Installation of Windows 2003 R2 w/SP2 32bit on a HP Pavilion Elite PC i7
Posted on 2010-09-10
I need to install Windows 2003 R2 standard (w/sp2) on a workstation to support NComputing (ncomputing.com). NComputing is a virtual desktop application. According to the manufacture of NComputing only supports 32bit enviroments. I contacted them and got a suggestion for processor, they suggested using an HP workstation with the i7 processor. I purchased the hardware (HP HPE-250f) and attempted to install Windows server 32 bit. Right away I received a blue screen. I have since attempted to install the 64 bit of Windows to verify it was NOT the media/version of windows. My hunch is it's a driver issue with the hard disk? Of Course, there's no drivers listed on HP's site specifically for Windows 2003 Server and when I download the chip drivers I can't locate the driver file to install the additional hard disk controller drivers. Any suggestions/ideas are much appreciated. Thanks!
