Did you try to install it? What is the error you are seeing?

You are right HP doesn't claim official Support for W2000.

Some times OS will install, You may face some other problems, Some one who have tried it will be able to put more light on it.

IMHO, the best way is install VMware/Virtual Server and windows 2000 as guest....

I utilized the ILO virtual floppy and created an image with the SCSI drivers. This helped me install the OS.

Still have to use PSP 7.6 but everything is working like a champ.
