As Others have said, It Depends. It sounds to me though like you were
thinking about the HMC rather than the Power System since you mentioned
Unlike Cisco where gear is often in warehouses for months before it
ships to customers, IBM loads them just prior to shipping them which
means they are very current both version and fix levels when you get them.
If you ordered a Power8 and you're getting a new HMC with it, then I
would expect it will show up with 8.1.0 on it but I have not yet seen
this combination ordered so I could be wrong. My customers have had
existing HMCs to this point.

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.
