Hmm.. I'm not sure if you read what I previously wrote..I can hear you
laughing but I don't think that this is really helpful..
What I've expected was an behavior like that described in the manuals,
the manuals are telling stuff with boot flags that seems to not applicable
W/o any flag I end up at the prompt of a standalone backup
wich is fine for me..
I'm starting the image restore and now I have a problem that the DSSI disks
are "not software enabled".
