Windows Server 2019 or 2016 on Blade HX5 7873

Hi,

 

Please, I'm checking and I can't find on Windows Server Catalog or Lenovo Server Proven portal that I'm able to install Windows Server 2016 on HX5(7873).

My doubt is there any way or cantact team from Microsoft, IBM or Lenovo could help me in that case?

 

Tks

You can find the OS support matrixes via link:
https://lenovopress.com/osig#server_families=bladecenter&servers=hx5-7873&os_families=microsoft-wind...

Because the HX5 has been withdrawn , the certified OS is up to 2012r2, and Lenovo won't
spend development resource to certify on win2016.

If you don't see problem when installing win2016, that means the basic driver(raid,nic,etc) from OS is ok, but you won't be able to get Lenovo released driver on Win 2016.

Hi danielwang_SZ,

Thank you for your support!

I found the ServerGuide to 2016, I'll try that.
