Though the VMS I64 version has learned to boot via BOOTP in a PXE environment for adding satellites to a cluster, the network installation feature of OpenVMS is still restricted to booting from an Infoserver (these days, that's a software running on another OpenVMS system; see the Upgrade and Installation Manual).
Integrity systems can be provisioned from a System Insight Manager (SIM) server. I believe that network installation uses the vMedia feature provided by recent EFIs, and so is restricted to Integrity only.
malmberg December 12 2017 HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
