Unjam bus adapters from potentially locked state (and possibly CPU and other hardware),
>>> unjam
 
Initialize the cpu,
>>> initialize
 
Look for available devices,
>>> show dev
>>> show config
>>> show scsi
 
Define a default boot device (e.g. dka200),
>>> set boot dka200
reset it to null,
>>> set boot .
 
Boot OpenVMS with sysboot (single user mode equivalent),
>>> boot/1 dka200
