    Convert RM SmartCache2 to PC

    Our RM SmartCache2 has recently been replaced with what is described as a Linux Espresso Server. The SmartCache2 had done well and certainly still has a good bit of life in it yet so we want to convert it so that it can become a workstation. The thinking being to put XP on it. The spec looks pretty good, seems to have 2 120GB HD and 1GB of memory but one of the HD's is installed in the bay where a CD / DVD would normally sit. Anyone already converted one of these please. If so how did you set about the task and what use did you put the converted machine to?

    Hey speccy - The SmartCache 2 runs on Linux so if you want to install XP your going to have to get your XP CD out and to a full install.

    As you say it has no CDROM drive, but you could either take the top off and plug a CDROM drive in temporarily, or use a USB CDROM drive if you ahve one (very handy!).

    Once you get into XP set up it should happily nuke the linux install for you and hey presto - XP.

    The only things you may need are the drivers for the Smartcache - eg video, lan, sound drivers. Either go to RM.com type your Smartcache serial in and download, or use google and the motherboard model number.
