Intel Atom Processor D525MW M/B support for RHEL 5 and Cent OS 5.1


Hi All,

I have the Intel Atom Processor with D525MW Motherboard and I'm trying to install Centos 5.1 and its not getting installed and even I tried for RHEL 5 also but no luck. Have you guys ever tried to install CentOS or RHEL 5.1 on Intel Atom Processor D525MW M/B.

I think the above operating systems doesn't supports this model of Motherboard and Processor. So if guys have any solutions for this kindly do the needful at the earliest.

Thanks and Regards,
Veereshkumar N

Both of those OS's have server support. They have almost no common hardware support so you'd have to add in as you can.

Red Hat 5.1 was released in 2007. Try Fedora for support for your newer hardware.

Thanks for the Reply,

Yes its having support for latest version of Centos 5.7 and Fedora 12 and above, but for my requirement I needed RHEL 5 or Centos 5.1 OS. So if you have any patches or any other updates regarding this kindly let me know.

Purchase pre-2007 hardware that is certified for RHEL 5.1 from this list: http://www.redhat.com/rhel/compatibility/hardware/

Or have you considered a virtual environment? (But I'm not sure the virtualization capability of your Atom processor.)

Or (maybe the best option?) contact Red Hat support since you are presumably paying $299/year for a support contract, right?
