Where Can I Find an Intel 64 bit Distro
My goal is to build a virtual server with Ubuntu being the host OS running VMWare. My machine has a Supermicro X6DHE-XB Mobo with 2 Intel Xion Dual CPUs and 4Gb RAM. This should give me enough to run 2 virtual guests at any one time.
Some problems that I need suggestions with:
Is Ubuntu the better choice for my ultimate goal?
The only Ubuntu distros for 64 bit indicate AMD processors. Will these work with an Intel Xion? If not then what should I use?
When I try to load any ubuntu distro on this machine, it hangs at boot. Doesn’t even give me the question to boot from CD. Sometimes I get the following:
ISOLINUX 4.02 debian-20101016 ETCD copyright © 1994-2010 H.Peter Anvin et al
It goes no farther. That is the most I get. Even after letting it sit that way for an hour (just in case).
Please know that this machine will boot to a CD with DOS, XP distro or Win7 distro with no problems. Also, the Ubuntu distros I tried to load on this machine works well on my laptop and a 64 bit AMD box.
Please help me figure how to get this distro to boot.
