SLES 12 SP1 installation on ppc64le may fail showing "No Repository Found" messages on the console.
This document (7018093) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
During SLES 12 SP1 installation, pass on the kernel command line boot parameter : "squash=0".
Following the installation, it is no longer a requirement to pass on the "squash=0" command line boot parameter when booting the system.
This has been resolved in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 Service Pack 2 (SLES 12 SP2).
In the linuxrc.log the error message: "mount: mksquashfs failed" will be observed.
