  2. Being a freaking tard, that was my problem. I sat there and tried every conceivable bios setting and nothing worked. Although the error message did change so I felt like I was making some progress. I moved the flash drive into every slot(Or so I thought. ) and I also would unplug the usb keyboard when I was done tweaking the bios thinking maybe it was causing a conflict. Finally I took a break after about 2+ hours of frustration and when I came back I noticed two other usb ports next to the Ethernet Port. Plugged in the flash drive booted up beautifully! My only defense is that the mobo was open box and didn't come with an I/O shield pannel and the two usb ports next to the ethernet didn't look the same as the others. I will take some picts of my bios settings, I don't remember them because I tweaked them so much I don't remember what was there when I finally put it in the right slot. Lol, if I didn't laugh I'd cry...
  3. I second the motion of easy of use! I am a total Linux Newb, having only installed Ubuntu on a laptop once before. If you use recommend hardware with documented bios settings you literally could have this up and running in 30mins or less. I choose to go take a chance on some almost undocumented Mobo which still would have worked if I had just looked at my I/O panel a little bit better, and I paid the price of 3 Hours of frustration. Read the Wiki and the Manual and you should be set. To sum up: if you can get into your bios and can use the internet you can setup unRaid!
  4. Interesting, I have heard a few other positive comments of late that Vista has some redeeming qualities. When I have had to use it or adminstrate it I am hate, but I am getting ready to take the plunge and install Vista Ultimate as my HTPC. I downloaded Total Commander and used to move about 150GB+ of files in the past few days, I must say that the abillity to 'pause' is invaluiable and I like the 'speed limit' function although I don't really use it. I will check out Terra Copy and Vice Versa next. If I have time(Read. Probably not gonna happen) I will write a Comparison.
  5. Basically the Subject says it all. I am trying to find a better program than Windows Explorer for large(1GB+) file transfers. I have found that Win Explorer to be less than reliable and when I queue up a big transfer I don't want to babysit it. I downloaded xplorer2, but I haven't got a chance to test it yet. Any other suggestions or two bits?
  6. It works! I had a #$#^ing time of it to get it to boot, but I finally got it. I will post my bios settings as soon I am sure that it will be stable.
