Booting system backup from the product media

Complete the following steps when the Welcome screen is displayed:

  1. Choose the Start Maintenance Mode for System Recovery option.
  2. Choose the Install from a System Backup option.
  3. Choose the drive containing the backup tape.

    The system reads the tape and begins the installation.

  4. Do not remove the disk from the media drive.

    The system installs the kernel and device support required on the target system from the disk.

  5. Return to step 9 in the Installing a System Backup on the Source Machine procedure and continue the instructions for installing the backup.
    Note: The Use Maps option is not supported in Maintenance Mode. For more information on the maps options in Maintenance Mode, refer to Installing a system backup on the source machine.
