    nimol_config MESSAGE: Processing multivolume 1...
    nimol_config MESSAGE: Please insert volume 2 to continue.
    nimol_config MESSAGE: Enter the source for volume 2 =>


    I see no way to change the mounted volume and no way to press enter to continue the install.



    How can I get the install to complete?

    VIOS comes as DVD image with two ISO-files or USB flash image with one file. Use USB flash image.

    Are you using "installios" command or HMC GUI to perform the operation. If in GUI you will not get option to provide path for the disk 2.
    Also, could you please check when you imported the VIOS Images, you imported 2 ISOs? Ideally installation procedure pulls the second ISO automatically if the iso is in same directory. If it is missing, then it might pop-up this message. Also, what version of HMC you are using? Thanks!
