Performing a slip install of the LIC with a new respin, then applying all
the PTFs would be my first choice.

Then again, if this is a new partition, and if I read that right, there are
very few LPs, I'd try to just load the PTFs, after getting all the mandatory
PTFs installed. Should be reasonably quick. That said, the slip install is
easily the safest and quickest method in my view.

Subject: Will I blow out the link loader?

What are the chances that I blow out the link loader if I load V7R3 PTF
package 19311 (TR7) over respin D
(I_BASE_01_Licensed_Machine_Code_RS_730-D_LCD8_2287_03) of V7R3?

I created a new partition using the above respin so the only PTFs currently
on the system are 5770-999 RE17277, 5770-SS1 SI59410, and 5770-XE1 SI36916.

Obviously, I'm concerned that I'm too far behind to load 19311 - what other
options might I have? Download the latest respin and install over the
current LICPGMs?
