OpenVMS on the Whitebox Windows-Only series Alpha?

0

Though OpenVMS is not supported on the “Whitebox” series of Alpha platforms, OpenVMS might or might not bootstrap on the platform. These systems were specifically configured, targeted and supported only for use with the Microsoft Windows NT operating system. On some of the “Whitebox” systems, the following sequence of console commands can potentially be used to convert the system over to unsupported use by and for OpenVMS Hobbyist users. (But please note that if you wish to attempt this, you must ensure that all graphics and all I/O controllers in the system are supported by OpenVMS, and you must ensure that you have the most current SRM firmware loaded. (For information on locating and downloading the most current Alpha SRM firmware, please see Section 14.3.7.1.) And you must realize that the resulting Whitebox configuration will be entirely unsupported and may or may not be stable and useful.) set os_type vms cat nvram ! too see what is in this, if anything edit nvram 10 set srm_boot
