It all depends on how the BP places the order.
Current release is 7.2 (on Power 8).
Are you going to restore the entire system including OS from the current
system ?
Last machine I ordered was installed in May, and came with DVD (because I
told BP I wanted them(we were in a new building and wasn't sure internet
pipe would be "up").
System was not preloaded. We loaded 7.1 which matched current Power 5 (it
takes us months to test a new release).

Subject: New Server Shipped From IBM with HMC ordered

Would anyone know what versions would ship with the system, would they be
preloaded with the 8.1.0 or would it all come un-installed. Do they ship it
with DVD's to get it current or are they counting on internet access to do
all this.
