    I bought an Xserve Box to use as an Encoder for DOLBY TrueHD and Episode Engine. Before going into production with these two apps I would like to run some tests under windows 7 on this hardware. No matter what I try I cannot install windows nativley (for performance reasons)on this box.
    Have done:
    Made windows fat partition.
    Tried to start with windows installer disk (disk not recognized as windows. It is simply listed as an EFI disk but does not start)

    Tried to install Snowleopard (not server) "This OS can not be installed"

    Maybe I have to flash the Bios with one from a MacPro?
