Clean install? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to install WHS 2011 on an old Hp Pavillion a410n

    It has

    intel celeron 2.8GHZ

    2GB  RAM

    120 GB HDD

    I have installed Windows 8 CP and UBUNTU

    When I try to install/run setup for WHS 2011, I receive the error Current system is incompatible. How can I do a clean install? Thank you.

  • Use a larger HDD. Minimum hardware specs are a 1.4 Ghz 64 bit processor, 2 GB, RAM, 160 GB HDD.

  • Rats. I should have checked the specs first.:P 

    The celeron processor is wrong also.

    Thanks

  • Some Celeron processors support a 64 bit OS. I don't remember the stepping at which that became a possibility, however.
