Hi,

AXPVMS $ exit %x44
%SYSTEM-F-BADIMGHDR, bad image header

either the CD has a problem or your CD/DVD drive. Can you create an .ISO copy of your CD and boot from that copy ?

I have loaded 8.3 on FreeAXP about ten times in the past month on a 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate host - lots of playing with configurations.

Worked fine every time.

I did this from an .ISO of the media.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
