<< .. A guy on comp.os.vms, Wolfgang Moeller has created a patch for the 
system ROMs. This patch allows booting from SCSI disks as 'DK' type devices 
and perhaps from CDROM also. You need to read your ROMs from OpenVMS , patch 
the images and then burn new ROMs from the images. The utilities for reading 
ROMs and the
patches are available from He did post details on comp.os.vms
so I don't think he'll mind me passing the information on.  >>

I just happen to have a handy VS2000 sitting around not doing anything right 
now, and a handy PROM programmer I can read the PROMs with...  and make new 
ones.  Certainly doesn't make sense to load VMS just to read the PROM when 
you need the programmer to make a new one anyways...

I'll have to check it out...    I also wonder whether his patches will work 
for all PROM revisions??   Been dying to get this VS2k doing something...
