After installing VMS on my PWS 433 I did a $show cpu/full and found no serial number on the processor. So... I generated a key OS key with PWS433AU "NONE". No worky. Gen'ed with PWS433a "NONE". No worky. Finally flipped the thing over and got a serial number. Gen'ed with PWS433a,au and serial. No worky. I cut and paste so its no typo. Gen'ed as Unlisted workstation. No worky. The message:

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?
