mvme5500 manual :
Page 3-7 "diskBoot" command.
"diskBoot Disk Boot (Direct-Access Mass-Storage Device)"

I think that After I changed Time keeper , mvme flash reset.
I have to set boot device so I hink that I should use "diskBoot" command.
Device table pics:

How can I adjust boot device by "diskBoot" command.
There is ide hdd on the board.
When I connect the board via Com Port(Console cable) Hyper Terminal . I see MVME 5500 command line.

I have to adjust boot device . My board hdd \boot files is:
Page 3-35
tis sample:
diskBootboots the specified file from the specified device.
diskBoot [-a] [-e] [-f] [-h] [-p] [-v]
-a Ph: Boot File Load Address (Default=Dynamic/User Download Buffer)
-e Ph: Boot File Execution Address Offset (Default = 0)
-f Ps: Boot File Path (Format = Device-Name[\Partition[\\File-Name]])
-h 0: Do Not Execute Loaded File
-p Ps: PReP Boot Device Type List (Format Example = Floppy/CDROM/Disk)
-v 0 : Verbose Mode
The following example indicates a typical display when using the
diskBoot command.
MOTLoad> diskBoot -f/dev/fd0[\l[\\boot.bin]]
---the above method can also be accomplished by defining a GEV
variable as follows---
MOTLoad> gevEdit mot-boot-path
(Blank line terminates input.)

How can I autoboot from hdd ?

My hdd boot files : and My hdd has 7 parts. my boot directory is in first partition.

Thanks for Advance.
