If the hardware isn't supported, it doesn't work so you change gear to get it to work. This will confound and confuse those new to Windows Server versions as it is very different from other Windows where you hunt down drivers.
This issue is and was covered in Windows Server training so I have to guess you have skipped training.
As to the copy the driver. No, it's not Windows 1.0 to 10. It's that different. Ask HP if they have a fix but usually it's just the wrong server hardware.
I have a new HP ProLiant DL360 G10. I am trying to load Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with Legacy BIOS (Yes, I know server 2008 is being discontinued at the end of the year and UEFI is the new standard). When I get to the Windows install the mouse and keyboard don’t work. The mouse and keyboard work fine if I go into BIOS settings so I know they are good. I am not using a KVM and I tried both front and back USP ports.
I did a search and it seems I need to include the mouse and keyboard drivers on the install DVD. Can someone point me to an article with the steps to do this?
I assume it’s not as easy as simply copy the driver to the DVD when I create the Windows 2008 DVD?
Obviously I am not a server guy but I need to get this going again.
