zx2000 not booting



I have a Workstation zx2000 which is not entering the EFI boot menu, so I'm not able to boot it...  Any help / suggestions welcome.


On power up, the diagnostic LED go through their flickering pattern, the screen comes on and displays

EFI version 1.10 [14.60]

EFI64 Running on Intel(R) Itanium Processor Family

EFI 1.10 IPF zx6000/rx2600/zx2000 1.22 [Mon Oct  7 16:41:11 2002] - HP




POSSE Library version  0.10 is loading...

    CellularPlatform = FALSE (use "setcell" to toggel)

Loading 'FPSWA'...

Loading 'lsi1030'...

Loading 'sigundi'...




And that's as far as it gets other than a scan of the SCSI bus.


The system LED is flashing green.


I've tried connecting a terminal to the Serial port, but got nothing through that route - I'm not going to rule out the possibility that the settings were previously changed, nor that I've not configured HyperTerm right...


Any suggestions/help welcome.


Thanks in advance

Re: zx2000 not booting

Looks like we've got this fixed... but don't ask me why this "solution" has worked...


We inserted HPUX install media in the DVD drive and rebooted.  It then worked.
