Hi,

I’m trying to install the CentOS netboot install on ppc64le platform but automation installation(kickstart) fails with the following error:

Starting installer, one moment…
find_file: stat /proc/device-tree/chosen/bootpath, No such file or
directory
anaconda 21.48.22.56-1 for CentOS AltArch 7 started.
* installation log files are stored in /tmp during the installation
* shell is available on TTY2
* when reporting a bug add logs from /tmp as separate text/plain
attachments

The installation was stopped due to incomplete spokes detected while
running in non-interactive cmdline mode. Since there cannot be any
questions in cmdline mode, edit your kickstart file and retry
installation.
The exact error message is:

The following mandatory spokes are not completed:
Installation Destination.

The installer will now terminate.

[root@llmtul01b qemu]#

And kickstart file looks like:

url –url=”http://mirror.CentOS.org/altarch/7/os/ppc64le/”
install

rootpw –lock –iscrypted locked
timezone –isUtc –nontp UTC

# Repositories to use
repo –name=”CentOS”

## Uncomment for rolling builds
repo –name=”Updates”
–baseurl=http://mirror.CentOS.org/altarch/7/updates/ppc64le/ –cost0

# Disk setup
zerombr
clearpart –all –initlabel
part / –fstype ext4 –size000

Looking for the option to select the installation destination through kickstart file.

Thanks, Manjunath.
