DL-145 Windows Install Question

Have a DL-145, not sure if G2, G3, suspect G3, but my question is somewhat more general.

We would like to reinstall windows server x64, as we do not have any of the disk that come with the server, I certainly could add the LSI drivers to the cd image and go from there.

Howerver what HP utility would I use to prep the server, similar to Dell Server Manager.

Thanks

The DL-145 G2 does not come with any sort of server disk. (per HP Server support) The G3 might.

not sure why HP is being cheap on that, redoing a machine is much easier with the server boot disk that has all the info. Dell server preps are pretty easy across all their lines.
