comment Installing Windows Server on a compact flash card
The underlying issue is that I have this low-power (~20W) piece of hardware that would be perfect for a remote server running some basic administration tasks, but the power supply doesn't have any SATA power cables so the only straightforward way to boot it is from a CF card. All our important servers are running on a VMware cluster backed by a SAN; this is more of a tertiary backup, so I'm ok with something a little hack-y.

comment Installing Windows Server on a compact flash card
Thanks for the info. Do you think this is a "Really Doesn't Work" kind of thing or just "Not Officially Supported"? The CF drive shows up in the BIOS as an IDE device so I'm not even sure how Windows knows it's removable. It's not like this is a USB drive someone is going to pull out in the middle of operation.

comment Disconnected Network Drive
Out of curiosity, what was the vendor of the problematic service? What kinds of things was it doing?

comment Multiple electrical supplies in a server room
The building is a small commercial office building, not a datacenter. By "service" I mean a metered electric utility connection. We have 2 sets of wires coming into the building from the grid

comment NAS Migration: Preserve “Previous Versions” shadow copies
It sounds like we really should work with EMC to solve this, which is fine. But I still feel like if the NAS is serving these copies in a way that Windows can understand, there must be a 3rd party tool that can read & write them as well??

comment Laptop using DHCP lease from another network
No, the DHCP-assigned address it's using is on a random subnet -- not one of ours, and the IP address does not appear in our DHCP lease table. The gateway IP address is also not ours. The laptop seems to be continuing to use a DHCP lease from a completely unrelated network.
