Don't know if that CPU is 64 bit - check it - if it is, it should run fine.

Correction, it IS 64 bit - http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11976_div/11976_div.html indicates Windows XP x64 is an option, so it MUST be 64 bit.

32 bit.

So I should go for "Microsoft Windows Server 2008" instead ?

What are you talking about - I posted a link to specs that indicate it IS 64 bit.

If you WANT to use 32 bit than you have to use the pre-R2 version of 2008

Your processor is 64bit so it means it could support and run windows server 2008 R2 , but you can also install 32 bit operating system as well, it would be better to install 64 bit OS then 32 bit if you have
