Re: not able to boot HPUX

Hi,

try to boot from previous kernel, see:
http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/System-Administration/vmunix-prev/m-p/2804527#M82689

Check if /stand/vmunix exists.

>recover from DVD
Well, this is a new installation then, no recovery like known from win.

Do you have a backup or ignite backup/tape?

If you have the installation media for the version of HP-UX installed you could try the "Recovery Menu" from the Main Installation Menu.  There is an option to try and rebuild/replace the kernel.
