I don't see a problem. Windows server 2008 x64 is supported on this server and there are hp drivers for it and the CPU should support it. Even though I think there is an issue with Hiper-V and iLO. You can use iLO with no problems, but when trying to access a virtual machine using iLO the mouse and keyboard functionality does work properly, but VMWARE doesn't have that issue.

That's the issue I was talking about Hiper-V and ILO, but seems to have a solution. Even though similar thing happens with remote desktop

Re: DL 385 G1 and Hyper-V

there are some CPU compatability issues with Hyper-v, so that is why it will not allow you to load the component
