I recently built myself a neat little home server. I wanted it to be small compared to a desktop PC, while having a lot of storage space and a reasonable speed to manage smaller tasks. Here’s what I bought: Components Case: Fractal Design Array R2 300W ITX Mainboard: Asrock E350M1/USB3 APU: AMD E-350 (2 × 1.6 GHz) [Wikipedia] RAM: 2 × GeIL 4GB DDR3-1066 Hard Drives: 4 × WD20EARX (Western Digital, 2 TB) Installing Debian I’m installing Wheezy from a FAT-formatted USB stick, which I created with unetbootin and the B4 Wheezy Amd64 netinst image. When I tried installing it from an Ext4-USB stick, it wouldn’t mount correctly.
