I have a Dell PowerEdge SC 440 that I got from a computer school that closed. When I got it, it was running XP. I used it for 2 years then XP stopped loading. I installed XP professional but I was missing 3 drivers. Chatted w/Dell and was told that Windows XP is not a supported operating system on the Power Edge SC 440 platform. Server 2003 would be supported but server 2003 is extinct and not available from Microsoft or Dell. He said that this computer shipped w/o an OS so the school installed their own. I was able to load a video driver and a chipset but can't fix the ethernet.
Additonal info: The network adapter is based on the Broadcom BCM5754 adapter chipset.
I'm wondering if I install Server 2003 would I be able to get on the internet? That is my main goal w/the computer. I'm using it for homeschool. Confused how it connected and ran great for 2 years and now I can't find a driver that is compatible w/XP. Any help is greatly appreciated and thank you for your time!
