View Full Version : [all variants] Installing ununtu on a Compac Proliant 3135 series server

August 14th, 2009, 08:08 PM
First off I want to thank everyone for a great forum and people here are willing to take their time and help people with their systems

O.k I have a Compaq Proliant series 3135 server just sitting in the corner doing nothing I am wanting to install ubuntu on it and put it to use I have a few questions

1.) Is there anyway that I can install ubuntu on it ?

2.) If it is possible what version of Ubuntu will work (server) ?

3.) Will I have any problems with the hardware I know it has 4 SCSI Harddrives 2 CPU's

4.) Will it be worth trying to install Ubuntu server on this machine?

edit: 5.) I forgot to add I seen some where that there is away to control the server from my desktop through the web without a monitor, keyboard or mouse hooked up after install will this also be possible to do ?

Also it has Windows 2000 server install I want to remove this all together

If any one can point me in the right direction or help on setting Ubunbtu up on this machine would be greatly appropriated

I have seen a site on a Compaq proliant 1600 series server but not for sure it would be the same here is the link to the site


Thanks in advance

Sorry for the typo in the title I tried to change it but could not

If no one can help that is fine I will try and search for how to install or try to install with the link above to see if it will work or not

What ticks me off I get a kernel panic in ubuntu 7.04 server and windows xp will install I used it to see if it was the system but Windows XP will install with no problem and I don't want to run XP on this machine

What would cause a kernel panic how can I resolve this I guess I am just posting this for nothing b/c of no replies or help with this

I am not saying no one wants to help I am saying it is probably a lost cause and will never get it to work

I was wanting to use the server as a file server for my network
