I would like to install OpenVMS 8.3 from original Hobbyist CD on an AlphaServer DS10 with QL1410. Target disk is a 36,4 GB Compaq SCA drive connected to QL1410. At beginning of installation phase following message appears:
The following products will be installed to destinations:
CPQ AXPVMS CDSA V2.2-271 DISK$ALPHASYS:[VMS$COMMON.]
DEC AXPVMS DECNET_OSI V8.3 DISK$ALPHASYS:[VMS$COMMON.]

Portion done: 0%
%PCSI-E-CLOSEOUT, error closing DISK$ALPHASYS:[VMS$COMMON.][SYS$KEYMAP.DECW.SYSTEM]FINNISH_LK201LF_DP.DECW$KEYMAP;1 as output
-SYSTEM-F-DATACHECK, write check error
-SYSTEM-W-NOTINTBLSZ, block size is greater than 2048
%PCSI-E-OPFAILED, operation failed
Terminating is strongly recommended. Do you want to terminate? [YES]
Problem is solved now:
- Install Linux on an other harddisk
- overwrite first 100 MByte of OpenVMS target disk with dd id=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1024k count=100
- reboot and boot from OpenVMS CD
- install OpenVMS and hove fun :-)

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?
