Why use ServerGuide?

ServerGuide accelerates and simplifies the installation of IBM servers in the following ways:

  • Assists with installing popular operating systems
    Provides updated device drivers based on the hardware detected.
  • Reduces reboots during hardware configuration and native operating system installation
    With fewer reboots and your server up and running sooner, your IT personnel can complete other tasks, which reduces your total cost of ownership.
  • Provides consistency and confidence in server installation
    ServerGuide guides you through well-planned and well-designed user interface dialogues.
  • Provides access to additional firmware and drivers not applied at install time
    Access to additional firmware and drivers not applied at install time (adapter cards which may not be machine at install times and added later), as well as system drivers for other types of IBM servers.
