hi,

looks like got problem with VM host primary disk. If the primary boot disk is OK, press Enter now and you should get HPUX prompt.

HPUX > boot vmunix -is

If this does not work, try to go EFI shell and list out available disks.
Shell> map

If the disk is spoilt, replace it and restore from make_tape_recovery.

Bonjour,

You should first try to boot manually, from EFI Shell. With map "command" analyze storage. Any FS0, FS1, ... ? For each FSx, try :

FSx:
cd EFI
cd HPUX
HPUX

If you can boot like this, modify EFI boot menu from HP-UX with command "setboot -p ...."

If you can't boot manually, you should check your virtual disk from Host. What kind of virtual disk do you have ? Raw device, logical volume, file ? Depending on this, use standard commands to check availability. For example LVM commands like lvdisplay to check a LV virtual disk.

I must leave office. Will check this thread tomorrow.

Thank you very much to help.
What happened with boot disk in virtual machine, by mistake it is initialized from veritas command from host. I opened case with hp and veritas and worked with them and then knew this happened.

once again, Thanks to all of you to help me.
