DL 380 G4 - is it compatible with 64-bit Windows OS?

Background: We have several DL 380 G4, this particular one, " S/N USE28c053".
Question: We are trying to install Windows 2008 64-bit [Datacenter version]but it took for ever to install the OS and then every time it reboots take for ever to come back ready to use. Is it 64-bit compatible? Are we missing some update on the server? please comment.

Thnx,

Ademir Soares, CIO

Hi Ademir,

Windows 2008 is not supported on this model server. See the OS Support section of the quickspecs here:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12028_div/12028_div.html

The processors are 64-bit compatible so you should have no trouble with Windows 2003 x64.

Good luck, points are appreciated if this helped!

This server should be 64-bit compatible.

The DL380 G4 and the DL385 G1 (which is what this server looks like) are compatible with Server 2008 64-bit. Please make sure you update the firmware CD. This will make sure that the BIOS is up to date to support the OS.

Hi Ademir,
I'm sure that DL380 G4 fully supports Windows 2003 X64
but I'm not sure about windows 2008.
However the HCL on Microsoft shows that windows 2008 x64 is supported on one model of DL380 G4
