    Hey,

    I have an ac 100 mini server from my business. I want to set it up at my home as a network server to keep all my files safe from my various ventures. I am trying to find out if I can run a small SSD for OS on it and 4 hot swappable drives as well? I am planning on putting 4 drives in the computer doing a mirror type raid application for redundancy.

    Any information would be great. I have a 120 gb SSD I can install in it for the OS now.

    @kojack well you could use eSATA for SSD, or put a pcie to SATA card (since it doesn't support NVME) and try to fit your SSD inside stealing power from somewhere... Also, make sure to load updated CPU Microcode one way or another, before/during OS boot - AFAIK this is thing didn't receive Spectre BIOS updates, thus is NOT secure without it.

    Thanks, I will have a look and see what I can rig up. Thanks for the microcode tip too!
