Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 7
Novell NetWare 6.5 Support Pack 8


Installing Netware 6.5 hangs after pressing "Continue" following the lan driver detection screen, without error message. It just flashes "loading driver, please wait" forever. It is still possible to switch screens, but there is no further activity.


Trying to install Netware on a hard drive device exceeding 2TB in size.  Netware doesn't support individual disk devices bigger than 2TB. To successfully install Netware on such a server, the disk devices must be split up so that each one doesn't exceed the 2TB limit. This should be possible with most modern Raid controllers.
