I have an RS/6000 Model G30 running AIX 4.1.3. The CPU is having
problems that prevents us from booting into maintenance mode, but we can
come up in normal mode. We have the Power PC 604 processor upgrade, but
haven't installed it yet. We have the AIX 4.1.4 on bootable media, but
not all of the patches required for the 604 processor are on it. Is it
possible to install the processor upgrade and boot the machine off of
the CD-ROM (without all the required patches) and proceed from there?
Oh, and please don't suggest a bootable mksysb or bos tape since my tape
drive is eating tapes these days....
Thanks in advance.
