Can anybody tell me how to setup a Proliant 1850R? Pretty much want to use it as a backup PC. Been having trouble accessing BIOS. Not sure what is going on. I want to be able to utilize to full potential as a PC for now, perhaps as a server in the future.

Then pick your OS and grab the network driver that you need. I see it says it's for the Proliant CL1850 server, but that was the only 1850 model that seemed to show up so I'm going to guess it'll work.
Have you checked the BIOS?
Check the Backup ROM option (change to Backup ROM)
If you haven't change the Boot Order:
Go into RSBU and change the Order.
Note: If you have Scsi you do not need to do any additional things rather than this.
If your product has a Smart Array Controller, during the POST, press F8 during the Smart Array controller ID to access the configuration utility, delete and re-create the disk array to wipe out whatever might be on the disks.

Boot the machine in Safe Mode. If you have video at that point, change the Display Settings to lower values, reset the Monitor Type to Default and reboot. It sounds like the resolution and/or refresh rates it is attempting to use are beyond the capabilities of the devices.
Do the server has an onboard Video disable the video in the BIOS setup insert another PCI Video card and check for the display , IF the PCI display is up then there could be a problem with Onboard card.
This means that the non-volatile memory on the motherboard (also called "BIOS memory", or simply "BIOS" has got corrupted. This may be because the tiny battery on the motherboard is dead and needs to be replaced (I can't remember offhand if the ML370 has a BIOS backup battery, so that may not be it). In any case, you need to go into the BIOS setup program as the server starts up, correct any errors you find there and then Save Changes. You may find the only option initially is to Reset to Defaults. If so, accept that, save it, then go back into the BIOS setup and customise as necessary.
I don't think that you "enable" 64 bit processing, you buy a server with a 64 bit processor. Intel's Itanium is such one. You then install Windows Server 2003 x64 version.
That's pretty much it I think.
