Drivers for Saphire HD5450 1GB Gfx Card for Windows Server 2008 R2

Hi guys,

I recently purchased a HP Proliant N36L MicroServer and a Saphire HD 5450 1GB gfx card to go inside it. I've successfully installed Windows Server 2008 R2 standard edition but I can't find any drivers for my card? I can ouput HDMI to my TV but I can only use a resolution of 800 x 600.

I don't think this card supports Server O/S as there website only shows xp / vista / 7 drivers. I'd like to stick with Server 2008 if I can find a driver but if not is my only option to install windows 7 or can I use a windows 7 driver on Server 2008 o/s?

I look forward to your suggestions

Agreed - the correct W7 ATI drivers (matching the bit version) from Sapphire should work with Server 2008

You're already aware I guess that the PCI-E slot on this server box has its power limited to 25W max draw?  Should be OK with the HD 5450 as it's a pretty efficient card but just in case you start seeing problems when it gets stressed.

Hi Guys, I've already tried using the win 7 drivers for this but they don;t seem to work. The install go through okay but nothing new appears in the device manager, in fact the 5450 isn't even showing but i know its definately working as i've connected my tv to it.

Managed to get this working by installing the drivers through device manager rather then using the setup.exe from the downloaded file
