I've heard of that and worse from HP. What possessed you to go buy a

purchase a system (I purpose build everything - I can't afford
downtime and no one in their right mind sells 3.5 Tb servers cheap)
I'd buy a Dell. HP and Sony are trash.
I have never had that problem. I have a three year extended warrenty with HP and they have never given me flack about running Linux. This is on a laptop, not a server however. They do wipe the drive and install an unpatched version of Windows on it every time I send it in. I have a bare drive for that reason.

The end result was the replacement with an unused system which then
suffered a catastrophic disk failure, and resulted in my purchase of my
first complete system from a major vendor, HP. Before this acquisition
I spent the past 20 years getting parts from Fry's and other Bay Area
stores, and assembling systems on my own. When I tried to register the
hardware I had some problems relating to the failure of Internet access
to an HP computer system. I called the tech support line to do the
thing, but I aborted this call when I was told by a tech support person
AND his supervisor that I would be ineligible for tech support because
about the first thing I did with the system was blow away Vista and
installed Fedora Linux (FC6, not F7 or F8).
I am interested in discovering whether others have heard of this crap
and how people were able to deal with this issue.
