HP xw4300 Workstation & Small Business Server 2003

I'm trying to install Small Business Server 2003 on my HP xw4300 Workstation. But it will Blue Screen for me. Probably due to no SATA driver for SBS. Is it possible to install Small Business Server 2003 on xw4300? And where can i find drivers if so.

XW are workstations product, not server. So first, keep in mind that HP doesn't certify XW for Server OS use.

You must have a driver to give at install to have support of SATA drives. Your SATA controller is ICH7, check on intel website if you found it for 2003. If not, call MS as you have a support with them when you buy 2003.
