At moment PowerKVM client needs to be shutdown after installation. A manual changes for boot orders in configuration file is needed for booting up SLES 12. The idea is to create GRUB menu which can be handed over from DNS Server to client when it starts up. The GRUB menu should contains normal installation option and entry which is able to boot SLES 12 from hard disk.

      Done! I found the way to define the grub entries for boot ppc64le vm client from hard disk like this:


      menuentry 'local boot sda1 with brtfs ' { insmod gzio insmod part_msdos insmod btrfs set root=(ieee1275/disk,1) echo 'Loading Linux kernel ...' linux /@/boot/vmlinux root=/dev/sda1 ro quiet splash echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...' initrd /@/boot/initrd }


      and


      menuentry 'local boot sda1 with ext3 ' { insmod gzio insmod part_msdos set root=(ieee1275/disk,1) echo 'Loading Linux kernel ...' linux /boot/vmlinux root=/dev/sda1 ro quiet splash echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...' initrd /boot/initrd }
