So it turns out IBM changed the policy on those agreements, they only sell them in China and a couple of other small geographies, none in ours.

Just found that out last week.

I am getting nowhere with IBM on this PRPQ. Any chance you have a couple of pointers on how to get this done? The HWMA folks recommended I contact PPA after I turned down their $9300 offer. The PPA folks basically said "We don't know what you are asking for. We help with software downloads but here is an article on how to download the firmware".

Before heading deeper into the IBM support vortex, maybe you can point me to where you started....

You will need to request a PRPQ for the firmware support only, IBM will
only sell one year at a time on that. It's a royal, class A, major PITA to
get done.
