DL380 G2 and XP

Can Win XP run on an DL380 G2 machine? I keep getting no hard drives found.6 drives on board.Will I need a driver for the 5i raid board for the os to load? Maybe and Linux os would be better?

Windows XP is not supported on Proliant servers. You can try to use Windows 2003 SmartArray 5i driver:

Or you can install SuSE Linux, Red Hat Linux, Caldera OpenLinux or Sun Solaris.

Yes, you will need to install a drive for the controller during the install. 2003 server driver may or 2000 drives can work. If you have trouble, check into the manufactures site for a drive for their chipset controllers
