boot disk not showing when try to add as a boot option

After igniting an Integrity hpvm 11.3 image (which looked successful) the hpvm fails to boot as the boot disk is not showing as an option

If I try to add the boot disk it is not present in the available selection. All I can see for booting is the LAN card and the DVD drive.

However, if I go into the EFI shell I can see the disks:-
EFI Shell version 1.10 [14.62]
Device mapping table
fs0 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)/HD(Part1,Sig3B6829DC-810E-11DE-8000-D6217B60E588)
fs1 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)/HD(Part3,Sig3B682AC2-810E-11DE-8000-D6217B60E588)
blk0 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)
blk1 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)/HD(Part1,Sig3B6829DC-810E-11DE-8000-D6217B60E588)
blk2 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)/HD(Part2,Sig3B682A9A-810E-11DE-8000-D6217B60E588)
blk3 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun0,Lun0)/HD(Part3,Sig3B682AC2-810E-11DE-8000-D6217B60E588)
blk4 : Acpi(PNP0A03,0)/Pci(0|0)/Scsi(Pun1,Lun0)


blk0 is the one I want to use as the boot disk.
Also, I tried bringing up the hpux cli from the EFI and that does not work either even when specifying the full path

Shell> hpux
'hpux' not found
Exit status code: Invalid Parameter

Shell> \EFI\HPUX\HPUX
'\EFI\HPUX\HPUX' not found
Exit status code: Invalid Parameter

I'm officially stumped

Re: boot disk not showing when try to add as a boot option

You cannot use the blkx devices for boot.

Try this:

Shell> fs0:

fs0> cd \EFI\HPUX\HPUX

fs0> hpux

Hope this helps!

Re: boot disk not showing when try to add as a boot option

Hi Paul,

Try from EFI,

Shell>fs0:
fs0>cd \EFI\HPUX\
fs0>hpux
hpux>boot vmunix

1)blk0 is the one I want to use as the boot disk.
=>You cannot boot from blkx devices.
2)If I try to add the boot disk it is not present in the available selection.
==>How did you tried.
==>For adding boot entry,either you can do through EFI boot manager or EFI shell.
i)Through EFI Boot manager=> Go Boot option maintenance menu>Add boot option>Selct boot device>Save settings to NVRAM.
ii)Through EFI Shell
=>Go to EFI Shell,
Find out the boot device with map command.
Shell>map
for eg, fs0 is your boot disk,
Shell>fs0:
Find out the boot loader,
fs0>cd \EFI\HPUX\
fs0>ls
Add boot entry,
fs0>bcfg boot add

for rg.
fs0>bcfg boot add 1 hpux.efi primary boot

Now try to boot.
