We had a very similar issue on the exact same upgrade 2 weeks ago. The M25 evidently does not ship with this key, our reseller had to contact support to get it. From what the reseller said, Support was surprised that it was not there, maybe there was some issue in manufacturing about the time our respective boxes were coming off the line. We were lucky, the technician spotted it while the system was still being set up. IBM did provide the key without charge and it installed easily. However, the M25 needed a full IPL to regain full communication with the HMC.
Hope that helps.

Subject: The managed system does not support shared processor pools.
Upgraded 520 to M25. Working on an issue now when we try to tag I/O or
adjust the memory. Getting message "The managed system does not support
shared processor pools."
One google hit. And, it points to:
One statement of concern:
(Some IBM® eServer™ p5, IBM System p5™, and IBM eServer OpenPower™ server
models might require you to enter an activation code before you can create
logical partitions that use shared processors.)
How do I find this activation code, and, where do I enter it?
