Jetway Mini-ITX J7F2 System RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guys,

     

    my project for windows home server will be based around the Jetway Mini ITX motherboard, model number J7F2 with 1GB ram.

     

    initially a 20 gb disk for system and 3 sata 320 gb drives and 2 x 80 gb usb drives to plug in to the home server.

     

    I think this will make a good combo of home server software and hardware, as power consumption will be low!

     

    anyone else used home server with mini itx boards and if so how was your experiances???

     

    Cheers

  • Rich,

    The recommendation is, that you use your largest capacity hard drive as your system drive. At a minimum, 80gb is required for the system in RC1 and from comments in the forum, a 'smaller' initial drive, leads to problems uring the back-up process.

    The rest of your system should be just about do-able if you don't intend streaming media to or from.

     

    HTH,
