"IPL error: bad LIF magic"
Has anyone else tried to do this and was successful. The workstation I am trying to build from the CD is an HP9000/770 series.
One other thing, Does anyone know where I can get a driver for a HP CD-Writer Plus 9200E for HPUX 10.20?

To solve this problem try running a cleaning tape through the tape drive
and try booting again (see warning below).
If this does not fix the problem, you can check whether the really tape
contains a LIF area using the Ignite/UX command "copy_boot_tape". More
information on the copy_boot_tape command can be can be found in the man
If this does not work then try the attached document.
*** Warning: The tape drive only be cleaned according to the cleaning
instructions applicable to the tape drive. A DDS tape drive should be cleaned
2-3 times in this situation (especially pre DDS3 tape drives). DLT tape
drives should never be cleaned unless the cleaning light is on.

Also, a product for burning CD's on HP-UX is;

Now i can replay.
To check CD :
lifls -l /dev/rdsk/cxtxdx # see man lifls
CD must be recorded using 2048 bytes block. Review ignite docs.
Try to test your original image on disk ussing lifls too ( lifls /cd_image ).
I did it and it runs ok.
