Re: Installing xp on a proliant ml350 G3 server

First off I have to say the obvious, XP is not a supported OS on an ML350. That being said it depends on what model you have and what storage controller is in the system.

According to the specs, either of these controllers could be in the system.

Storage Controller
Integrated Dual Channel Wide Ultra3 SCSI Adapter
 
Smart Array 641 Controller (Standard in Array Models with 2.8 GHz or greater processors only)


If your system has the Smart Array controller there is not a driver for XP, but you can try using the Windows 2000 driver.

hi,

normaly you could install linux with xen support if the xen support your cpu and create virtual host, and inside the virtual host you could install what you want.
