    Does anyone know if the HP mediasmart software has been installed on a non HP system yet? I know people have found ways to get the 2.5 software onto the 47X series.

    HP MediaSmart Servers are sleek, quiet Windows Home Server devices
    You can put WHS on whatever you want
    Just check this thread

    I've tried a few of the HP mediasmart add-in's
    Most of them work OK, but the hardware dependent ones error out.
    (my guess is they will work on the Acer, as its basically the same Hardware)

    I've not been able to get hold of the complete HP Mediasmart Software packages, so i can't say about the other parts.

    Hi Sebus,

    I think phasezero was talking more about the 2.5 update.
    Thats the one that adds real features to MSS.

    I'd be really impressed if manage to find any links to that update. ;)

    Any luck get the ISO to work ?

    I've been messing with the MSS updates, but it seems we still have one missing.

    Thanks for the link Sebus,
    It got me most of the way through the update. :)

    Some very good info. I'm stuck on trying to get a bootable usb stick to work. I followed instructions to set a usb flash drive up and am able to select the flash drive for boot on my mobo but the system just ends up hanging on "verifying dmi pool data". Trying my other flash drives atm.

    Well it took a long time but i finally got everything setup. I kept running into different issues the whole way but i'm glad its all finished. Looks like all the software works fine. My only issue right now is the hardware status notifications about my cpu too hot or voltage problems. This was expected since i'm not using the same mobo as the mediasmart servers. Just need to figure out how to get rid of them. Ignore works for now.
