DL120G5 Easy cd set up Smart Start?

We have a DL120G5 server that needs to be upgraded to at least to Windows 2008R2 to get the Exec back up to work for our Exchange server 2010.  We don't have cd or iso for this server all the smart start we have downloaded comes back with

"Unsupported Model - installation not available".  Is it possible someone can provide me with the correct version of either smart start or easy cd setup for DL120G5 server. Or provide some sort of way I can get Windows server 2008R2 on there.


Re: DL120G5 Easy cd set up Smart Start?



HP SmartStart CD does not support 100 series servers.

Easy Setup-CD is supported only on few 100 series servers starting with G6.



For more information, refer to "Installing Windows Server 2008 R2 on ProLiant 100 series servers" from this document.
