Possibility to emulate pSeries/System p hardware to be able to boot AIX.
Not really sure what's missing.
Could be someting in the RTAS-part of the device-tree.

This probably won't happen for a few reasons:
1. AIX isn't open source
2. I don't have a copy
3. New drivers would have to be written to emulate expected hardware for AIX
I'll take patches :)

Please re-open if you have a patch or would like to donate a copy so I can work on it.

Dang, this is tricky since I dont really "own" a private copy of AIX.
Going through the hassle of leagaly owning a copy to donate is over my horizont.
Both in money and in time.
I do own an old 7006-c10. And in those old days; a machine came with a software-license.
But that would be AIX 3 ... no chrp in sight here.
Do You have any clue why mol won't boot AIX's nice ELF-image? Is it the elusive device-tree that is "incomplete"? Have You seen how SIMOS/PPC handles the AIX-64 4.3-boot?
Can I run tests, and send You debug-outputs, or would this be to much a slow process?
I have no idea as to why it's not booting, but most likely, MOL doesn't present hardware that AIX expects. I honestly can't tell you since I don't have a copy or a way to try it. I can answer questions if you want to try to fix it, but I won't be able to help much more than that without a copy.
