Re: installing netware 5.1

if you havent solved your problem yet, you should use the ideata driver that came with the motherboard, their driver was designed for that motherboard where as the one from novell is a generic and may not be compatable whith the chipset on your motherboard.
if there isnt a novell ide driver on the motherboard cd try the motherboard manfacturer's web site.
if they dont have one the motherboard might not be compatable with novell.
you can research the chipset on your motherboard and using that you might be able to find a driver thru someplace like driverguide.
good luck.

I bought a Power Edge 1800 from a business that closed. Can I install WinXP (Pro) as the OS or do I need something specific for this computer?

you should be able to install WinXP on the server platform with no problems. I have several servers and have installed many different operating systems on them, even Linux.

I have an Ml 110 G5 Server, But i could not find the VGA driver for the Win Xp , kindly assist thanks Justin

Hi, I m really sorry to say that but you have a Server Product and its built to run Windows Server Series on it (or Linux / Novell Netware).
This is the list of compatible Server list
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Microsoft Windows Server 2003 for 64-bit Extended Systems Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Essential Business Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Foundation Edition Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Small Business Microsoft Windows Server 2008 W32 Microsoft Windows Server 2008 x64 Novell NetWare 6.5 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (AMD64/EM64T) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 (x86) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server (x86) Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Server (x86-64) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (AMD64/EM64T) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 (x86) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (AMD64/EM64T) SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (x86)
Here is the link for Drivers
Try to use the Driver for Windows 2003.
It has a Matrox VGA as I know. If you know which Matrox series you have, then Browse here for the Drives: Matrox Graphics Support. Make sure that you choose the Exact Driver software which suites the System.
Note: Not every product has the Driver Software for Windows XP.
Please rate the answer! Thanks for contacting Fixya!

yes you can do that but you need the drivers for the scsi interface. when you install windows xp (for example) i think you may have to press the f6 key on the installation to add these drivers.

Otherwise, installation wont take place.

Valid operating systems fro Power Edge 1800

During the Windows XP setup you will need to provide the RAID driver using a pre-formated floppy disk.
Windows will ask you if you want to provide additional drivers and give you the key combination to use to do that.
