HP-UX "for 700s" on an 800 possible?

Unread postby SAQ » Sun May 15, 2016 10:13 pm

Any way to get a 10.20 "for 700s" disk to install on an 800? Long shot, but I wasn't sure if it was "not supported - we don't guarantee it will work" or if it's "doesn't have critical support files for the HPPB" type of not-supported.

It is unlikely to work, as the 700-only media lacks important drivers for 800-specific hardware.

I know for sure that the reverse (trying to install a 700 with 800 media) does not work.

Typical. Have a G70, which will run 11.0 and some releases of 11i (unsupported, but I've had it running them) - but my B1000 will run either of those faster and quieter.All the 9.x and 10.20 releases I have seen have been for 700s.

The hpmuseum.net site has software for the 800 series. The only catch is that you will need to contact them in order to actually download anything.

It's my understanding that they're authorized by HP to distribute the software (so I don't think I'm violating the forum rules by pointing you to them) but you'll need to prove to the museum that you have the corresponding hardware to get access to that software.
