rx5670 EFI Boot Manager

Good Morning,

I have a memory upgrade on rx5670.

First, I shut it down, took out the memory board and add memory. Finally try to boot it up

The system cannot boot up at EFI level and i lost the boot disk device path at EFI level.

Does any body know how to create back the boot disk device path ? so the system can boot up using it.

I have successfully create it back and finally boot the system up, but I have forgotten now. Am I right using the EDIT command ?

Thanks and have a nice day!!!

Best Regards
Christopher

Re: rx5670 EFI Boot Manager

hi,

so your system is booted and up and running ??? and you need to make the boot enty in efi shell ??

idf the system is up :

dmesg |grep -i boot

you will get the HW path of your boot disk

setboot -p HP_PATH

setboot -v

Re: rx5670 EFI Boot Manager

Hi Good Morning,

My HP rx5670 is running HPUX 11.22. The System can not be booted up as the boot disk device path has lost at EFI level and I am staying at EFI level now.

I have to create back the boot disk device path at EFI level in order for the system to be booted up to O/S level.

Does anybody know the command and steps at EFI level for creating back the boot disk device path in order for booting up to O/S level ?

Thanks for your fast response.

Have a nice day!!!

Re: rx5670 EFI Boot Manager

rom EFI shell do

Shell> fs0:

fs0> cd efi/hpux

fs0> hpux.efi

This will start the boot. Once bootet, set the path with "setboot" (see "man setboot").

Hope this helps!

Re: rx5670 EFI Boot Manager

Hi Torsten,

Thanks for your solution and I believe it will work too.

By the way, I have tried before using the a command ( should be EDIT ) e.g edit 0/1/0/1/0/0.0.0
create back the boot device file at EFI level and boot from it. It will boot direct to O/S level. As the boot device file was lost after uninstall the memory main board.

Do you know the steps to create back the boot device file at EFI level ?

Anyway, I will try your solution at my client server.

Thanks and have a nice day!!!

Re: rx5670 EFI Boot Manager

You can use the menu entry "add boot device" or something like this, but I prefer "setboot" from hp-ux.

Hope this helps!

Re: rx5670 EFI Boot Manager

Hi,

You can add the boot device either EFI shell or HP-UX level

1) EFI level
=============
==>There are two ways in EFI level

i) Through EFI boot manager.
==>Go to "Boot option maintenance menu"
>Add boot option
>Select boot device
>Enter boot description
>Save settings to NVRAM

ii) Through EFI Shell.
==>
>Find out the boot device with map command.
Shell>map
for eg, suppose "fs0" is your boot disk,
>Enter in to boot disk by typing fs0:
Shell>fs0:

>Find out the OS loader, <<==hpux.efi is the OS loader for HP-UX
fs0>cd \EFI\HPUX\
fs0>ls <<===Here it will display the boot loader
>Add boot entry,
fs0>bcfg boot add

for eg.
fs0:\EFI\HPUX\>bcfg boot add 1 hpux.efi primary boot

2) HPUX level
==================
==>
>Findout the Boot device Hardware path,
#dmesg|grep -i boot device
>Set the boot device,
#setboot -p
>verfiy with #setboot

For eg.
#dmesg|grep -i boot
Boot device's HP-UX HW path is: 0/1/1/0.1.0
#setboot -p 0/1/1/0.1.0
#setboot
Primary bootpath : 0/1/1/0.1.0
