    Well, seeing as how the EPIA series board wasn't really meant as a server, and Win2k3 SERVER wasn't really meant to be a desktop OS, it probably means that you aren't likely to be getting a patch for your board anytime soon.

    i'm stupid. i got a usb 1.1 "active usb repeater cable" because i thought it would be nice to boost the signal in case i might get any interferance from my cars electrical system. it never said whether it was 1.1 or 2.0 so i assumed it wouldn't matter. well its recognized as a transparent usb hub and that would be the cause of all of this i'm sure. I haven't gotten to test it out but i'll let you guys know. i'm going to chop off the female end with the boosting circuitry and hardwire it directly into my 2.0 hub and have a relay to cut my 5v line when my comps off so it won't drain my battery...

    I still think 2k3 is better When converted to be used as a desktop OS that is. It has a smaller memory footprint than XP when I tweak it out...
    CarPC install is starting to come along again...

    Amen to smaller memory footprints!
    Win2k3 IS a pretty sweet desktop, when it's modded to do the job, but I've always had reservations about making something that was intended for one job do something else. For example, if you install Linux, and find yourself relying on WINE just to run the stuff you need to run, then Windows should never have left the desktop, IMO. Hehehehe...
    Good luck!

    I was messing around with W2k as a desktop for a while - changed my mind though even after modding it as I'm yet to be convinced it's any faster than XP once all the same software is on it, it felt faster to start with but doesn't any nice clean fresh install once it's been sorted out?
