Should not be a problem as I've dont it here.

The better way is to start from a working system with a drive that is
(for use in the target vax) and invoking VMSbuild to create a copy of VMS
on the target disk. Then that target disk can be booted and proceed as
if it was a regular VMSinstall. We used this trick years ago to put VMS
on RD54s to install on new microvaxen (MV-II) faster than using TK50
ot MOP.
