Automatic installation on power8 partitions via NIM server

Hi ,

I want to install suse 12 sp1 via the NIM server to power8 lpars so that it will also skip the sms menu inputs as well as the suse questions like partitions , timezone .

So what all steps have to follow , what files need to be placed in the tftpboot folder of nim server to initiate the installation with autoyast file .

I have found a link , but it is for suse11 and talks about some yaboot configuration file .

But I think in suse12 , there is no yaboot file concept is there .

Any input regarding this issue is much appreciated .
