Then add a virtual RZ SCSI disk to the simh system [although you might not even need to do that - as simh just sees the disk as a linear file of blocks without any geometry].  The trick is to make sure the virtual disk is set up so that you have a working system/booting system on the virtual disk when changing the processor type to match the VAXstation.  Then just DD the image to a real SCSI drive and move it to the VAXstation.

I’m guessing I will at least have to copy the right bootloader and update the fstab, but I’ll copy the disk after installation and then see what happens.
