A customer wants to run xp pro on an hp proliant dl120 g6
Xp will install but only starts in safe mode. Very few services start. I can start them manually but they do not start when computer restarts even though set to automatic
I downloaded the broadcom driver to make the lan work, but network connection wizard fails to complete. Having started net work services I can configure tcpip but don't get any further.
I tried F8 and 'start windows normally' but it still comes up in safe mode without actually stating that it is.
I also need a video driver, but haven't looked for one yet due to the network problems.
I realise the HP market this box for 2003 and 2008 server, but there is a good reason for wanting to run XP on it.
How do I get it to start services automatically and where is the correct XP video driver for it.
