Re: HP-UX disk image for the 9000-340?
I have never had any problems booting from emulated disks on HPDrive. As for bootp it is usually only used to start up the boot process via a broadcast advertising for a bootp server which would then provide the requester with enough code for basic TCPIP operations to download a more complete boot image. Some network attached devices that would normally not have a console, such as terminal servers, use bootp to get their initial ip setup .toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Rik says that HP-UX does not use bootp but rather uses what sounds like a proprietary protocol for network boot.

The author of HPDrive specifically comments that booting may be a problem because of timing. HPDrive is not able to match the actual HD timing which may effect the less sophisticated "boot" program.
