Alpaha DS25 not responding

hello
my alpha ds25 crashed shows the message "init command is respawning too rapidely check for possible errors "
and stop there
i have not access to the >>> or # cli and can not enter any command
after the boot process initiated i got a message like this "ccb request completed with an error
error exception or abnormal condition
MEDIUM ERROR unrecoverable medium error "
it clearly confirm a loss of one hard disk drive but i can't gain access any more to the machine.
I want to re install the tru 64 platform
so how can i boot from CD and perform the installation

Re: Alpaha DS25 not responding

you mean to say u can not access or do not have access to >>> prompt,
You may have to hardboot it and jump to >>> prompt to check if there is any hardware fault, do not rush to reinstall (only if you have to)

Re: Alpaha DS25 not responding

Hi,
Easy way to install Tru64 on an alpha is to use a graphics term - I'm guessing you are using a serial which = pain!
Hook up a graphics term set console variable
>>> set console g
>>> init
You need init for it to take effect and then install away.
Ser back to serial when you have completed install:
>>> set console s
>>> init
Mark...
if you have nothing useful to say, say nothing...
