Question about SGI Silicon Graphics Silicon Graphics Octane R10000 (WT5-1P195SI4) PC Desktop
I have a SGI 320 is it possible to load or upgrade to WINXP from WIN2KPRO?
I have an SGI Octane. Can I run Windows XP Pro on it?I would like to use Solidworks and catia on this hardware. I have been told that It is very good for design work. Though it is dated it apearently still has some use out of it. I am just trying to find out if I can run Windows XP Pro or even 2000. Thanks for your help.
This is an old Boeing Surplus Machine.
Model #: cmnb015anf250
No Hard Drive. Picking up original 18 GB HD for it. soon.
I got this from wiki
The 320 and 540 Visual Workstations shipped originally with Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. Due to the ARCloader PROM, a custom Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for Windows was necessary. Windows 2000was the last release which included the required SGI-specific HAL.Because of that, and because SGI ceased supporting the VisualWorkstation series, installation of future Windows versions such as XPis unsupported.
So it doesnt support xp. if u use windows 2000 it might just work. Its hardware design makes it not xp compatible.
