Choose the system disk
There are two choices for installation/upgrade: Initialize - Removes all software and data files that were previously on the target disk and installs OpenVMS Alpha. Preserve -- Installs or Upgrades OpenVMS Alpha on the target disk and retains all other contents of the target disk. * Note: You cannot use preserve to install OpenVMS Alpha on a disk on which OpenVMS VAX or any other operating system is installed. Do you want to INITIALIZE or to PRESERVE? [PRESERVE] INITIALIZE You must enter the device name for the target disk on which OpenVMS Alpha will be installed. Enter device name for target disk: (? for choices) DKA0 Enter volume label for target system disk: [ALPHASYS] You have chosen to install OpenVMS Alpha on a new disk. The target system disk, DKA0:, will be initialized. It will be labeled ALPHASYS. Any data currently on the target system disk will be lost. Is this OK? (Yes/No) y Initializing and mounting target....

For the initial installation we do not install network components. They can be added later.
You can install the following products along with the OpenVMS operating system: o DECwindows Motif for OpenVMS Alpha o DECnet-Plus for OpenVMS Alpha o DECnet Phase IV for OpenVMS Alpha o Digital TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS If you want to change your selections, you can do so later in the installation by answering "NO" to the following question: "Do you want the defaults for all product options?" For your system to operate properly, you must set two parameters: SCSNODE and SCSSYSTEMID. SCSNODE can be from 1 to 6 letters or numbers. It must contain at least one letter. If you plan to use DECnet, SCSNODE must be the DECnet Phase IV node name, or the DECnet-Plus (Phase V) node synonym. If you have multiple OpenVMS systems, the SCSNODE on each system must be unique. Enter SCSNODE: vmsemu If you plan to use DECnet, SCSSYSTEMID must be set based on the DECnet Phase IV address. Do you plan to use DECnet (Yes/No) [Yes]: n Please choose an SCSSYSTEMID between 1 and 65535. If you have multiple OpenVMS systems, the SCSSYSTEMID on each system must be unique. Enter SCSSYSTEMID :
