I am messing with FreeAXP to see if I can virtualize my existing Alpha 1000 and am having a bit of trouble getting the initial system loaded. I have been working with VMS for 30+ years so I am pretty familiar with image backups and setting up systems.
The issue I am having is that the target windows system doesn't have a CD/DVD drive and I only have TCPIP/FTP access between it and the Alpha. So I need to get a copy of the VMS Installation CD from the Alpha to some sort of container in the FreeAXP system so that I can boot standalone backup and restore the system disk.
I also have a similar question as to how best to get my image backup of the system disk to the FreeAXP system.

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.
