Installing Using Hyperterm

If you are using Window's HyperTerm to do your OS install (because your HP is insisting that the console device is the serial port), make sure that your HyperTerm is not set to vt100 when you begin. Set it to something else (like ansi) and then wait for it to ask you what terminal type you are using. At that point, set it to vt100, and inform the installer that is what you are using.

If you don't do this, the auto-detection string that the installer uses to see what kind of terminal you have will blow you straight through into Recovery mode. And you can't do installations in Recovery mode.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
