I am trying to determine if an HP DL360 G4 Server with a 3.0 ghz XEON processor will meet the system requirements for Windows Server 2008 R2.  The system requirements for the processor states:  "Minimum: 1.4 GHz (x64 processor)".  Thanks for any insights!

Depends on the XEON model #.  I think G4 uses Xeon with x64.  If you don't have the info in your documenation, use CPU-Z to find out:

If you want to be sure of sure give us the part number of your server.
It's not really an install if you download their zipped executable...  OK, so what's the CPU info displayed on your "My Computer" > Properties?

This server can run server 2008 std 64-bit, and I can see no reason based on the documentation in the link below that it would not work with R2 (although HP do not specifically list it in their matrix - I believe this purely to be an omission on their part);
The processor should be capable without any problems.
