Not able to install HP-UX

Hi,

We have rx7640. One of the partitions we tried to boot with Windows ( Smart Start DVD) and we didnt install windows.

Now we try in install HP_UX and we get error

"HPUX may have been booted with non-default (windows) ACPI firmware mode This is not allowed. So resetting the system "

How to reset to default firmware mode, so that we could install HP-UX.

Thanks,
Karthik

Re: Not able to install HP-UX

Hi Karthik,

Have a look at the below link.

http://docstore.mik.ua/manuals/hp-ux/en/5991-1247B/ch01s04.html

acpiqconfig â This is a command to list and configure the nPartition ACPI configuration setting, which determines whether HP-UX, OpenVMS, Windows, or Linux can boot on the nPartition

Ex: To boot HP-UX 11i v2 (B.11.23), HP-UX 11i v3 (B.11.31), or HP OpenVMS I64, the ACPI configuration setting must be set to default.

Ex: To boot Windows Server 2003, the ACPI configuration setting for the nPartition must be set to windows.

Refer to the below link if you are facing issues while installtion of HPUX on NPARS

Shalom,

You should take a look at the EFI interface and set up a partition for installation of HP-UX
