I acquired an Apple Xserve 2008 for no apparent reason at all except that I
thought it would be fun to throw OpenIndiana Hipster on it and learn more about
virtualization, maybe set up Plex, NZBget, Sonarr and some other (zoned or
VMed) services and a development environment for data analytics software. I
created an OpenIndiana 2017.04 CD and tried to boot the Xserve but the EFI did
not recognize the CD as a boot disk. Has anyone else tried installing on an
Xserve? I thought the OpenIndiana installation media could boot on EFI enabled
machines? Any ideas are welcome. I have yet to try using a UB flash to boot
OpenIndiana but something tells me that this has to do with EFI as I was able
to boot on a BIOS Dell i5 laptop with no hassle.
One more question. Has anyone ever set up a macOS kvm under Hipster? Would be
great to have that set up and run Xcode in it.
Currently OpenIndiana doesn't support UEFI boot.
