As I am trying to install Fedora 23 on our PPC64LE server. I am running into an issue with install. It has to be noted that Fedora 22/21 fail with similar errors on this configuration:
Any pointers on narrowing this issue down would be greatly appreciated.
To give details on the box:
A) Stoarage: Avago RAID controller 9361-8i (with 15 solid state drives on RAID0 config) Firmware version we used is 4.300.00-4429.
B) Network: Mellanox Connectx 3 pro card in the box.
Here are the details. Install log is attached:

I can add details here as necessary.
