You do not need to copy the bits out of the DVD to install them.
If you have the ISO mounted, you can use swinstall interactively and scroll through the DVD contents and select the HPVM software when you find it.
If you need to copy it off of the DVD image, you can use swcopy to do that.

# swinstall -s /cdrom
Hope this helps!
There are only 10 types of people in the world -
those who understand binary, and those who don't.

>I use virtual drive to read my ISO image
You mean , you do it the windows way ? Using the ilo to launch virtual drive and then selecting the iso image from your local laptop drive ?
Their is also the hp-ux way.
downloading and installing from software.hp.com the ISO "mount" software, ISOIMAGE-ENH
And then below output is from a old itrc thread, precursor to this forum, written by VK2COT, which I will shamelessly use, and that explains how to configure/use the ISO "mount" software.
c) Available in HP-UX 11.31 0909: ISOIMAGE-ENH.
Provides a new DLKM module fspd. Required to
mount, read and umount the ISO image file.
The commands mount(1M), mount_cdfs(1M), umount(1M), and the mount_cdfs(1M) can be used.
After the installation of the ISOIMAGE-ENH
bundle, the module fspd needs to be loaded
(DLKM module) to enable the NCF.
To load the module:
# kcmodule fspd=loaded
To unload the module:
# kcmodule fspd=unused
And here is how it works very simply:
# mkdir /iso
# mount RHEL-5.1-IA64-CD1.iso /iso
mount: absolute path name is required for
# mount /var/adm/crash/RHEL-5.1-IA64-CD1.iso /iso
and then once mounted.. use make_depots/manage_index/make_config to create a ignite network depot from the core-os software on a ignite dedicated server. And then use that ignite network depot on the ignite server, to install the software with swinstall on the server that needs it.
something like this..
ignite # /opt/ignite/bin/make_depots -r B.11.31 -d sept2012 -s /dvd1
ignite # /opt/ignite/bin/make_depots -r B.11.31 -d sept2012 -s /dvd2
ignite # manage_index -n "HP-UX B.11.31 Default" -
ignite # mkdir -p /var/opt/ignite/data/Rel_B.11.31/sept2012
ignite # make_config -r B.11.31 -s sept2012/core
ignite # vi /var/opt/ignite/data/INDEX
[do still some stuff]
serverthatneedsthesoftware # swinstall -s ignite:/var/opt/ignite/depots/Rel_B.11.31/sept2012

It would have been better to just provide a URL of the topic:
