Re: Yaboot install problem - IBM 911-285

Hello Mark,

a while ago I succeeded in installing Debian 6.0.3 (ppc64) on an IBM
Power740 via the netinstall image.
During the setup process it was necessary to update the yaboot
bootloader and manually change its configuration.
Once installed however it runs stable and fast, very fast actually.

You can find the instructions here:
Maybe they can be adopted to your system.
Good luck!

I can setup and install Debian just fine, but when I hit the yaboot install stage it fails and reports no partition of type Apple_Bootstrap found. I used guided partitioning on one disk and a 7.3MB PReP partition is present and flagged as Bootable (B).
