I have an AlphaStation 500/333, running OpenVMS 7.2-2 which has been running fine for several years. I recently had to replace the power supply. The new PS works fine, but now my boot disk won't boot (failed to open dka200...). All other SCSI disks appear to be connecting fine, and I've tried every possible SCSI iteration, including disconnecting everything but the boot disk. Nothing seems to help, so I am assuming that dka200 was collateral damage when the power supply went bad. If there is something that I could be missing, please let me know. The disk was running fine up until the time when the power supply went bad (zero error count).
I have ordered a replacement drive, but of course I will have to re-install the OS. Problem is, I no longer have access to the OpenVMS 7.2-2 install CD. Does anyone know of a source for such a thing? Any other pertinent advice would be much appreciated, as I've never installed OpenVMS from scratch.
