Dell Poweredge 2900

Have client running server 2003.  Installed by software company they use for practice management.   They are being told they need to upgrade to Server 2008 or server 2012.  But also must replace servers as he PowerEdge 2900 could only run 2003.  Supposedly no drivers or updates fro PowerEdge 2900 to allow running any software other than 2003.  I find this hard to believe.  I have found no evidence either way, hoping someone knows more that I do?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can run 2008 on PE2900 but you have to make sure it supports 2012 or no.
I was having issue running windows 2012 on PE2900 due drivers issue.
