Question about Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server

Look in Bios setup for OS Install mode setting. If it is enabled, it restricts the RAM to 256MB. Change the setting to off and it will sense the total RAM

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
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

Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver you installed is for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use "troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program installer first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run. Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))
