Boot and stop at petitboot

Depending on how you configured your POWER8 petitboot, you might want it to skip the kernel selection and boot on the default kernel.

If your default kernel is having any issue, and you want to re-select it, or, just drop at Petitboot for some other management changes, you can ask IPMI to stops at petitboot, and do not load the default kernel.

In order to do so, you should use the following ipmi command:

ipmitool -H   Host  -I lanplus  -U USER -P PASSWORD chassis bootdev bios
