Considering an HP MediaSmart

Post#1 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 4:36 pm

My current "server' is actually just an old dell desktop will hard drives stuffed inside any way I could fit them so I feel a need to do something about this. I have been looking at HP mediasmart PCs on ebay but before I buy, I want to make sure that it will run WHS 2011, and I won't have any performance issues because of the machine's age. I don't plan to transcode any content or let it out of my LAN even. Will this machine work for my needs? Can I upgrade some components if necessary, and How do I Install a fresh OS on a server that has no video out?
