I've been informed that what would have been my companies new server of choice, the IBM x3500 M4 does not support Windows 2003 at all.

The reason I am quoted is "Both Intel and Microsoft do NOT support W2k3 on both the new Romley EP (i.e. x3550 M4) and Sandy Bridge EP (x3500 M4)"

I can't find anything on Hp about the G8 servers to confirm or deny this either.

Does anyone have any decent links or articles that actually verify this?

Thanks

Not listed in the server/OS matrix - http://h71028.www7.hp.com/enterprise/cache/583787-0-0-0-121.html.
If you did get it to work you'd not be able to log support calls. You could always run 2003 under Hyper-V or VMware of course.

Thanks, that got me the answer. G8 servers models listed under the W2008 tab, but not under 2003. I was expecting to see servers listed inder W2003, but have no "ticks" when not supported...Hp logic i guess..

However, you got me there.

Thanks
