Choose the one that has originally the most similar CPU to yours. Or just take DS3615. We have been running that for years before loaders for different editions came out.

Thank you for the reply. Is there anything wrong with the DS3617xs boot loader? I only ask because you stated the DS1815xs. What happens if we have a Xeon  CPU but select the DS916 instead of the DS3615/3617 bootloaders? I am thinking there must be something pro/cons otherwise why have choices??

ds3615xs is older x86 architecture and has the most package support

ds3617xs is slightly newer x86 architecture and has better native add-in card support since it has an exposed PCI slot, but extra.lzma mostly covers the bases on all platforms

ds916 has the most recent x86 instruction and quickconnect support, if you want to hardware transcode and have compatible hardware
