The order of hard drives is determined by the BCV list.  There is only

something other than the first item on the BCV list, but that
functionality is currently only available via the boot menu.

This is the bit that confused me. Does an IPL entry for the hard disk result in each BCV device being booted in order of BCV priority or is there a means to have multiple IPL entries? IOW, how would we support a boot order of first hard disk, second hard disk, then CD-ROM?
