Thread: Autoinstall on SLES9 (32bit O/S on 64bit system)

    Default Autoinstall on SLES9 (32bit O/S on 64bit system)

    For business reasons, I'm installing SLES 9 SP4 32 bit on a 64bit server. I am also creating an auto-install CD allowing 700 of these servers to be build by a team of non-technical associates.

    My question is simple:

    Is there a way I can change the installation to avoid popping up the following warning:

    Cool Computer, but...
    You are about to install 32-bit software on a 64-bit computer.


    Thanks in advance.

    No... this happens before any of the automatic stuff takes over (since
    it's on the next screen that you specify that information). Maybe you
    could use a 64-bit ISO and then point to a 32-bit installation
    source.... but that's just a wild guess currently.

    Good luck.
