Title: Ignite installation CD image for Agilent 16702B
Post by: mian2zi3 on August 01, 2015, 03:02:11 pm
I recently picked up a 16702B.  I also picked up a SCSI2SD to replace the mechanical hard drive.  I'm looking for an Ignite installation CD (or image that can be used to create a bootable CD) to reinstall on the flash drive.  Can anyone help?  Thanks!

I found this on the HP/Agilent Test Equipment Yahoo group:

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/hp_agilent_equipment/conversations/topics/69520 (https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/hp_agilent_equipment/conversations/topics/69520)

There is an image available from Keysight, but it doesn't appear to be bootable.  Also, there no /X11/X11-RUN-CTRB as expected by these instructions to unlock HPUX:

http://www.perdrix.co.uk/hp16700/ (http://www.perdrix.co.uk/hp16700/)

so it might not be the right thing anyway.

CD can be ordered directly from HP/Agilent homepage. You need to search a little bit for that page, but it exists :)
Then simply insert CD into drive, make the LA boot from CD and follow the instructions.

Thanks!  This page has the information:

http://www.keysight.com/main/editorial.jspx?cc=US&lc=eng&ckey=375133&nid=-11143.0.00&id=375133 (http://www.keysight.com/main/editorial.jspx?cc=US&lc=eng&ckey=375133&nid=-11143.0.00&id=375133)

Unfortunately, the order link (to agilent.com) isn't working anymore!  I emailed them, will update when I know more.

You have PM

sorry to (slightly) necro-post, but I am in the same spot.  Could I please get a PM with a link to the Reignite CD-ROM image?  I posted about this on the Keysight forums and they provided me this link: ftp://ftp.keysight.com/cos/outbound/16700/16700_A0290.iso

But, it doesn't appear to be the correct CD image.

Thanks in advance!

Hi.
I am soon going to be in the same position.
I need the link too.

I have two .iso files, the line linked above, 16700_A0290.iso (which I didn't use) and HP16702-LA.iso, which worked to reinstall my 16702b.  They have identical contents, but the .iso files themselves are different sizes (and maybe boot sectors?)  Here is a link to HP16702-LA.iso:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/cb6t5ewczmxxnwe/HP16702-LA.iso?dl=0 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/cb6t5ewczmxxnwe/HP16702-LA.iso?dl=0)

Keysight replied to my inquiry, but they don't send out CDs anymore since the 16702b is no longer supported.

I replaced the SCSI hard drive with a SCSI2SD broad:

https://www.itead.cc/scsi2sd.html (https://www.itead.cc/scsi2sd.html)

It worked like a charm, the boot time is faster, and it is MUCH quieter.

In case that dropbox link ever goes down, a known-good (I used it to reignite my 16700B) ISO is available at https://archive.org/details/B37601424316700A.02.90.00 (https://archive.org/details/B37601424316700A.02.90.00).
