    Hi all-
    I have an X10SLL-F, 3.7ghz i3, 16gb ECC, with a 420w power supply.

    I use this server primarily to run FreeNAS (flash drive on the internal USB port) along with a 4-disk raidz setup. But, I have a 2.5" SSD with Windows installed that I would like to occasionally boot to. And I have an available sata port on the board and at least a few extra power connectors. The problem is that, as long as my 2.5" SSD is plugged into power, one of my two ethernet ports is dead. I have tried swapping out the ethernet cables, using a different switch, plugging the dead ethernet port directly into my router, no joy. The only solution is to unplug the SSD's power. This is annoying. Any help?
