    Did not get it working and gave up after trying for a day. Now running Yosemite again with no issues.

    Well, someone has to do it. I'll be tyring el Capitan on my EX495 this weekend. Keep you posted (started out with a Snow Leopard installation a couple of years ago, these things little machines have turned out to be a great deal :-) )

    Install Mavericks (+ server) on HP Mediasmart EX490

    Has anyone else experienced issues with screen sharing over a local network? Every time I reboot my iMac and try to connect to the Mediasmart (both Yosemite), it pops up as a "normal" pc in the finder. Screensharing with the Mediasmart isn't possible. Neither when I try to use Screens. I can...

    Great value for money! I think I even started out with a Snow Leopard install ;-)

    Install Mavericks (+ server) on HP Mediasmart EX490

    Yep, it worked. I took out the hard drive and connected it to another Mac. Booted in and just used the app store update to Yosemite. Used MultiBeast afterwards with the normal drivers and voila: a working Yosemite installation on an HP Mediasmart EX490.

    Install Mavericks (+ server) on HP Mediasmart EX490

    Would like to know if someone upgraded to Yosemite as well. If not, I think I will try it once I find a spare HD somewhere.

    Install Mavericks (+ server) on HP Mediasmart EX490

    Anyone else have issues with 10.9.2? 10.9.1 worked flawlessly, but since I've upgraded my Mediasmart won't boot anymore. Even when I connect the hard drive via usb to my iMac it won't boot, unless I force it into safe mode. But even after running multibeast it won't boot normally.

    Lion Server on an HP Mediasmart EX485

    Does anyone else have problems with 10.9.2? Since I've upgraded, my Mediasmart won't boot anymore. I've tried to boot from the hard drive via my iMac and that also fails. I am able to boot via safe mode, but even after applying Multibeast I am unable to boot normally via the Mediasmart hard drive...

    Lion Server on an HP Mediasmart EX485

    Hi STH744, I've also gotten round to installing Mavericks and it has been working like a charm. It's great to see that these little machines are still able to run the latest version of OS X and do their work without any problems. I've just been able to get another one (never used) on e-Bay...

    No one? I've tried to update via the App store, but it just reboots into Mountain Lion. Will try to install on a new Hard drive via the easybeast method.

    Did you check the The advanced disk format tip? If you use a HD > 1 GB then you need to check this.
