    Allow the cd/dvd the Lame.
    Take the console with MM.
    Boot on CD/DVD VIO and install it. Don't change any options.
    After the installation configure the IP adress (mirror rootvg !) and continu with the IVM web browser interface.
    Sorry for my english :(

    There are three methods, you can use any one according to your suitability
    DVD, via the HMC (using the installios command) and via Network Installation Manager (NIM)

    If you share some steps to install PowerVM on blade7,it will help for me.

      The first question you have to answer is whether you are using IVM or SDMC to manage the blades. What you need to do is different for those cases. The next question is which installation method you want to use.

      This describes how to do it on Power Systems: IBM PowerVM Getting Started Guide. It does not explicitly cover blades, but most of the steps are the same. If you are using IVM, then you access the console through SOL (Serial Over LAN). If you are using DVD to install, you have to assign the BladeCenter's media tray to your blade using the button on the blade or AMM.

    Hi,

    To use SDMC, the blade firmware needs to be 01AA730 or later
