I'm still struggling with this system. While I am waiting from a 'supported' OS to torrent (RHEL in the guise of CentOs), I though I'd try some 'legacy' OS.

Xp installed OK with AHCI disabled. Win98se couldn't write a new partition table. FreeDos wouldn't install, no error message. I conclude that although FS seem to be selling these off as out-of-date systems, they are too new for FBSD and have no backwards compatibility. I'm beginning to see why they are so cheap.

Serves me right for not researching them beforehand. Such a shame as they ooze mechanical quality. Any ideas for sources of information about these systems, other than the forum on the FS website?
