CentOS on a Itanium Server

Postby pfitas » 2011/06/30 16:40:00

Hi all,

I need some help installing a Centos on a Siemens Fujitsu RXI600 Itanium server.
I ménage to configure the disk raid (raid 1 with a spare disk). But I’m not able to start the setup of the OS (CentOS) :(
The Cd will not boot, I only get the EFI-Shell......

Please help me! How do I start the setup from the CentOS CD ?
What step’s do I have to take ?

Best Regards,

Support for itanium is a "come and go" project. You may want to read this thread on the centos-devel mailing list.

Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

For more background google ia64 site:centos.org. The last IA64 release appears to have been CentOS-4.4.
