Cannot install HP MS Win2008 EBS ROK on DL380G5 with Xenserver

I have installed about 10 servers now using Citrix Xenserver 5 on DL380 G5's without an issue. We decided to start purchasing HP Branded Microsoft Windows 2008 Essential Business Server ROK to use. The problem is that the installer doesn't know that it is being installed on HP equipment and gives the error "This system is not supported Platform" and prevents it from being installed. There is a fix to pass the bios information to the VM using VMWare ESX but I cannot find anything for Xenserver. We would love to resell HP Branded Windows 2008 but will have to discontinue selling it and just use the good old Microsoft Windows 2008 if we cannot get this resolved as we support Xenserver. I've talked to Citrix and was informed that I need to contact HP. Help please!
