I looked in the FAQ, and could not find an answer to this question (the FAQ is normally your friend):

<http://www.hp.com/go/openvms/faq>

The SPD says:

64MB minimum

I say:

put in the maximum your hardware will allow, for best responsiveness. :-)

To agree with Brad....

I think that 64Meg is the minimum and 128 is recommended.

My little old DEC 3000 certainly boots Alpha OpenVMS fine on 64 meg.

I think that VAXes will boot with much less.

However, regardless of platform, to agree with Brad again, performance
will be improved by having more than the minimum. Precisely how much
improvement you get will depend on the applications you are running
and thus the memory management strategies that you adopt.

Good Luck anyway - Russell

You need more memory. The good news is that those Alphastations use standard PC SIMM memory, which is relatively cheap. However, you MUST get true-parity SIMM's or else it will not work.

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
