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.
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?
