Servers need the Drivers for the Drive array card.
The server should have come with a smartStart CD that has the drivers for it.
You are NOT going to get another OS on this machine unless you load the drivers for the adapter.
... and why put XP on a Server? that's not the optimal OS for the hardware.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Increase processing speeds ProLiant ML370

Only the obvious like CPU, RAM and network. You can check your specs against these possible configurations.

To be honest, don't see 64 Bit support so it may not make a difference, because of 32 Bit OS limitations.

You may need to reapply thermal grease to the cpu/heatsink combo. Over time, the grease will disapate and needs to be reapplied. Also, if your memory cards are very hot, you can add heatsinks to those to assist with cooling. And lastly, you may check to make sure that your power supply is the correct wattage for your system. A low 350W power supply trying to push a 780W system will create a strain on all component parts.

Good Luck
