The Power InfoCenter states the following about this error:

Code:
B1A38B24

B1A38B24
Explanation
An invalid network configuration was entered by the user.

I found a couple forums that mentioned that a B1A38B24 indicated
an invalid network config as well

What I don;t quite understand is that I did not get a chance to
enter network configuration data.

I did not get a change to put in the second installation disk
(DVD 2 of 2).

Do you have any idea how I can go about resolving this error ?

HMC network

I think its just miss connection between the HMC and the LPAR,

just try to continue the installation, and you should get the login console,

if not, maybe you'll need to update you machine firmware for aix 7 support.

you can use the FLRT tool from IBM to determine what firmware your machine will need.
