Installation of Tru 64 unix 5.1b

I m trying to install 5.1b on Alpha DS-15 and getting an error which is as follows "Panic (CPU 0): platform is not supported by this kernel configuration". One thing I also have NHD7 cd but dont know how I can use on booting time for new kernel.

You must boot with help of NDH 7 CD.
Read release notes about details.
It would be something like:
>>> boot -fl fa -fi "GENERIC" dqa0
Then you swap disks as prompted.

Have you done with the OS Installation or still facing the problem.

If instaled then boot with genvmunix if not then boot using CD and also you need to rebuild the kernel as some configuration doesn't seems to be okie.

Khalid,

First time install as normal, with all the cd swaps. When your install is 100% completed you will have a "working" DS15 kernel.

Create a new 5.1B Install cdrom and add this saved DS15 kernel to it, with a name easy to remember name, like: "ds15vmunix"

Start the installation with ">>> boot -file ds15vmunix dqa0"

During installation the install process will try to generate a new kernel (which will not work on the DS15, until NHD7 is installed)

Until you install NHD7 you will have to copy the "ds15vmunix" from your install cd onto your installation disk (dsk0) than reboot again with the "ds15vmunix" from your installation disk. And the installation process will continue.

Its not pretty, but beats the 20+ cd swaps normally needed.

Do you have any other OS on it?
