    Guys,

    Can anyone help me out with a Solaris Express 11 install.

    I have done the usbcopy method to boot from USB but I make changes etc and reboot and they are all missing again.

    I have also tried installing from CD to the USB drive and its extremely slow, unusuable.

    What are you guys using to run Solaris Express on?

    I'm running OpenIndiana (Solaris fork) with the stock Microserver NIC (some Broadcom job.. presents as bge0) and am having to manually start the network connection every time I boot. Is this because I haven't configured something right or should I just go get an Intel NIC?

    Does she have her own PC? Install the uTorrent extension for chrome on it. Then all you do is right click on a torrent and choose 'add to utorrent' and it will download and send it to the Microserver and start downloading.

    Then just put a shortcut on her desktop to the download directory and a link to Webui so she can watch the progress.

    No need for her to ever touch the Microserver.

    Thanks for the idea, so I hacked the ROM to enable the 5th SATA port and connected a old 120GB 2.5" drive I had lying a round. All good so far, bios ok and at windows install it recognised it as well.

    Selected this new drive (Disk 2) to install windows, and I can see Disk0: 2drives in raid 0 and Disk1 which is 2 drives in raid 1.

    But, like before at the first win7 setup reboot it crashed again! When I look at the drive partitions I can see that W7 setup has partitioned Disk0 again!!
    WTF is Win7 doing.

    Oh well, 8 hours so far on W7!!!

    Any ideas guys how I can fix this??? Thanks

    Pull all drives bar the 120

    Install windows 7

    Check the boot order of drives

    Once it's up and running shutdown and add your other drives

    Reboot

    The client GUI works on Mac, Windows and Linux. The server daemon works on Mac, many Linux servers, and a few embedded systems (NAS's).

    Pully my hair over this issue...

    FreeNAS 0.7.2 kernel: bge0: watchdog timeout -- resetting

    This would appear to be a common FreeBSD fault, so it's no surprise that it happens on FreeNAS 0.7.2 Sabanda (revision 6469) (I've tried many revisions, all the same or worse with FreeNAS stability and restarting!).

    This is occurring on a HP ProLiant MicroServer N36L with embedded network interface on motherboard.

    bge0: <HP NC107i PCIe Gigabit Server Adapter, ASIC rev. 0x5784100>
    <BCM5784 10/100/1000baseTX PHY>

    kernel: bge0: link state changed to UP
    kernel: bge0: link state changed to DOWN
    kernel: bge0: watchdog timeout -- resetting

    not much good for a Network Attached Storage device, keep reseting it's networking.

    Any ideas, other than adding a new network interface card?

    Dammit, looks like i'm going to have to install windows to get a proper dlna server. I have freenas 0.7.2 running really well off a USB stick, only trouble is that the UPnP media servers are not compatible with WiseLink Pro on our Samsung TV's, whereas the TVMOBili DLNA software I have on my PC is running an absolute treat :(
