That sounds exactly my experience a few weeks ago. I was doing an
upgrade with media I burned myself (V7.7.80).
Working with IBM confirmed that I should have received an "insert next
disk" prompt. Instead it dropped me out to a shell. There was nothing
IBM concluded it was the media. I wasn't so sure.
I ended up doing an "install" with the same media. It did ask me for
the second DVD and completed normally. Since this was an install and
not an upgrade I had to rediscover my servers and redo my HMC profiles.

OK I knew this answer once but it has been a while. During an HMC Upgradeof
using Recovery Media, at the the end of the first DVD, the HMC posts a
question about wanting to install additional software ( I think that is
correct ).there are 2 options It appears that I should press a '1' to
continue and what I expect to see is it eventually tell me to put the
next/#2 DVD in the machine and probably press enter or some such thing.
What I get is nothing on the screen and if I press enter it just repeats
itself. I have tried recently to use the both the 10key #1 and QWERTY #1
with the same results.
What am I supposed to press? this as happended to me at multiple levels
HMCs and with a mix of keyboards
