Booting the O/S from a tape cartridge

Here is how to load the initial O/S from a bootable tape. This is not a full blown O/S but is sufficient to continue loading the complete O/S.

Bold type is user input

  1. Shut down the workstation, put it into service mode, and power it back up. You should end up at the service mode prompt ">". If not, hit the "Return" key a few times. If that still doesn't do it, try depressing the reset button on the back.

  2. CHECK THE BOOT TAPE! This make take an hour but you should make sure that "DOMAIN_OS" exists on the boot tape before you erase your existing disk.

  3. Erase the hard drive by running INVOL from SR10.4 machine or boot the INVOL utility from your cartride tape. Select option 1 to format, when this complets, select option 8 to set the paging file size to the default.

  4. After exiting from INVOL, type "re" and < return> a few times to completely reset the machine, then proceed with booting from cartridge as described below.
