Has anybody tried to install, boot, and test successfully on a POWER9 powernv

If so, could I get and advice on which Debian installer (ISO, initrd, and
vmlinuz) I should use please?

I have not tried one, but I would expect the ppc64le to work on it since
it is meant for power8+.  I unfortunately have not had a chance to play
with anything newer than power7.

Sorry, I wrote my note super hastily and forgot to mention that I was wondering
about BE specifically. Currently I see kernel 4.16 is used by the installer and
I get a panic regarding a VMX Unavailable Exception on POWER9 powernv (both
baremetal / OPAL and qemu emulated), so I'm wondering if anybody else is
catching that panic too etc. I know BE support for PPC64 was dropped officially
by I understand buildd builders are still building it so there are fresh
packages out there.

Thanks for replying and for the comments!
