Re: compaq proliant 2500r

Even though XP is not supported on any proliant server, that doesn't mean it won't work... You can try to upgrade it to a multiprocessor hal by going to device manager, then computer, selecting whatever is currently there, then properties, driver, update driver, install from a specific location, select don't search, then next...
