Installing OpenVMS

Hi! Which flags should I use to boot 7.2's installation CD on an Alphastation?

Hi Jose,

No flags needed, but do specify the device.

>>> boot dqa0

if dqa0 is the name of your CD player.

Re: Installing OpenVMS

The installation guide could be helpful:


If your system has particularly weird default
flags, you might specify "-flags 0,0", but the
CDs are arranged to tolerate many weird
default flag settings.
