I bought a s5520hc server board with 8 xeon 5620 processors and windows server 2012 to run as a terminal server.

I recieved everything and installed the Server 2012...and it looks like there are no drivers but the RAID ones.  Checked the download center and its listed them as TBD since posted 8 months ago.

My question is, can I run the terminal server without chipset, NIC and videocard drivers? what options do I have...besides returning it (that option may not even be an adoption since it was/is a special order)...Not sure if I can even downgrade to server 2008.
