RX5670 and Windows Server 2008

Does HP ever plan on adding Windows Server 2008 support to RX5670?

What is the primary reason Windows Server 2008 isn't supported right now? Is it the lack of a storage adapter driver? If so, shouldn't I be able to just plug in my own Windows 2008 compatible storage controller with hard drive (and maybe DVD drive) and install it that way? Perhaps would there be a way to muck up storage drivers from the 2003 ones?

Bob,

no plans for support of w2k8 on rx6570 and other servers from that generation like rx2600/rx2620 ..

The older BIOS in those systems does not support all the w2k8 features i.e. think about power management , PCI-e support and others.
Given those systems are end of life, no development is done to make them support all those features, if even technically possible.
