Strange boot messages/prompt VMS 9.2-2 KVM/QEMU

Post by cct » Tue Feb 27, 2024 2:47 pm

Just upgraded a 9.2-1 system to VMS9.2-2 under KVM/QEMU QEMU version - QEMU 6.2.0 on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
After installing TCPIP V6.0-24 when I boot I see:

Code: Select all

BOOTMGR> B
Booting...

%VMS_BOOTMGR-I-ACPI,    No HPET (Clock). Using fallback clock source.


%VMS_BOOTMGR-I-HWRPB,   Unable to determine System Serial Number

Boot Flag HALT requested before transfer to SYSBOOT.
>>> Enter 'R' to Reset, 'E' to Exit, any other key to continue:
If I try R it just returns to the same prompt, but if I just hit the Any key, it seems to boot fine

What goes?

BOOTMGR> NOHALT

The other messages are just informational.

My mistake, the NOHALT command is not in 9.2-2.
To clear the HALT boot flag:

BOOTMGR> FL 0

Then restore whatever boot flags you intend to use.
