SCO Openserver booting with the install disk
Posted on 2009-04-16
I am a n00b when it comes to SCO. Today I was given the task to fix an SCO Openserver 5 machine (HP Netserver LH4) that will not allow you to log on because the root filesystem is full. I have downloaded the installation media from the SCO website to use as some sort of rescue media. When I boot the machine with the media and use the "tools" option at the command line I can finally get to an <installation> prompt which will let me run commands.
I cannot see the hard drives using this method though. I have tried using
mknod /dev/root b 1 42
but when I try to mount it, I get:
mount: Bad Address
I have downloaded the amird image file from the SCO ftp site but don't know how to use it or if it is even the correct disk... Maybe drivers isn't what I need. Does anybody know?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
