ProLiant 1600 w/ onboard NIC & Windows 2003


I am trying to install Windows Small Business Server 2003 on a test network, with a Compaq Proliant 1600 as the server. The on-board NIC works great in Windows 2000 - it's a Netelligent 10/100TX PCI Embedded UTP/AUI Controller.

The problem is that the Windows 2003 portion of the install (before I ever get to the SBS part) bombs out because of there being no driver for the NIC. I've looked on Compaq's site and it shows that Windows 2003 is not supported for this machine (which is understandable). But is there any NIC driver available for Windows 2003, or do I just have to buy a 3rd-party NIC for this box?

Hi Tim,
Here is the link for NIC drivers download for W2K3. If this does not work then obviously you will have to install a NIC which is supported by W2K3.
