Install Windows XP SP3 on HP ProLiant DL320 G6

I am trying to install Windows XP Professional  SP3 on DL320 G6 Server. I know HP doesnt
support Windows XP. I have integrated the drivers for RAID, B110i controller for Windows
Server 2003 along with the XP-SP3 CD and tried to boot but it is not detecting the hard drives
to install the OS on. I do not have a floppy drive, so booting from XP SP3 CD and then
press F6 and inserting the floppy disk with drivers is not possible!

If anyone out here suggest the  procedure please help me.


Re: Install Windows XP SP3 on HP ProLiant DL320 G6


You are right, HPE does not support Windows XP SP3 on DL320 G6 server.

You can try inserting the drivers using an USB floppy drive, but HPE does not guarantee it will work.

HPE does not guarantee the server behaviour and there will be no further support on server if anything goes wrong.

Please install the supported server OS on the system for proper behaviour.
