Velocity Micro Windows Home Server un-boxing

Regular reader and listener Geoff Mattie sent me a link to the first of his series of posts on setting up Windows Home Server, in this post he unboxes a Velocity  Micro Windows Home Server. The Velocity Micro looks a nice Home Server and compares well with the HP servers. Look out for part 2 and 3 show the setup process.

Well it was too late to use as part of my setup for the Ultimate Media Center Enthusiast Setup competition, but I did finally receive my Windows Home Server from Velocity Micro.  I had originally thought it was taking a month to deliver because they were waiting for the Microsoft beta fix to be released to hardware partners so they could install it before they shipped, but I am told by their tech support folks that this is not the case.  So I am left wondering what could possible take that long to get the system shipped.  I guess I may be spoiled by Dell on that front.  But nevertheless, the system arrived, and I want to share with you the un-boxing and setup experiences as I go through them.  So let’s get to it:
