Any peaceful way to resolve Brotherhood of Steel? *spoilers*

I am doing Mr. House's method for the Hoover Dam, and I am on part IV, where you have to eliminate the Brotherhood of Steel. Is there any peaceful way to resolve this, like for the Boomers? If there is could you tell what I have to do really generally, decisions wise so as to not spoil anything. I'd prefer no spoilers over telling me what I have to do with a bit of spoilers, thanks!

The only possible way to keep the BoS alive is to ally them with the NCR or tell Yes Man to ignore them. If you are going House's route you must destroy them.

With house you have to take them out, no way to change his mind.

You have to do the same sometimes with the NCR also. I ask to resolve it peacefully and the NCR CO told me hell no basically.

Wait... siding with the NCR allows you to keep them alive sometimes?

When I did my NCR missions, the CO told me exactly what the above poster said "Hell no."...

It really irritated me that 3 of the 4 endings required me to kill the Brotherhood...
Go on, give it a try!

You need to have a high enough speech

Actually 2 of the 4 endings force you to kill the Brotherhood:
- You can obtain a Mojave-only truce between the NCR and the BoS if you're on good terms with McNamara. In the end slide they protect the highway in exchange for the retrofitted NCR power armor.
- You can also ignore the Brotherhood if you choose Yes Man, but they're jerks in your ending slides and harass travelers on the road.

You can only form the NCR/BoS alliance if you didn't support the coup against the sitting BoS leader.

If you followed the quest line to overthrow him you're stuck having to destroy them.
