Installing Windows Home Server 2011 on a HP ex495 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Folks,

    I've read a ton of posts, both here, and at mediasmartserver.net

    I just got a mint ex495 off of ebay and wanted to put whs2011 on it.

    I copied the contents of the OEM install DVD to a usb drive.  Added the cfg.ini file.

    and all I get for my trouble is a flashing red, white server health light.

    before I lose what' left of my mind, what on earth am I doing wrong?
