Trial install on laptop, display problem

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I am trying to install my trial copy of Server 2003 on my laptop, so I can
    study better with my busy life. 2003 installs fine, but the problem is
    getting the display to look right. It is using the standard vga driver, the
    2000 driver will not work. I have installed the XP driver but it just blue
    screens when I boot. I have read on the internet that there might be a way
    to install the xp driver to work, something to do with activating the Direct
    x, but not sure what else to do. Does anyone have any experience in getting
    drivers to work under 2003? My display adapter is and ATI Radeon M7 (7500?).
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, as working on the vga driver it is
    blured and giving me a huge head ache! :eek:(

    Kind regards,

    Howard Clarke

  2. You could always go with VMWare (if you have the RAM on your system).
