    If you can get a Bluetooth adapter that has Windows XP drivers then it might work.

    I have one. How do I go about installing the Magic Mouse/Apple Wireless Keyboard onto the Windows Server 2003 machine?

    Thanks. :)

    1. On your computer, open the Bluetooth program. The Bluetooth program is usually found either in Control Panel or the Start menu.
    2. Press and hold the Connect button on the underside of the device. If your device has a battery indication light, it will blink green/red to indicate the device is discoverable.
    3. In the Bluetooth program, use the option to add a new device. The exact verbiage may vary slightly between Bluetooth programs and versions.
    4. Follow the instructions on the screen.
    5. If you are connecting a keyboard and are prompted to configure a passkey, let the program choose a passkey for you.
    6. If you are connecting a mouse and are prompted for a passkey, select No passkey. Microsoft Bluetooth mouse devices will not work with a random passkey.

    Thanks for your help.

    Bluetooth isn't on the machine.

    Get a different Bluetooth adapter for your computer, or get a different keyboard & mouse.
