Can someone please help me,I've been struggling with this from last week.


RE: AIX installation/terminal settings

looks like the terminal is working but the install is failing and the system is going to the open firmware prompt, which is normal after an install or boot failure.

what is the machine type, model and firmware level?

you might want to post this on the IBM: AIX forum here for more answers.
