.
