This chapter introduces nPartition system boot and reset
concepts, configuration options, and procedures for booting and resetting
This chapter covers boot details for HP-UX, HP OpenVMS
I64, Microsoft® Windows® Server 2003, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and the SuSE
Linux Enterprise Server operating systems.
Differences in the nPartition boot process on PA-RISC systems
and Intel® Itanium®-based systems also are addressed in this chapter.
CAUTION: An nPartition on an HP Integrity server cannot boot HP-UX
virtual partitions when in nPars boot mode.
Likewise, an nPartition on an HP Integrity server cannot boot an operating
system outside of a virtual partition when in vPars boot
