HP Proliante 320 g8 and Windows 7

I know that HP Proliante 320 g8 and HP Proliante 320 g8 v2 do not supported Windows 7, but our company already has bought these computers and license Windows 7. I can install Windows 7, but I do not have drivers. More precisely Windows wants drivers only on chipset and usb. Is it possible find this? May be i can install drivers for others Proliants?

p.s. sorry for my english

The only ProLiant HP supports Windows 7 on is the WS460c G6 / Gen8 Workstation Blade.

You would normally be able to get the drivers you need there, but the DL320e is a desktop wrapped in a server chassis. So the drivers may not be common between them.

Can you post the PCI Vendor codes for the drivers you need?

Even if this works, I would not run an unsupported OS on the hardware.

Hope this helps!
