tried this in the meantime... the system boots with b/r5:10000000 dua3:
...warnings about cannot map sysdump.dmp on the system disk,
cannot map pagefile.sys on the systemdisk
OpenVMS (TM) .. something..
%WBM-I-WBMINFO Write bitmap has successfuly completed
%sysinit-e --error opening system dump file..
%SYSTEM-I-MOUNTVER, DUA3: has been writer-locked. Mount verification in
and here it hangs, nothings happens. Can't get a prompt ot type anything.
Enough for today.
Thanks in the meantime and good night !
