如果用redhat 4.x,如果張底板壞咗,揾張差不多一樣chipset的底板,會唔會自動上得翻呢?

windows多數都得,唔知redhat得唔得呢?

因為公司買咗套系統用redhat 4.x的,但係又冇join保養

多數得

Windows 唔得既原因係 IDE/SATA/SCSI 的 driver 不同了,linux 沒這個問題,尤其是 rhel 都是用 initramfs + modules 來 load 這些 driver,基本上即使整套硬件不同了,仍可以啟動…

Even different chipset, different brandname of CPU, usually (>95%), you can still boot RHEL 4.  Some minor problems to note,
1. AHCI vs IDE mode in BIOS, better to match the original main board.
2. EIST, SpeedStep, etc. bettter to disable them, on the RHEL 4 kernel, it cannot handle the automatic speed up and down of the CPU.  The clock will run into problem.
3. Built in network card MAC address, you might need to edit /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth*, and adjust (or comment out) the HDADDR line.  Or, the new main board network card will get a new interface number.

Linux is easy to migrate, only Windows make migration a mess.

My 2 cents.

就算唔得,入 cd 落去, 入rescue mode 可以改返 driver.

一於 vm 佢,, 冇下次~!

試過AMD 轉去 Intel平台都只係因為部機無 8168個driver而上唔到network only.....
