Thanks Thomas, looks like Openbios has an xcoff-loader package, I would need to port this to SLOF. That should get me to loading bootx.

The next stage would be loading the kernel and such from the files system, so I’d have to port the hfs/hfs+ packages to SLOF or bootx also supports ext2 file systems.

That would get me to the point of a kernel panic, likely, as there are no “platform drivers” for the IBM pSeries machines in OS X.
