Re: no disks are detected on a 735/99
I had that same kind of thing with my 715/50 except that the scsi.6 disk
(with HP-UX installed on it) was read-only and therefore I couldn't
partition it with cfdisk. I could re-install HP-UX any time on it, though.
I think I remember that I once had a tape somewhere with diagnostic software
that allowed you to boot (the tape) and could then turn off read-only on the
disk devices, but it's long gone. If that's not it, I don't have a clue.
