LPAR Loading Problem

I'm having a major problem trying to load a LPAR.
I've got through the HMC and shutdown and then activated the LPAR and it only gets to the Operator Panel Value of 0517. Now from some research I've found that this is to do with loading the rootvg. ( I think )

On the actual terminal all I get is the mass amount of IBM's and then it tells me the 'Welcome to AIX' Message, but goes no further.

Does anyone have any ideas or ways I could get around this to log in?


Also I've tried doing a MKSYSB install from the NIM Server but nothing happens at all.

VIRT-WHAT(1)						      Virtualization Support						      VIRT-WHAT(1)

NAME
virt-what - detect if we are running in a virtual machine SUMMARY
virt-what [options] DESCRIPTION
"virt-what" is a shell script which can be used to detect if the program is running in a virtual machine. The program prints out a list of "facts" about the virtual machine, derived from heuristics. One fact is printed per line. If nothing is printed and the script exits with code 0 (no error), then it can mean either that the program is running on bare-metal or the program is running inside a type of virtual machine which we don't know about or cannot detect. FACTS
hyperv This is Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor. Status: confirmed by RWMJ ibm_systemz This is an IBM SystemZ (or other S/390) hardware partitioning system. Additional facts listed below may also be printed. ibm_systemz-direct This is Linux running directly on a IBM SystemZ hardware partitioning system. This is expected to be a highly unusual configuration - if you see this result you should treat it with suspicion. Status: not confirmed ibm_systemz-lpar This is Linux running directly on an LPAR on an IBM SystemZ hardware partitioning system. Status: not confirmed ibm_systemz-zvm This is a z/VM guest running in an LPAR on an IBM SystemZ hardware partitioning system. Status: confirmed by RWMJ using a Fedora guest running in z/VM linux_vserver This is printed for backwards compatibility with older virt-what which could not distinguish between a Linux VServer container guest and host. linux_vserver-guest This process is running in a Linux VServer container. Status: contributed by BarXX Metin linux_vserver-host This process is running as the Linux VServer host (VxID 0). Status: contributed by BarXX Metin and Elan Ruusamaee lxc This process is running in a Linux LXC container. Status: contributed by Marc Fournier kvm This guest is running on the KVM hypervisor using hardware acceleration. Note that if the hypervisor is using software acceleration you should not see this, but should see the "qemu" fact instead. Status: confirmed by RWMJ. openvz The guest appears to be running inside an OpenVZ or Virtuozzo container. Status: contributed by Evgeniy Sokolov parallels The guest is running inside Parallels Virtual Platform (Parallels Desktop, Parallels Server). Status: contributed by Justin Clift powervm_lx86 The guest is running inside IBM PowerVM Lx86 Linux/x86 emulator. Status: data originally supplied by Jeffrey Scheel, confimed by Yufang Zhang and RWMJ qemu This is QEMU hypervisor using software emulation. Note that for KVM (hardware accelerated) guests you should not see this. Status: confirmed by RWMJ. uml This is a User-Mode Linux (UML) guest. Status: contributed by Laurent Leonard virt Some sort of virtualization appears to be present, but we are not sure what it is. In some very rare corner cases where we know that virtualization is hard to detect, we will try a timing attack to see if certain machine instructions are running much more slowly than they should be, which would indicate virtualization. In this case, the generic fact "virt" is printed. virtage This is Hitachi Virtualization Manager (HVM) Virtage hardware partitioning system. Status: data supplied by Bhavna Sarathy, not confirmed virtualbox This is a VirtualBox guest. Status: contributed by Laurent Leonard virtualpc The guest appears to be running on Microsoft VirtualPC. Status: not confirmed vmware The guest appears to be running on VMware hypervisor. Status: confirmed by RWMJ xen The guest appears to be running on Xen hypervisor. Status: confirmed by RWMJ xen-dom0 This is the Xen dom0 (privileged domain). Status: confirmed by RWMJ xen-domU This is a Xen domU (paravirtualized guest domain). Status: confirmed by RWMJ xen-hvm This is a Xen guest fully virtualized (HVM). Status: confirmed by RWMJ EXIT STATUS
Programs that use or wrap "virt-what" should check that the exit status is 0 before they attempt to parse the output of the command. A non-zero exit status indicates some error, for example, an unrecognized command line argument. If the exit status is non-zero then the output "facts" (if any were printed) cannot be guaranteed and should be ignored. The exit status does not have anything to do with whether the program is running on baremetal or under virtualization, nor with whether "virt-what" managed detection "correctly" (which is basically unknowable given the large variety of virtualization systems out there and that some systems deliberately emulate others). RUNNING VIRT-WHAT FROM OTHER PROGRAMS "virt-what" is designed so that you can easily run it from other programs or wrap it up in a library. Your program should check the exit status (see the section above). Some programming languages (notably Python: issue 1652) erroneously mask the "SIGPIPE" signal and do not restore it when executing subprocesses. "virt-what" is a shell script and some shell commands do not work correctly when you do this. You may see warnings from "virt-what" similar to this: echo: write error: Broken pipe The solution is to set the "SIGPIPE" signal handler back to "SIG_DFL" before running "virt-what". IMPORTANT NOTE
Most of the time, using this program is the wrong thing to do. Instead you should detect the specific features you actually want to use. (As an example, if you wanted to issue Xen hypervisor commands you would look for the "/proc/xen/privcmd" file). However people keep asking for this, so we provide it. There are a few legitimate uses: Bug reporting tool If you think that virtualization could affect how your program runs, then you might use "virt-what" to report this in a bug reporting tool. Status display and monitoring tools You might include this information in status and monitoring programs. System tuning (sometimes) You might use this program to tune an operating system so it runs better as a virtual machine of a particular hypervisor. However if installing paravirtualized drivers, it's better to check for the specific features your drivers need (eg. for the presence of PCI devices). SEE ALSO
