I'm installing NW65sp6 on a DL385G2 with great trouble. The box freezes
and the only way of getting out of there is by recycling. There is a known
issue at Novell and HP.

See the link

But the resolution does not do the trick. So i tried to update Smartstart
from 7.70 to 7.80. I Tried to run older Overlay installations such as
NW65SP3 and NW65SP5. Not a difference.

I lack the option of disabling Hyperthreading in BIOS on this model. I
have updated ACPI, and all other storage and devicedrivers concerning IDE,
and SATA devices.

Any other suggestions?
