check your NIM settings and client network settings

the screenshot doesn't help much

find the LED code from the HMC, IVM, or front panel of the client and look it up and see if that tells you anything

You need to provide more details about this issue. Are you installing to an lpar or stand alone machine. What media are you using for the install (mksysb, rte, or lpp_source, etc). There are MANY variables to what could be causing the issue. Is there disk assigned to the machine you are trying to install to? Is there network connectivity between the two?
