Then talk with the Directorate. The have already decided that it is necessary to destroy The Brotherhood of Steel.

Detailed walkthrough

When you teleport to the Institute, you must talk to Father. He will give you the task of going to Diamond City to boost the range of Diamond City Radio. Once you get to Diamond City, head over to Travis's shack where he broadcasts from. When you enter his shack, look on the ground for a box of radio things to his transmitter gear. Place the gear in the right spot (radio things with the buttons goes on the left, things with dials goes in the center, and the things with the tubes goes on the right). After that is done, return to the Institute and go to Father, who is waiting in the reactor room where he will prompt you to put in the Beryllium Agitator that you acquired from the previous mission into the reactor. When you place that in the reactor, you must activate it using the terminal near it. The door to the reactor will close and you will have to talk to Father, after which he will ask you to attend a board meeting as the director. There you will discuss the future plans of the Institute. You will discovr that the Direcorate already haave m,ade the decision to destroyt the Bortherhood of Steel. If you argue for a solution that avoids conflict, it will be rejected because The Brotherhood of Steel already started it by invading the Commonwealth with their troops and airships. You have to decide whether the Intitue shhall focus on further development of synths or weapons (need to be clarified how that decision affects gameplay). When the meeting concludes this quiest completes and the quest End of the Line starts automatically.
