HP ProLiant MicroServer G7 N54L - "real" AMD Chipset Video Driver needed

I've installed 2012 R2 to create a "mini server with NAS"

 

ISSUE:

No Video Drivers are listed on HP Support (only ones listed for 2008 R2 are for ASpeed - which is just WRONG)

This model is fitted with AMD N54L embedded SATA/RAID GPU 

Having found correct hardware using AMD Autodetect utility 

"Hardware found • AMD Turion II Neo N54L •A-Series APU"

Where is a real Video Driver, please? (Currently using deficient Microsoft driver that offers up a whole raft of wierd and incorrect resolutions)

 

Thanks

 

Brian

 

 

 

For the record

Found  and fitted 16Gb compatible memory (Kingston Technology ValueRam DDR3 1333 MHz ECC DIMM - 16 GB Memory Kit KVR1333D3E9SK2/16G)

Also successfully installed additional 3 x 3Tb NASware WD drives +1 1½Tb Barracuda, original 250Gb is in DVD tray (5 drives total)

 

Also, to get the correct SATA/RAID drivers you have to

a) Uncheck the Show Compatible Drivers box, then choose AMD SATA Driver, or

b) Look for A-Series APU RAID Drivers on the AMD Site and install from there (N54L is Embedded RAID GPU Chip)

Now getting 120Mbps disk to disk, spinning, 160Mbps RAMdisk

OK, found a hardware reference page on Wikia.com (http://n40l.wikia.com/wiki/Base_Hardware_N54L)

This reveals that the embedded graphics are an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 - downloading driver package and ignoring Catalyst, successfully installed, now properly recognizes Displays and understands their capabilities. (Hu-bloody-rrah!)
