      Hi,

      so i make my first post here and use it also to introduce the first machine where i
      have R2 running as workstation.

      But first about me. I have all Gameboys, some Nintendo consoles, Xbox, Xbox360,
      Sega Mega Drive, Commodore C64, Amiga 500 a WHS1 and still Win95 and 98 running
      on two machines. One with a 3dfx Voodoo 5500. So I’m a technique-freak since I’m a kid.
      There is more stuff here but to much to list it 🙂

      So here is the machine where i test R2 as workstation.
      A HP HDX 9000 Dragon. Its a 20″ laptop: http://www.notebookjournal.de/tests/gallery/hp-pavilion-hdx9270eg—8800m-gts-438

      Hello Paradise, welcome at the win2008workstation forums! 😉

      Sounds like a nice hobby, collecting all kinds of gaming hardware from antique to ultra modern 🙂

      Didn’t know such laptops exist but they are really a desktop replacement with their adjustable display. Also, useful list of installation details, that will probably help various people :geek:

      See you around!
