should it be possible to install SLES12SP1 to this system:
Type: IBM System X 8878
CPU: 4x Intel Xeon 7140N (Dualcore 3,3 GHz, 16M Cache)
RAM: 28 GB
HDD: 3x 70 GB
PCI: LAN, FC
RAID Controller, CD-Drive
Boot from DVD or USB takes an very(!) long time (more as one hour from power
on to ‘choose keyboard’).
I found an old DVD with openSUSE 13.1 and try to install. This runs like a
charme. Whats wrong with SLES12SP1?[/color]
By “IBM System X 8878” do you mean IBM System x3950 (Type 8878)?
If so, what version of BIOS does it have?
A quick search finds instructions for installing SLES9 SP3 and
SLES10 which ties with it being older hardware.
Are you able to try booting openSUSE Leap 42.1 from USB and/or
DVD? This release is closer to SLES12 SP1.
