BL460 G6 and Windows 2000 support

Mohammed had a customer operating system issue:

 

*******************

 

Hi All,

 

I have a customer inquiring about installing windows 2000 on a bl 460 g6 server, is that supported?

 

He is getting a blue screen whenever he is trying to install the OS on the server.

 

Thanks in advance

Mohammed,

 

            No, no Windows 2000 drivers were offered.  Windows 2000 drivers were offered for the BL480c G1 but not the BL460c G1 or later.  The latest Windows 2000 drivers were released in 2006.  I would pretty much expect a blue screen when using old drivers with modern firmware.
