VAX 4000-105A, 128MB memory, SCSI disk RZ26,RZ28
After installation of 1.6 the system doesnot boot from disk. This is what happens:
>>> boot dka100
The system hangs here
It can netboot, using the 1.5.3 mopboot file. I checked the contents of the disk, it looks OK to me. I am afraid the 4000-105A doesn't like the
Install it on a 4000-105a or a 3100-95 and watch it.
There may be a fix, I extracted this from the vax-port mailing list:
But I know the problem and the solution to it. ;-)
The VAX4k100 / MV3100m9x does some things a bit different than
other VAXen of that type when it comes to booting. Unfortunately
I don't have enough knowledge about this internas to describe it
Hugh Graham from OpenBSD posted a mail about this some time ago:
I applied the patches from that mail to my source (-current
of that time) and now my MV3100m95 can boot from its own SCSI
disk. (See: http://mail-index.netbsd.org/port-vax/2002/07/01/0000.html)
