Partitions

Will it be possible to run Windows in one partition and HPUX in another at the same time with the Itanium chip?

Re: Partitions

supposedly, but don't bet the bank on it, plus it sure would be one expensive M$ partition! It's cheaper to get an intel server for M$.

Re: Partitions

Probably, assuming you could get the necessary hardware drivers, but why would you want to do such a thing?
If it's Microsoft you want, the Intel servers are so much cheaper.

Re: Partitions

Yes. The (not yet released) Itanium2 versions of systems that support nPartitions (i.e., cell based systems such as the rp7410, rp8400, and Superdome) will be able to run HP-UX, Linux, and Windows at the same time in different hard partitions.

here's a link to a marketing doc describing this:
