Hi,

AXPVMS $ exit %x44
%SYSTEM-F-BADIMGHDR, bad image header

either the CD has a problem or your CD/DVD drive. Can you create an .ISO copy of your CD and boot from that copy ?

I have loaded 8.3 on FreeAXP about ten times in the past month on a 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate host - lots of playing with configurations.

Worked fine every time.

I did this from an .ISO of the media.

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
