A VIOS can be installed using NIM, however, specific steps need to be taken when setting up the VIOS NIM environment: You can now use bos_inst to perform a mksysb install once the partition profile is defined, as explained here.

A good strategy for updates starts with updating the Hardware Management Console (HMC), then the firmware, the VIOS and the LPARs.
