Type of testing
Compatibility and stress – System stress with special test software is used to maximize the stress of the CPU, memory, and IO buses of the platform. The test areas in compatibility validation are verification of basic functionality, OS installation and boot.
Intel provides support for customers that have issues with the operating system involving installation and/or functionality of the server board. Support is provided regardless if adapters and peripherals were tested under the operating system.
Basic testing – OS installation, boot, and functional validation
