Compaq Proliant ML530

I want to install XP Pro on a Proliant ML530. I have Smart Start 7 but it does not list XP as an install option. Can anyone assist with instructions for installing XP Pro?
I have installed 2003 Enterprise and it runs fine but I would really like to try XP Pro. Thanking you in advance for any help offered.

Re: Compaq Proliant ML530

You can't install XP on this server useng SmartStart, try to boot with XP install CD, press F6, load the drivers for your SCSI contoller. But i'm not shure about drivers for SCSI controller for XP, may be you can try drivers for WIN 2003.
