server 2008 r2 and Proliant ML 110 G5


I have a Proliant ML110 G5 and my question is:

Can i install windows server 2008 r2?

Are there certified hp drivers?

Thank you for your support.

Yes, and yes.

Just make certain you have a decent amount of RAM in it.
Fast drives and a decent controller doesn't hurt, either. (I use P200 controllers in mine. You also need a cable assy 'Int 4Lane SAS/SATA' 457892-001)
If you install from DVD, you may find that the setup program can't read the DVD without loading a driver. I have no clue as to which driver works. I just plugged in a USB-based DVD-ROM...
(The CD/DVD drive in the server will be recognised by W2008R2 without problems. It's just the install system that doesn't like it)
