Z/VM Partition did not IPLed when DPM mode.

Using DM mode i could not IPL Z/VM 7.2 patition after installation.
This is First level non-SSI installation on SCSI (FBA) devices.

After the following steps based on documenation like z/VM Version 7 Release 2 Installation Guide

1) Log on as MAINT720.
logon maint720
Ready; T=n.nn/n.nn hh:mm:ss

2). If this is a first-level installation, you are done with the RAMDISK.
a. Shut down the new system.
b. Shut down the RAMDISK system.
shutdown system ibmvmram

Due starting Partition i have got the following errors:

ZBL6269010E Partition start failure: Boot Record on device HBA=0.0.0002, WWPN=XXXXXXXXX, LUN=XXXXXXXX does not contain a valid pointer. -> Here when the Boot record block address 0 into Boot options configuration for Partititon
HCPARM6505W IPL from FCP device and PDVOL= was not specified or was not valid -> where 00000000000000C8 based on https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/zvm/7.1?top ... csi-device

I did not find the options Load address into Boot options for PArtition in DPM mode opposite PR/SM. Does it mean the impossible Start z/VM partition when the server into DPM mode.
