DOM for thinkserver models to load xen or vmware?

[ Edited ]

I just go tmy first Lenovo TD230 in. Looking at replacing a lot of Dell servers with these and the RD240 as well.


With Dell we would order a USB/Flash model to install internally that had Xen Server or VMWare preinstalled. Is there something similar with VMWare or do I need to just install drives and create a small partition (or separate RAID array) for the vmware OS.


From what I read XenServer is not supported on the TD230 because of RAID driver issue. Just wanted to see if anyone had any advise to offer.
