    Ideally use Windows Server 2003 drivers. Windows XP drivers can work, but are not guaranteed to. Also you may need to install XP drivers in compatibility mode, if the setup program rejects to install on the WHS platform. To do this, right click the setup program, select Properties and on the Compatibility tab set the compatibility mode to Windows XP.

  • Based on what I see on ASUS's site it does not support Windows Server 2003 Drivers.  did you load XP Drivers?
