Re install HP-UX 11iv1 from DVD


I try to install an HP-UX 11iv1 (from September 2006 Media Kit) on a HP-UX 3410.

It doesn'y works because the install menu is AUTOMATICALLY skiped ! Therefore, I can not access the classic installation menu.

How can I fix this ?

This is log from serial port after choosing DVD ROM for booting device :

Re: Re install HP-UX 11iv1 from DVD

This is always a problem with terminal emulation (hyperterminal)?

Try putty instead.

Hope this helps!
