Re: installing sco Openserver 5.0.7 on DL380G5

thank you Karlo,

When trying to install SCO OS 5.0.7 on an DL380 G5 using the intergrated SmartArray disk contorler (hpsas) I get the following message once the installing is completed and booted for the first time:
i press enter at boot time and this messaghe comes up;

hd(40)unix swap=hd(41) dump=hd(41) root=hd(42) hd=(Sdsk)
unix not found

According to SCO, i am using the EFS 5.77 and also tried with 5.72 and 5.74, but with the same response once i have installed the O.S.

of course i amd using Boot Loadable driver hpsas.

the command string i use when installing the O.S and booting for the first time is

defbootstr link=hpsas hd=Sdsk Sdsk=hpsas(0,0,0,0= Srom=wd(0,0,0)

this is according to the instalation notes of the EFS 5.77

i am quiet desperate, i am doing the basic thins for instalation and is not working.

Have someone installed the OS 5.0.7 on this proliant DL380G5 before?
