Since it can use "customer provided" Windows and SUSE linux the boot
environment is probably normal enough for FreeBSD/amd64 to boot.

The main thing to check is to make sure the onboard NIC and SCSI
controllers are supported.

The other thing of course is to make sure there's no critical app you
need that isn't amd64 ported yet.
