System x and BladeCenter
operating systems offerings

Attention:

A four-digit feature code is used to specify a component that is configurable in the configurators and the Web-based Hardware Configurator, used in US and Canada. Options that do not have feature codes cannot be integrated by Lenovo into a system using these configurators. To purchase options separately, refer to the option part number provided in this document.


All OS offerings must be purchased with new hardware. If the hardware is bought directly from Lenovo, Microsoft offerings must be purchased integrated within new hardware. The Web-based Hardware Configurator, used in US and Canada should be used to specify the four-digit Microsoft feature code that must be chosen to integrate into a new server configuration. All OS offerings may also be available from Lenovo Business Partners. Subscription offerings from Red Hat and SUSE may be purchased without new Lenovo hardware when renewing an offering subscription that was initially purchased from Lenovo.

Lenovo Systems Group offers Operating Systems (OS) on System x and BladeCenter servers. Lenovo OS offerings are made available on a server after rigorous testing is completed to assure that they are reliable solutions. Purchasing the OS with new hardware is a convenient and cost-effective way to deploy new hardware. Some Microsoft OS offerings are available pre-installed on the server. All other offerings must be installed by the customer.

The following chart shows which OS offerings are available for each System x server or chassis.
