The trick is to show that it’ll be cheaper to consolidate. Show the power savings, man hours saved (so that you can work on other things), space savings in the data center, thin provisioning savings (increasing utilization), etc. Break it down to money, execs like talking about money.

If you are struggling to run an application on the hardware you have re-provisioning system resources will only be a short term fix. Looking at the spec you put up I would strongly recommend jumping onto the sandy bridge bandwagon. Then you won’t have this issue.

Installing RAID drivers during the install of Windows 2003 requires that you use an actual floppy drive. You’ll need to purchase either an internal floppy drive (good luck finding one) or a USB floppy drive. No other option will work.

Windows XP Professional supports two types of disk storage: basic and dynamic. Basic disk storage uses partition-oriented disks.
