I have just loaded OpenVMS 8.3 from the hobby kit onto an AlphaStation 200. The install appeared to go fine and I took all of the defaults (it's a long time since I loaded VMS). At the console prompt bootdef_dev is defined as dka0, which is correct. When I boot >>> b dka0 the machine goes through the boot process and then displays as follows:
jump to bootstrap code
System root [SYSA.] does not exist, check bootflags
Halted CPU 0
Halt code 5
HALT instruction executed
PC = 20003Fc4
Warning HWRPB is invalid
If I boot from the installation disk I get the oportunity of executing DCL commands. From here if I mount the system disk I can see all of the directories that I might expect to see. Also the system logicals (eg. sys$common, sys$manager) seem to be fine.'
