disk labels and partitions for IBM Power to boot
I have partitioned my boot disk in a IBM Power 740 Express with cfdisk
(msdos disk labels) to have a PReP bootpartition first and a Linux
partition behind it. The system doesn't recognize this disk as a boot
disk, although I have activated it.
Some questions do arise:
- Can I use PC disklabels on the boot disk?
- Is it correct to write yaboot to the PReP boot partition with no
- Does yaboot support ext4 for the Linux partition?
- What do I have to do that IBM SMS recognizes my disk as a bootable media?
Thank you for your help!
