Windows Server 2003 std ed

Hi everyone can some one help me by telling me is Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition compatible with HP Proliant DL120 G7.  When I try to install the OS through the HP Management DVD but the only option I have is Windows Server 2008


How can I install the 2003  is it possible ?

This is not a "supported" option


if you want to try, run any firmware updates from the smart-start cd,

then try booting from a regular MS Windows Server 2003 cd

it's installable but you need the raid controller drivers - on bootup with the windows 2003 cd you have to use the f6 option (usb or floppy drive works) then you can install and it should see the hard drives.
