Hacking NAS Box Thecus N5200 to install Windows Home Server

Here’s a perfectly reasonable Linux NAS Box “N5200” from Thecus, that was hacke to install Windows Home Server. How the hell did I do it? Well, I did a bit of research into the hardware first. The mainboard and network cards are fairly stock standard Intel stuff, so that’s not a worry – the biggest concern was the custom SATA controller – which is apparently a Marvell MV88SX6081 8-port SATA II PCI-X Controller. Thankfully, this chip is used on the Supermicro AOC-SAT2-MV8. I’ve included where to get this driver from the list of other hardware components needed, writes Jaymz.
