I've got an VAX4000/300 eqipped with an TK70, 2x RF31, 1xRF71 disks,
and an CQD-200/TM.
I've connected an toshiba Xm5701 drive to the SCSI Bus and the machine sses
it as DUA3. I have a VMS7.3 CDROM and want to install it on one of the
I've read some documents on HPs website but it isn't clear to me
how to boot the cdrom correctly, there is root 1 mentioned.
What bootflag must entered, B/R5:10000000? the case w/o the R5:10000000 I get a $ Promt finally (here I habe to
read further). With the bootflag the System is complaining that dua3 is
write protected (it is the cdrom)...

What's the correct way to install VMS on that machine?
