[HELP] Intel Server Board SHG2


Hi All.

I've found an old intel server in one of my garages, that mounts an Intel server board SHG2. 

I'm trying to install an OS since weeks, tried with DVDs, UsbDrives but nothing.

Is this board able to install an OS  from an usb? 

I've tried:

  • Debian 32 bit
  • Ubuntu server 32 bit
  • Ubuntu
  • Windows 7 32 bit
  • Windows 10 32 bit
  • Windows server 2003

With DVDs the server read the data and start the setup, but suddenly it crash.

I've tried 3 different DVD reader, 5 usb drives, resetted the BIOS.


Am I doing something wrong? 


Attached to this question i've uploaded the manual found somewhere in the internet.

Hello FrancescoTimballo,

Thank you for joining the community

Due to this product being discontinued, Intel Customer Service no longer supports inquiries for it, but perhaps fellow community members have the knowledge to jump in and help. You may also find the Discontinued Products website helpful to address your request. Thank you for understanding.
