HP does not support any desktop OS on a server platform so the CD that comes with the machine will be of very limited use, particularly for Vista given the age of this machine. Your best bet(no guarantees) is to download the SmartStart CD for Server 2008 from HP.

Once you have burned a CD, boot from it and follow the directions for installing Server 2008. When it comes time to put in the 2008 DVD, put the Vista DVD in instead. It will likely not take this gracefully. If it does, great. If not, reboot the machine with the Vista DVD still in the drive. It should find the drivers that SmartStart left on the hard drive OK and proceed

Unfortunately there is a good chance that it will reject one or more dirvers, particularly storage. Depending on what type of drives and controllers you have, you may be able to find drivers from the chipset manufacturer. One other option is to search for an appropriate driver for an HP X class workstation. They share many components with Proliants and do support Vista.

Good luck and if you need more assistance let us know.

Windows Server 2008 Network Driver for Proliant ML350 G3


Anyone who has tried loading Windows Server 2008 on their Proliant ML350 G3 has found that HP does not offer the network driver for this system.

BUT, the Windows Server 2003 driver for the NC series Broadcom 1gb will work! Rather than choosing the 'install' option, choose to 'extract' it, then via the device manager, manually install the driver from that location.

Happy Computing!

Problem with harddrive


It could be because the disk is not a part of any array. Log into the server and go to the array controller utility from HP and check for any unassigned disks. It will be displayed there rather than the diskmanagement window.

ITS NOT LOADING WINDOWS


If it is not booting at all then the disks will not be configured. Better boot the server using the HP utility CD and install the OS after creating the right array and partitions.

Hp proliant ml350 g5 vga drivers for windows 2000 professional


Download the latest Proliant Support Pack from HP's web site. This will update the drivers for everything on the server at once.

Just go to hp.com and click the link for "Support & Drivers" at the top, then click the radio button to download drivers and enter ML350 into the text box. Select the G5 from the list and then select your OS. The PSP will be near the bottom of the page. The display driver will be close to the top if you just want to update it.
