ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus
This is a microATX motherboard. It comes with the following main integrated features that make it near perfect for the small form factor case that can be quiet and cool.
- AMD Socket AM2+ / AM2 socket supporting Athlon Athlon 64 X2 / Athlon FX / Athlon 64 X2 / Semperon CPUs
- Geforce 6100 graphics
- nForce 430 chipset
- 1 x PCI Express x16 +2xPCI
- 2xSATA 3Gb/s with RAID Support
- 8x USB 2.0
These motherboards ship with a flawed BIOS that reverses the bytes in the MAC address. Further it reverses some of the nibbles in some of the MAC address bytes, so a byte with 'f4' becomes '4f'. All of this plays havoc with anyone wanting to set-up an ASUS M2N-MX SE Plus as a diskless client. Version 0602 of the BIOS, released 2008/11/04 does fix this issue and is a must have upgrade for anyone wanting to use this motherboard as a diskless client.
Bottom line is that this motherboard can be considered for use as a diskless client
