The problem is that it is highly unlikely that Server 2008 drivers were (or ever will be) written for your laptop. If you really must run Server 2008 on your laptop Vista drivers should work. But for your situation using a virtual machine is probably a better option. When using a virtual machine it doesn't matter what your real hardware is because client operating systems see only the emulated hardware.

Drivers for laptops should be obtained from the manufacturer. If they don't have them it is likely they don't exist.

It is hardly surprising that the Server 2008 install disk did not have drivers for your laptop. Server operating systems are rarely installed on laptops. Check on the Dell website for Vista drivers.

You'd be far better off re-installing Windows7 on your Dell and running Windows Server in a VM. For example, it works fine on VirtualBox.
