You might try this driver

I've had some luck using various Windows 2000 drivers with XP

Re: DL360 G5 XP install

Jimmy's link is for 5x - 6x controller and that's a p400

so try an older driver for that p400 like this one

Re: DL360 G5 XP install

I successfully installed Windows XP Pro on HP Compaq DL360 G5 servers. Here is how:
1)The HP p400i RAID controller does NOT have an XP driver. I removed the p400i and installed an LSI SAS3081E-R controller in pci slot 1. I installed a 3ft internal mini-SAS cable, Tripp Lite Partno: S506-003 to reach the LSI controller.
2) I used a Compaq USB floppy drive Partno: 254304-001 to load the LSI controller XP driver ver: 8-2008. Note: our other USB floppy drives failed. 3)Installed the Broadcom BCM57089C NetXtreme II GigE driver for XP for the nc373i. 4) Installed the ATI ES1000 video driver for XP for the server video.
There have been many applications requiring us to load XP on HP Compaq DL servers. HP should include the XP drivers for their server components on their web site to save valuable time researching.

Re: DL360 G5 XP install

To install XP on a DL360 G5 go to HP's website and download the drivers for Win2000 - storage, save to floppy then do the F6 thing for third party drivers during setup. When prompted hit S to install third party drivers, insert floppy and hit enter.
From the available drivers select the P400i contoller driver and your off to the races.
I am however having issues tracking down drivers for onboard NIC's that work with XP.
Anyone knows of any let me know.
