    Smile HP Proliant Microserver

    I just got one of these today, I am very happy with it but was wondering if anyone has put windows 7 on it? I was thinking of putting windows 7 on the 250gb drive supplied, upgrading the ram to 8gb, adding 4*2TB drives and a graphics card and using it as HTPC and a storage solution. Does it have enough power to work with this set up?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    I briefly had mine working with Windows Server 2008 R2 and it was fine with it. Windows 7 might have a slightly higher overhead, but I doubt you'll notice.
    Idling with Server 2008 R2 it only used 22W of power as well!

    I think I'll give it a try, if it doesn't work I'll experiment with a different OS. The good thing about putting windows 7 on it would mean I don't have to transfer data from current disks, I can just plug them in.

    Thanks for the reply.
