yes! you are right Stan!

The reply is the same - you do not seem to have the correct ISO configured.

 

Also you should not be using 'scsi' but 'aviostor' to configure the devices - 'scsi' is VIO and it's no longer

supported in versions above V4.3.

you are booting from the disk and not from dvd. obviously there is some HP-UX installation in there, but it doesn't match your configuration - you said you want to install the system, so fixing this is unrelated to the task you want to do, I assume...
