    Hi

    I would like to install OSX Server onto a Dell Poweredge server. I would be happy installing either Lion or Snow Leopard and had planned on using a copy of RebelEFI which I still have.

    From my research, I think it will work and run smoothly, however I was just hoping someone would be able to confirm this for me.

    I am looking at using any of (I have included the eBay URL's if that is helpful to anybody);

    - Dell PowerEdge 2650 Dual Xeon 3.2Ghz HT 8GB RAM Server (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI....72321&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_3813wt_1000)

    - Dell PowerEdge 850 Dual Core 3.0Ghz 4GB 1U SATA Server (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dell-Powe...working_SM&hash=item19c49379c6#ht_3654wt_1056)

    - Dell 2650 Dual Xeon 3.2Ghz HT 8GB RAM Server 146GB RAID (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Dell-Powe...working_SM&hash=item19c49379c6#ht_3654wt_1056)


    If someone could confirm compatibility with any of these, I would much appreciate it.

    Thanks in advanced,

    Sam Heather

    I asked in all three of those first (TonyMacX and Insanely Mac 4 days ago) and haven't got an answer yet, so I was hoping someone here would be able to help.

    OK, I looked at the machines. I don't think any of them would run a vanilla OS X kernel.

    Two of them have a Pentium D and the other has a ServerWorks GC-LE Chipset (I've never even heard of that chipset).
