Re: HPUX Boot issue

This looks good.

Now do

 

EFI> fs0:

EFI> cd EFI

...

and run the hpux boot loader.


Hope this helps!

Re: HPUX Boot issue

Let us see if you are able to boot in any mode using fs0:  like boot -lm etc

If not, suspect a disk issue and do not see any other boot disk.

Re: HPUX Boot issue

That looks like a disk issue. Could confirm by booting from a OS DVD or ignite  and check from recovery shell.
