Re: HP Microserver G8 and XenServer

While Xenserver is not a supported OS on this platform, it should work. You will need to put the disk controller in plain AHCI SATA mode. There is not an hpvsa driver available for Xenserver when the controller is in Smart Array B120i mode. THe server also only supports SATA drives unless you install an add-in SMart Array
