I have a Dell PowerEdge R510 and I want to install the latest version of CentOS on it (currently 7.1) so I can maintain the system with updates. RHEL is supported by Dell, so I assume CentOS can be installed also. Tricking the Dell software in believing it's RHEL being installed on should do the trick?
According to the Dell Support page for the R510, Dell supports RHEL 6 but not RHEL7. Dell supports RHEL7 for some other 11G servers but the R510 is not one of them.
I tried installing CentOS 7.1 on it and it installed without a problem, so I could start using the system as of now. But what do I miss if I don't install any software from Dell? Should I return to CentOS 6 so I can install Dell Software?
