Re: rx7640 mca error

it's better to open support request and send them a log (
I suspect firmware incompatibility, but it's better to ask HP's support.

Re: rx7640 mca error

I see from the boot menu that this system also has had a Windows 2003 installation on it.

There is a command you need to run if you change the system between HP-UX and Windows.

Try this command from the EFI shell:

'acpiconfig default'

then type 'reset' and try to boot from the HP-UX install CD again.
See also here:

Remember if you want to switch back to your Windows OS, then you need to run 'acpiconfig windows' first.

Re: rx7640 mca error

Is that a permanent fix?

You did get an MCA error - may be your should check the latest files in /var/t ombstones, and may be contact HP if it occurs again...

Hardware errors cant be ""fixed" by SW, IMHO...

....also be so kind to assign points if ppl were helpful at all :-)
