CSACS-1120-K9 is an ACS appliance, and it supports both ACS version 5.0 and 5.1.

Here is the release notes for both versions:



FYI, ACS version 5.x onwards is completely different to the previous version of ACS 3.x and 4.x.

If you would order the ACS appliance, you would get recovery disks with it which would have the ACS for Solution Engine.You would just need to use that disk, it would first install the base Operating System and then the ACS software.

You would not need to order the ACS for windows disk, this disk is used when you would like to install ACS on a server which is already running the Operating system like windows 2000/2003/2008.
