ENTRY_INIT failed status 4 on B2600

Hi all,

I have a b2600 workstation running HPUX 10.20.
I am currently encountering booting failure.
Error as below:

Interact with IPL (Y, N, Q)?> Y

Booting...
ENTRY_INIT failed, status = -4; Unrecoverable hardware error

0x0000 fffffffc 00000001 00000000 00000000

0x0070 00000002 00000003 00000031 00000000

failed to initialize.

CPU 0
NOTICE: Processor self-tests have been disabled because is FASTBOOT enabled. To enable self-tests, disable FASTBOOT with the FASTBOOT command in CONFIGURATION menu and reboot the system.

Anyone knows what is wrong?

I have tried booting from both primary and alternate disk but still not getting any result.

Re: ENTRY_INIT failed status 4 on B2600

hi,

well it looks like your system cannot find the boot devices at the pri or alt paths?

is that what you did?

MA>boot pri

it could be something simple like the boot paths are just set wrong to start with?

rather than boot pri or alt try a search from the BCH

MA>sea

see what this returns? or sea bo for searching for bootable devices.

of course it could also mean the disk has died. was it working? did it crash? or why did you reboot it?

In my case, I have B2600 machine with firmware version 1.3. When I boot it through CDdrive it shows similar message i.e.

 

ENTRY_INIT failed, status = -4: unrecoverable hardware error.

 

I used three to four different CD drives and different CD disk of HP10.20 ACE5 also but the result came out was same. Is there anyone who encountered with such problem and got the solution?

 

I briefly mention the steps I followed.

>sea

>bo ide

Interact with IPL? > n

 

Booting... (and just after this I get the error)
