AIX Debug Install

If an installation or migration fails, you can run the install in “debug” mode. Boot from the CD as normal, select the console and language. Then type “911”. The screen should silently refresh without saying anything about an invalid selection. Now continue the install as normal. The output of the scripts the install process runs with show up on the screen. It’s sometimes a lot of data, but you can often see what’s wrong with the install this way.
