Hardware Compatibility Question? RRS feed

  • Question


    I have a currently running system with an Intel D865PERL MB (Intel 865PE chipset, Intel Gig LAN, 2-SATA 1.5Mbps, 2GB DDR2, P4 3.2Ghz HT).  I would like this to become my WHS.  I would probably purchase 2-1-TB to hook up to the SATA ports. 


    Problem is that the only drivers that Intel has posted for this board go up to Windows XP.  I don't see any Windows server 2003 drivers available.  Will the XP drivers work?  This board is about 4 years old, but based on the discussions here, I believe that the system is sufficient to run WHS.


    What do you think?

    This site helped greatly in determining what will work with Windows Server 2003.  Since that's an Intel board beginning in 'D', it's not likely to have anything in the way of Server 2003 support.  I learned that one the hard way.
