Is there a link or FAQ out there that explains how to install z/VM 5.1
on Hercules from the DVD ? Is there some Hercules device you need to
configure that looks like the HMC DVD drive ? Can the files be copied
from the DVD on the HD and accessed by some virtual Hercules device ?

Perhaps on the IBM site.

After all, you have it licensed to run on Hercules, do you not?

Should you use the mailblocks package and expect a response from me,
you should preauthorize the dissensoftware.com domain.

I very rarely bother responding to challenge/response systems,
especially those from irresponsible companies.

I pre-defined 3390-3 Volumes for 510RES, 510PAG, 510SPL, 510USR, 510W01, and
510W02.

There should be a User Guide that describes the process on the 1st DVD (if I
remember right).

You need to define a Console at 0020. Then define the first DVD as Tape 181
for HERC.

You can then IPL 181 to load the Tape. Use LOADPARM CONS=020. The Tape
image contains

the FMT and DDR images for all the volumes previously defined. It does take
a little time to create

the 3390 images, so be patient. I then used HERC utilities to convert to a
compressed Disk image.

It took a little bit of time to get it going, but was then easy to do.

you can search the archieves but the gist is you CAN NOT install from DVD on hercules
The Media is not the problem when installing VM 5.1+ From DVD, the DVD installs only support
the use of the HMC's Intergrated 3270 Console (SYSG) which is not currently emulated by Hercules.

If you have the TAPE or CDROM media you can install using either the SYSC console or a regular 3270 console

Is the HMC's Integrated 3270 Console interface specifics available to
allow Hercules emulation?

Not that I am aware of.
My understanding is its a function of the OSA ICC they use but I do not believe that it is documented.
