Hi zhonglee upgrading from Win NT 4.0 to Win 2000 or XP on your server for personal use or single use is fine and definitely possible but mind you W2K Pro or XP will not provide services of Server OS like Win NT 4.0 Server

I am using ProLiant ML110 Server i wont to use windows xp how to find the driver for xp


Hi,

ProLiant ML 110 server series does not supports windows XP. It Support only the below OS.

  1. Windows 2000
  2. Windows 2003
  3. NetWare 5.1
  4. NetWare 6.0
  5. NetWare 6.5
  6. RHEL 2.1 (32 Bit)
  7. RHEL 4 (32 Bit)
  8. RHL 9
  9. SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8
If you want to force this hardware to support windows XP, then download windows 2003 drivers which is equivalent to XP; but not the same as XP.

WINDOWS 2003 DRIVER LINK

Do this model supporsts win xp service pack 2


Hi.

This unit has a Pentium 4 2GHz single core processor, and does support Windows XP SP2.

The standard memory installed on this unit was 256KB RAM, in order to run XP efficently you will need to upgrade the RAM. I suggest upgrading RAM to the maximum amount allowed of 2 GB RAM.

To upgrade the RAM to 2 GB you will need 2 modules of 1GB PC2100 184 pin DIMM ECC each.

Micron 1GB DDR RAM PC-2100 ECC

Hi,
The Firmware Maintenance CD, which shipped with Rapid Deployment Pack - Windows Edition 3.50, allows the iLO 2 firmware to be successfully upgraded using the "Upgrade ProLiant ML/DL/BL Firmware" job in RDP.

Poweredge 1800 server


Hey,

I looked over the spesifications for the poweredge 1800 servers, go ahead, it will work perfectly but there is one problem in the windows XP setup, you will need to insert / load SCSI or SATA drivers for the hard drive With a floppy disk, or if you don't have a floppy drive your going to need to create a custom windows xp setup cd and add the drivers into it so it can start the SCSI or SATA hard drive and finish the install. without the drivers it might not find the hard drive.

Aside from that I don't see any other problems. You should be able to get the drivers, and everything ese from dell site
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/

Actually I looked over the dell downloads, I see only windows 2000 on the list with windows server 2003, and 2008 and linux distributions.

This could be a 2nd problem, drivers might not be avaialble, or work with xp, but we might be able to get it to work.


So two problems, SCSI or SATA drivers in windows xp / windows 2000 setup

2nd problem is in windows xp drivers, you could try windows 2003's drivers and 2000's and see if they work, if not, then we would have to look for drivers ourselfs from the internet.

So xp might cause headache but we might get it working, windows 2000 seems to be supported perfectly.

Let me know how the project goes
Thanks,
Ekse

How i can format my Mirra Personal M-120?


1. Make sure the CDROM is set as the first boot device in BIOS.
2. Insert the Windows XP/2000 cd in the CDROM
3. Restart the server
4. When 'Press any key to boot to cd' message is displayed, press any key
5. Follow the steps to reinstall the operating system, one of your options will be to format (I would recommend NTFS)

Hope that helps!
