Re: RX2620 partition disk for Windows

Don't mix this up!

SmartStart is for Proliant

SmartSetup is for Integrity

I guess you cannot have both (impossible is nothing ;-)), HP-UX and Win on the same disk, but no problem to have it on different disks.

Consider to use HP Integrity virtual machines - so you can have HP-UX and Windows (and Linux) running at the same time.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: RX2620 partition disk for Windows

Thanks all, my problem is only the ISO image filesystem format on downloaded Smart Setup v5.1.

SOLUTION:
Steps to create FAT ISO image.


On HP-UX Itanium systems.


Create and Format an iso image upto 650 megs

# dd if=/dev/zero of=/PATH/image.iso bs=1024k count=650
# efi_fsinit -d /PATH/image.iso

Copy data to the mounted filesystem.
# efi_cp -d /PATH/image.iso -r /usr/lib/efi /
# efi_cp -d /PATH/image.iso /PATH/FILES /
# efi_ls -d /PATH/image.iso

Copy iso image to any system with CD burner and software.

Burn CD using any software that supports burning iso images. (nero etc...)
