Hi elkont


Greeting for the day!!


Hp is not tested the Windows Server 2008 on the unit and does not have the drivers in the HP Site,

Unit is shipped with Skylake Processor and its latest technology processor so while installing the Legacy OS and System board integrated with USB 3.0 Ports because of that USB Mouse and KB might not work

On best effort basis you can try this steps, please inject the USB 3.0 drivers to the OS and then try to install the OS and check
