Poweredge 6800 operating system

user3769120 asked:

Can I put Ubuntu 14.04 LOS on this? Dell site says only Windows 2003 server? KVM board blocks any upgrades by blocking the USB and CDROM device from working?

My answer:


The supported operating systems are:

Microsoft® Windows ServerTM 2003, Standard x64 Edition;
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise x64 Edition;
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Standard Edition;
Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Enterprise Edition;
Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® 3 and 4;
SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server 9 EM64T SP2

Everything on this list is end of life, or shortly to be end of life.

You’re on your own for installing any other OS. (And if you want to ask a question about that, you need to specifically ask about it and provide a lot of detail.)

My recommendation would be to put this beast back in the dumpster that it came out of.
