Netware 6.0 on a PowerEdge 2850

Is installing Netware 6.0 on a PE 2850 possible? I've heard that it will
not work at all. It get's to the "Loading..." screen then loops from there.

Dell Gold Support said they are unaware of a customer that got it to work.

Another post (for a separate topic) mentioned letting it loop over and
over for a very long time and it then may finish the install.

Did you try the latest overlay CD? Downloadable from support.novell.com

It is only supported for NW5.1 and NW6.5. You could try the Nw6 overlay cd
with SP5 but I have my doubts.

Cheers,

Netware 6.0 on a PowerEdge 2850

I had the same issues installing NetWare 6.0 SP3 on a PE 2800. SP5
overlay CD worked fine on the install with my server.
