RE: Dell Power Edge R320 can Windows & 64 be installed on this machine

No client OS (including Windows 7) is supported on Dell servers, so be ready for surprise issues.  That said, it will "probably" work.  You will need to use the 2008 R2 drivers, as no Windows 7 drivers likely exist for much of the hardware.  Odd that 2008 R2 doesn't work, where it uses the same kernel as W7x64 ...
