Re: Home Server Build

said by rustydusty:

All arrays will be doing hardware based, through the board.

If you decide to go with ESXi please post your results back and the board you go with if you are able to use the RAID from the motherboard. All the boards I've tried so far with RAID built in are considered software RAID by ESXi unless you're using a board with SAS RAID.

You are talking some besides an actual Server, ex Poweredge?

There are one or two (or some) ASUS 990(FX) board(s) that have this feature:

Well gents, assembled everything and went to fire it up, and I can't get any video whatsoever. I've tried numerous PCIe cards with no luck. I've tried some cheap dell's, to Zotac gtx 360's to 8800GTX with no luck. Figured a standard card would work but I can't get any video to save my life! I've tried all 3 PCIe slots on the board with no luck on any card. Any help greatly appreciated.

Memory didn't seem to be in place. I figured it would beep if there was issues with anything, especially memory. Oh well, got the raid 10 array built, esxi being installed. Post some pics afterwards
