    Install Fedora on Xserve, part II

    4elements | web design The Hague blog • Install Fedora on Xserve, part II

    Goal: Finding a good dedicated server for professional use.

    Goal: Finding a server of high quality and decent price.
    Solution: I found a brand new Apple Xserve on ebay.com.
    Specs: Xserve1,1 (2006) Quad 2Ghz Processor, 64BIT, 8GB RAM and 3x750 GB HD.

    Problem: Mac OS X Server does not has any web based user interface for professional web site hosting.
    Problem: I use Cpanel.net for all my clients, converting accounts won't be a solution.
    Problem: Cpanel.net does not support Mac OS X.

    Solution: Install a Linux OS that is supported by Cpanel.net.
    Problem: While the Xserve only supports EFI it's not possible to use Bootcamp or any other Linux OS. You can't boot or install a Linux OS CD/DVD AOTB.

    Solution: I was able to install and run Fedora 11 with Cpanel.net on my Xserve1,1

    Hi, there is a large gap in how you figured out how to get past the EFI wall and get Linux on the Xserve. Care to expand on this?
