    Hi all,

    With the recent release of the Xenon OS, I imagine a lot of you will be dying for a genuine Xenon G5 unit to put it on :p

    It has all of the correct hardware, to the T! Including the correct network card etc. Original graphics cards so will have any special BIOS if that was ever needed?

    Price: £2,000 (ON HOLD)
    Location: UK, I will not post, but willing to meet buyer in UK

    I could not see the media section anywhere on the site so I’m unable to post there, but happily will if someone corrects me!

    Validation: (excuse the second one in the back, it’s not for sale!)

    Thanks for looking!

    I could be wrong, but I think its a mobile OS and the joke is putting a mobile OS on this giant dev box? :) Either way im highly interested in this unit.

    Xenon OS is the dev OS for the Xenon kits. It was just recently dumped finally and now people can finally install it on alpha kits that had been wiped/hdds taken out.

    Excuse my ignorance, but can you make your own alpha kit if you have the drive?

    All good :)

    Yes, if you get the right parts you can build your own. Read through this thread, you'll learn much about what you need to do.

    Nope it’s been wiped, it’s just a regular g5 with some fancy stickers

    I thought your G5 was an Alpha 1. You'll want to clarify what GPU is installed as the released 1529 recovery only works on an Alpha 2 ATI Radeon X800 XT graphics card. It will not boot on the ATI Radeon 9800 Pro Alpha 1 card. There wasn't any special BIOS or firmware on either the GPU or logic board.

    Stickers are a nice identifier that it's original for something like this.
    Otherwise I love studio stickers on dev equipment. Tells a bit more of the story for the particular unit. Like knowing my PSP kit came from Square Enix and is named Dario (with Elisa also handwritten on it, employee name?), it's just fun.

    Yeah I do agree. But hardware wise it is the same as a standard g5.

    The g5 alpha is off the shelf. Then MS loaded them with custom software. A standard g5 of certain specs can load XeOS. Take a look at the wiki
