After a few angry days, and lots of Googling for information on how to get the HP Bluetooth Chip to work in Server 2008 Workstation, I finally found a solution!
It is as easy as BlueSoleil 🙂
Download the x32 or the x64 version, install, reboot and it will work!
Here is the link to the webpage: http://www.bluesoleil.com/index.html
Using the standard Microsoft Bluetooth stack ( http://www.windows-now.com/blogs/robert/enabling-bluetooth-on-windows-server-2008.aspx ) didn’t work for me, as there still was the MS/RFCOMM unit that didn’t want to install, and therefore I couldn’t authenticate my mobilephone in Nokia PC Suite, which is the only reason I use Bluetooth.
However, I am not sure whether it was only the BlueSoleil package that did it for me, since I had used the guide mentioned the paragraph over before, and I hadn’t uninstalled the drivers from there.
So, try the BlueSoleil package first, and if it doesn’t work, add these http://www.windows-now.com/media/p/46185.aspx files as well, and you will be good to go 🙂
Hope this will help any other poor sucker which uses HP and the integrated Bluetooth 🙂
