optiplex 745 and windows 2003 server

  • can a 745 run windows 2003?  i'm having issues with drivers for Microsoft UUA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio.
  • what type of issue?
  • With the UAA problem i have no sound card then.  so no sound.  i'm running 2003 sp2.  i see there is a fix from microsoft but that only works for 2003 without any service packs.  this is my everyday system at work, so i need sound. 
  • u r using xp drivers to install?
  • yes i'm using xp drivers.  i can't find any for 2003.
  • I had the same problem installing the audio drivers. I setup Windows Server 2003 on an Optiplex 745 to do some testing and could not get the audio driver to install. I got all the other drivers to install fine, using a combination of XP and 2003 drivers, but it didn't like the audio driver. I finally just gave up on it because its a server and sound is not needed.
  • well, don't give up yet.
