Re: DL380 G5 windows 7 professional installation

You can virtualize Win7, or any VMWARE workstation supported OS on the DL380 G5. You need to install Windows server 2003 R2, then install VMWARE workstation Ver. 11, then install Win7 as a virtual machine. This is a very good solution due to the DL380 G5 natively supporting VMWARE virtualization, so there should be no incompatability drama with VMWARE.

 

Partially solved....

Re: DL380 G5 windows 7 professional installation

Sorry my bad,

in my last reply I mentioned MS 2003 R2. It was a typo....

It should of been MS Server 2008 R2 SP1. That version will run VMWARE v11.xx workstation

MS server 2003 will run vmware v10.xx workstation and under.

All vmware workstation versions listed above will run Win 7 x64.
