Re: Error in Simh

Nadeem,

are you trying to boot the VAXELN V4.6 CD as described in your recent entry in the Stromasys User Forum:

http://forum.stromasys.com/userforum/index.php?t=msg&th=32&start=0

Does this version of VAXELN support the VAX system emulated by simh or CHARON-VAX ?

Re: Error in Simh

Please migrate your simh question to the simh mailing list; that's the location where you'll most likely acquire the assistance with this that you're looking for.

The simh FAQ and mailing list subscription instructions are here:

When you post your question to the simh list, you'll want to...

Post your full INI file.

You'll also want to describe exactly how the binary disk image was created; there are many ways to do that, and various wrong ways.

What are you booting? Some version of VMS? Or something else?

That this is Windows, or some other simh platform.

And if it is VAX ELN, those images can be built with all manner of specific configuration and specific hardware requirements.

CHARON-VAX/XM now emulates a VAXstation 4000-90:

If you want a "older" VAX, CHARON-VAX can also emulate a MicroVAX II and other fairly-ancient models.

If you're running VAXeln and are wedded to specific hardware, you might be disappointed in any emulator...
