Not quite sure what your problem is but I would recommend getting Windows Server for a server like this. The HP site recommends the following OSes: Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (Standard, Enterprise, and Datacenter) , LINUX (Red Hat, SuSE) or Microsoft Windows 2000 Datacenter Edition. It is unlikely Windows 7 will install on this 5 year old server.
Raid level 5 gives you some redundancy in your raid however it only allows you to lose one hard drive, two hdd lost would not permit to recover from. the parity bit can rebuild one hard drive but not two, sorry your raid might be lost
You don't say whether or not your os is on the RAID 5 partition. Assuming that it is (for performance reasons, this is not recommended) then you should check to see if you have the option of configuring a separate raid configuration on your raid card (e.g. do you have a card with more then one RAID channel?) If this is so, I would create a separate RAID 1 array and install the OS just on that. Then you can mount the RAID 5 array with your data intact. Once you're up and running, you can remove the old OS partition, as it's no longer needed.
