HP Proliant Driver Help

By kentontator ·
I am trying to reformat a HP Proliant xw460c Workstation.

It has a scsi drive so windows has to load additional drivers I am having trouble finding any that work for this here is the web site. I am loading windows 64 bit btw.

thats where they have their drivers but I none that seem for what I want.

Any help would be great!

thanks

All I see are Server drivers....that 64 bit Server 2003 driver <i>might</i> work....it's pretty close to XP.

That was the issue I had with the "Rick" computer Santee

was teasing me about...it was a PowerEdge he needed XP on....I had a hard time finding drivers for the RAID controller....I was supposed to have the computer for 2 weeks so I could set him up a cluster....2 days in, he came yelling & screeming (with his little man syndrom) that it should be finished.....I totally lost it.....

it was fun...

It's been my experience server hardware doesn't like you to switch their OS from what it was when it was ordered.

yeah this thing is a pain, I have gotten it to work before though...and only lost the floppy disk that had all those drivers. So now trying to re-find them I have no idea where I found them in the first place.
