Terminal User Interface (TUI) screen summarizes the information found by an
initial scan of your target hardware.

  • Tab to "H/W Details" and press Enter to get a detailed scan of your hardware. (You can also do the same thing by pressing D — see the next NOTE).
    <IMG height=5 src="/hpux/hp/installation/pixel.gif" width=1>
  • Tab to "Install HP-UX" and press Enter to continue with configuring the installation. <BR clear=left>
  • Tab to "Run a Recovery Shell" to manually run HP-UX commands, for example, in order to recover a system that has crashed. From the interactive shell, the /sbin/loadfile command can be used to load commands that you may need to recover the system. This function is for advanced users only. <BR clear=left>
  • Tab to "Advanced Options" to get version information and to make changes in process controls.

Tips for using the TUI (character) interface :
  • If you prefer to use the keyboard to manipulate the Install interface, you can do so by typing the underlined letter of an item (such as "<B>I</B>" for <B>I</B>nstall HP-UX).

  • For general screen help, choose the Help button at the bottom of each screen. For context-sensitive help, press <FONT face="helvetica, arial" size=2>f1 or <FONT face="helvetica, arial" size=2>Ctrl-<FONT face="helvetica, arial" size=2>f.

 User Interface and Media Options

 This screen lets you pick from options that will determine if an
 Ignite-UX server is used, and your user interface preference.

 Source Location Options :
 [ * ] Media only installation
 [ ] Media with Network enabled (allows use of SD depots)
 [ ] Ignite-UX server based installation

 User Interface Options :
 [ * ] Guided Installation (recommended for basic installs)
 [ ] Advanced Installation (recommended for disk and filesystem management)
 [ ] Remote graphical interface running on the Ignite-UX server

 Hint : If you need to make LVM size changes, or want to set the
 final networking parameters during the install, you will
 need to use the Advanced mode (or remote graphical interface).

 [ OK ] [ Cancel ] [ Help ]



  • Select the Source-Location of installation, by typing an "*" in the box.

  • Select among the User Interface options to designate where you intend to control the installation from. A Remote graphical interface assumes that you have an Ignite-UX server configured and available.
    If you only wish to access an SD depot over the network, then you should choose Media with Network enabled.... You will then be able to specify the SD depot later during the media install.

    The third selection requiring a network server be configured and

      Select Guided Installation. This has the following characteristics :
        Instructions for each procedure.
        "Mainstream" configuration.
        Default disk layout (e.g., no detailed LVM formatting).

Network Information


(You will not see this screen if you are doing a media-only installation).

You can enter networking information on this screen. When you have entered
the needed information, tab to size=2>OK and press size=2>Enter.

Guided Installation<A

<IMG height=5

If you selected the Guided
Installation from the User Interface Options menu, you will be using the Task
Wizard illustrated here. The Task Wizard is intended to provide help for a
first-time user of Ignite-UX by providing on-screen explanation and a limited
number of steps to accomplish a basic installation.

Note that the Task Wizard is available only on a client-managed (standalone)
installation, and is presented in character-mode (TUI).

name=taskwizard>In TUI mode, you will be able
to use the keyboard to navigate. Press size=2>Ctrl-K

for detailed keyboard help at any time.

HP-family terminals display function key labels (also called softkey labels)
at the bottom of the window. These labels vary depending on the type of window
being displayed, but the functions of
are consistent :

       Key            Meaning
       f1             Help on Context
       f2             Alt  (a modifier key)
       f3             Select/Unselect
       f4            Menubar on/off

To navigate in a typical TUI screen,
you will be doing the following :

  1. Highlight the field you want, using Tab, if necessary.
  2. Press Enter to open a list in a selector field.
  3. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight a selection.
  4. Press Enter again to select the item.
  5. Tab to the next field.
    • You may also have to take some action, such as select <FONT face="helvetica, arial" size=2>OK or <FONT face="helvetica, arial" size=2>Modify in order to activate your selection. You can use the local help for the screen (<FONT face="helvetica, arial" size=2>f1 or <FONT face="helvetica, arial" size=2>Help) to get specific information.

    • As a shortcut to specifying an action, you can type the underlined letter of an item (such as "C" for <B>C</B>ancel) to activate the item without highlighting it.

If you want to leave the Task Wizard mode at any time, select the <FONT
face="helvetica, arial" size=2>Cancel button, or press <FONT
face="helvetica, arial" size=2>C. You will have the choices

configuration or to add hardware, for example, in which case you can restart
Ignite-UX in advanced mode in this screen.
