Has anyone seen this problem?
Installed minimal boot on a non-system disk. Installation went as expected (I've done this a number of times on V7.2X/7.3X systems without issue).
When I went to boot from the "alternate" boot disk, I received the following at the console:
>>>> b -fl e,0 dkb600
> System will be reset prior to boot.

Since I am a hobbyist, I can't report this through "formal" channels.
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.
