The CentOS 7 ppc64 and ppc64le variants are supposed to be installed on
IBM Power (or compatible boxes, like Tyan or others, from the OpenPower

I didn't know that some dev board could exist that were targeting ppc.
Are those board ppc64 compatible ? What is loaded by default on those ?
Nothing would work "by default" from a CentOS side, but something could
probably be done if you build a RootFS composed with the ppc64/ppc64le
tree (depending on what's compatible with your board) and use uboot to
chainload ?

Can you give more details about the available and running distros for
that board ?
