Install win xp x64 on an old mp150 G3 Server

Hello All,

 

Can some knowlegable person here inform me if it is possible to install win xp 64 bit os on an old HP Prolient MP150 G3 server? My boss upgraded to another server and this machine is in the cupboard and still works and I want to use it as a spare workstation. I know it may not be straightforward or even possible but I am good with computers and I don't mind tinkering around to get it working. If it's is not possible can someone tell me why?

 

TIA

 

Darc

Why not power it up and try? Nothing to lose. Why XP though, install Ubuntu. That's the 32 bit version I assume the old server is 32 bit as your trying to load XP?

Thanks,

 

Yes I will try a few things as I mess with this - it's just that I have a copy of win XP x64 - that's the 64 bit edition. I think the server is a 64 bit machine but not sure. I'll give Ubuntu a go too if it doesn't work!
