failed.  Unless you created your own stateless image for capturing and 
provisioning images, then xCAT will be unable to capture an image from a Power 

Did you use the steps here:


for modifying xCAT to be able to capture/deploy images?  If so, the stateless 
images linked to off of that page are for x86 hardware.  You will need to 
create your own stateless or statelite images for Power blades.
