Shouldn't I beable to use any computer and install server 2008 operating systems as long as it meets the requirements...any help or advice would be greatly appreciated...
sorry guys I made a mistake my computer is a compaq sr5648f not an hp...
The drivers are probably not on the HP website because the computer was never sold with that operating system but you may find that the drivers for the individual devices are available from the device manufacturer's site. For example if you are missing the driver for your graphics card and you can't find the driver on the HP website, you could try going to nVidia, Intel, AMD or whoever and taking a look there.
