I also have a similar question as to how best to get my image backup of the system disk to the FreeAXP system.

malmberg August 17 2016 The hobbyist license does not restrict you to a version of VMS for non-commercial use. For commercial use, HPE has programs for pre-sale testing of products.
VMS 8.4 is the current release.
