Proliant 350 G2

I have a Proliant ML350 G2 running Windows NT4 Server, loaded using SmartStart V.5.30. I need to upgrade to Windows2000 Server.
Has anybody done this and did it work fine, were there any pitfalls to look out for... and if so what version of SmartStart did you use.
If I need to go to Windows 2003, does anybody know whether this will work with a G2 server.
Thanks

Hi

I think smart start 7.x version will work to get windows 2003 installed.

I didn`t migrate, but clean instalation od Win 2003 Server works fine. No problems found. Using Smartstart 7.10.

Dusko,

Is your Server ML350 G2 ?? As I am getting conflicting information as to whether the G2 will take SmartStart 7.10 and Server 2003.

Thanks

ProLiant ML350 G2 (1133-1400MHz ) & Microsoft Windows Server 2003 is listed at HP support @ http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/locate/69_2588.html with all the drivers and support packs, so you will always be able to install it manually if necessary.

As for SmartStart 7.x assisted installation, support is for servers that have ROM-based setup utilities (RBSU). It would seem that your "retired" ML350 G2 is supported. View page 2 of the following support matrices.
