If you want a cheap MediaSmart 470, I'll have a couple for cheap after Thanksgiving. Just need to grab the restore disc set from my parents place in Florida when I'm there.So my home server died.
Anyone aware of a NAS that will run WHS that ISNT the HP MediaSmart line? I already own the OS, so I'd prefer to not have to buy it again. Preferably something with 4 bays. Help me UF
Oh really? I just had a repurposed old box that died. I had a plan to replace it with a newer old pc, but apparently that mobo is also dead.

What happened to yours?
Yeah, I was hoping for an OS free NAS box that could run WHS. Oh well. Technically I would like to get 2008 Hypervisor up, so I can run multiple OSs on a server. Guess I'll end up doing that.Ahh in that case I wouldn't bother with a Mediasmart since you can't use your license.
Oh fuck that's sexy and tempting.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16859117007
takes 4 sata drives, has 4 usb ports, and 1 esata.
You can bump the memory to 2GB.
CPU can be swapped out with an unofficial BIOS update, if you need more power.
I'm kind of tempted to grab this and put WHS on it. Small, quiet, and low power ftw.
