    Hi,

    I've ordered a trial copy of WHS which I hope will replace my NAS.

    In my quest for ultra low power consumption, I was wondering if anyone had tried booting WHS from a Flash card.

    I know with standard Windows operating systems, there can be problems with the paging file being thrashed, but would this still be a problem on WHS ?

    My ultimate goal is to use standard SATA Disks used to hold only my Media and backups whlist the OS is booted silently and quickly from Flash.

    I don't know how realistic / stupid this sounds.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks
