Summary0015737: Cannot boot ISO using Disk on Key
DescriptionTrying to boot the latest CentOS on old IBM X3550 M3 servers shows an error (for 2 seconds)

Failed to set MokListRT: Invalid Parameter
Something has gone seriously wrong: import_mok_state() failed:
Invalid Parameter

And then the machine powers off.
Steps To ReproduceUse any tool (Rufus) to install the ISO to a Disk on key, and boot an IBM M3 server. When the USB storage boots starts, it shows the message and it powers off the machine.
Additional InformationThere is a so called "solution" which involved copying a file to the GRUB partition, see here: but I'm not sure this will help with the ISO installation.

The only workaround to this problem is to use the IMM (the IBM's IPMI) to mount remotely the ISO as a virtual DVD and select "Classic Mode" to boot - and then it works.
Tagsboot, IBM, M3
