Hi

I would like to install OSX Server onto a Dell Poweredge server. I would be happy installing either Lion or Snow Leopard and had planned on using a copy of RebelEFI which I still have.

From my research, I think it will work and run smoothly, however I was just hoping someone would be able to confirm this for me.

I am looking at using any of;

- Dell PowerEdge 2650 Dual Xeon 3.2Ghz HT 8GB RAM Server
- Dell PowerEdge 850 Dual Core 3.0Ghz 4GB 1U SATA Server
- Dell 2650 Dual Xeon 3.2Ghz HT 8GB RAM Server 146GB RAID

If someone could confirm compatibility with any of these, I would much appreciate it.

Thanks in advanced,

Sam Heather

Why not just try it out?

I've tried installing server on a dell power edge r610 but got KP's about HPET.

Need an existing installation to sort out the DSDT, it might also bitch about the RAID controllers, it being SAS.

Don't use rebel efi
1) It has not been updated in a long time
2) It's a commercial sulotion

Instead use nawcoms mod cd, myhack or empire efi
