I seem to recall that 6.2 was the last version to support the uVAX-I. You
would need to check the 6.2 SPD. The current OpenVMS SPD can be found
on-line http://www.compaq.com/info/sp2501/sp2501pf.pdf and it confirms that
6.2 was the last version that supported uVAX-I.

Now, just because 7.x doesn't support it, doesn't mean it may not work,
there are lots of things that aren't supported that work. Typically this is
due to OpenVMS engineering not having the resources (time or hardware) to
do the verification. However, in the case of the uVAX-I I'd worry that 7.x
doesn't work at all. The only way to find out is to try to install 7.x and
see how far you get....
