Okay so i recently bought that server and i cant install any Linux distro i know.
I tried Ubuntu,Fedora x64 and x32,debian.Ubuntu boots from the cd and the installation starts though it wont detect my 4 SCSI hard drives.
Fedora cd booted once and then crashed. Then when i tried to boot it again it showed me 3 boot sectors on the cd and none of the was actually bootable. Lastly debian cd booted and the graphical install got stuck on 3 duplicated and enlarged logos of debian.
I left it for an hour and nothing happened.
What can i do?
Or is there any other better distro?
IBM eServer xSeries 365 Linux Installation
As you are unable to install Ubuntu, Fedora x64 and x32 and debian, i suggest you to try other software's.
For your IBM eServer xSeries 365, you can try the following software's:
1. SUSE Linux enterprise server. You can get it here > https://www.suse.com/.
The support for this Linux distro is great. See the screenshot below:
2. Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
You can get it here > www.redhat.com/products/enterprise-linux/. See the screenshot below:
The above Linux distro are the best for IBM eServer xSeries.
IBM also has many support features for SUSE Linux enterprise server. So try SUSE Linux first.
If it doesn't work then try Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
