If that means the console display showed "Install Licensed
Internl Code" and you picked:
1. Install Licensed Internal Code
then got to the Install Licensed Internal Code (LIC) screen
Disk selected to write the Licensed Internal Code to:
Serial Number Type Model I/O Bus Controller
xx-xxxxxxx xxxx xxx x
Select one of the following:
2. Install Licensed Internal Code and Initialize
Is this where you got to? Did you get an SRC on the HMC
for LPAR status?
