Can Windows 2008 64-bit work on ProLiant DL360 G3?

I've been trying to look through the support forms and I've been unsuccessful so far. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if the 64-bit edition of Windows 2008 can work on the HP ProLiant DL360 G3? If not, what's the newest Windows OS that can work on it? Windows 2008 32-bit? Windows 2003 32/64-bit? Thanks allot for yoru time

There is always some scope for improvment.

I bet if you use the latest smart start cd (8.3) you will find that you can install the 32-bit version of 2008 server. Server 2008 R2 is 64 bit only, so thats out of the question though, as the DL360 G3 is a 32bit server.

I installed 64bit server 2008 on the HP version of ESXi 4.0 on a DL385 G1 (with E6 revision opteron 280s) and that works lovely, even though it is supposed to be a no-go, due to the opterons being pre AMD-V extentions.

No 64 bit stuff will work on the dl360 g3s I have two of them. The processors are only 32 bit I believe. I was able to get Windows 2008 32 bit on them though, and it works very nicely actually.
