HP ProLiant DL160 G6 Server OS


I know this server is OLD. However, I have one and would like to put on an OS. I would rather put on a hypervisor but I can't find one that will work. I believe all the new releases are not supported. I keep installing new releases of products (SUSE, Proxmox, Ubuntu server, Esxi, XCP-ng) that will not boot after installation. Installation will go all the way through to the end and reboot, then nothing. 

Is there an OS that will work? or hypervisor? 

I do not know what info you need besides the server. If you need more info I will gladly put it in a comment or edit.

Thank you,
