Re: Raspberry Pi 1 as NAS?

My first try for a "purpose built" RPi based NAS was a RPi1B+ with a 2TB HDD ( I was gunning for [1 x 1TB] + [1 x 2TB] ) but didn't go as planned. it was a microSD boot (bootcode.bin method) + HDD root setup. booting the system as a 2-HDD system was like "hand-crank starting a car engine" wherein I ...

Re: 1TB microSD Card is real!

I'd rather use 2TB HDD for my RPi, than an expensive (and may be unreliable) 1TB microSD.

Re: I think there's a bug in NOOBS with very large XDHC SD cards.

have not used NOOBS since the 2nd major update of Raspbian Stretch....

as flashing the OS image (before it was via Win32DiskImager, then after via Etcher ) is much faster (way faster) than installing via NOOBS.
and there are no problems even when installing it on 128GB microSD and even on 2TB HDDs.

try it and see for yourself....

if it runs without any problems whatsoever then its marginally OK...
if it runs but a problem (or several problems) occurs then its not OK

I don't expect you could get a Pi1b to 1200MHz, I imagine the power circuitry isn't able to handle the load.
OK.... roger that!
