Q. What Macs can I install Lion Server on?
A. Lion Server requires an Intel-based Mac with a Core 2 Duo, i3, i5, i7 or Xeon processor and 2GB of RAM. You can check whether you have a compatible Mac by going to Apple menu > About This Mac and checking the information listed for "Processor", "Memory" and Mac OS X "Version".
Q. My Mac has the correct type of processor but I don't have enough RAM. What can I do?
A. All the supported Macs can run at least 2GB of RAM so all you need to do is upgrade your RAM to at least a minimum of 2GB. In the UK we recommend Kingston Technology lifetime warranty memory for your Mac. Most Macs usually only have two memory slots so it is best to upgrade to as much RAM as you can afford the first time. If your Mac supports 4GB or 8GB then upgrade to the maximum.
Q. I have a "Core Duo" / "Core Solo" Mac which is an Intel processor. Why can't I install Lion Server?
A. Lion Server is a 64 bit operating system. The original Intel "Core Duo" and "Core Solo" processors are only 32 bit processors. If you want to run Lion Server you will have to buy a new computer.
Q. I have a "PowerPC" Mac such as a 64 bit G5. Can I install Lion Server?
