Re: Itanium 9000 booting process

These two are really different:

HP9000 (RISC based) vs. Integrity (Itanium II).

You have an Integrity rx6600 (Itanium II).

You power on, the system does selftest, reaches boot menu, read configured boot path, loads the initial boot loader (hpux.efi), this loads the kernel, then the OS.

Hope this helps!
