Installing server

Today I'm putting in the server that will manage our blade systems. This is my first Windows 2003 server install here. I had one W2K3 install at OldJob about a year ago, so the process wasn't totally lost of me. It's going pretty well, as I get to deal with the HP way of installing servers.

Though I did find something interesting. Unless I'm missing it totally, HP doesn't have a nice feature Dell has had for years. Dell has a web-site where you can plop in the service-tag number and get back a shipping manifest of what shipped with the server. This is especially nice when I'm not the one that specified the server in the first place and need to see what kind of memory came with it, or what OS shipped with it in the first place. I haven't been able to find that with HP yet.
