CPU Intel Pentium 133 MHz CPU or higher: such as Intel Celeron, PIII, P4, AMD K6, Athlon, Duron; any modern CPU: the higher the frequency the better performance; NOTE: eComStation may not detect Intel P4 HT as a dual CPU setup in all cases;
RAM 48 MB of RAM is an absolute minimum required to install eCS from CD. When starting the installation from boot floppy, the minimum required amount of RAM is 32 MB; 64 MB of RAM is a practical minimum, 4 GB is maximum supported amount. Install as much RAM as you need;
Video adapter PCI VGA video card with at least 512 kB memory; AGP video card supported by SciTech Display Doctor (see compatible hardware list at http://www.ecomstation.com/ );
Harddrive 500 MB of free hard drive space; 1 GB of hard drive space (that's reasonable for everyday use);
Mouse PS/2, serial or USB mouse; PS/2 mouse is recommended to free the USB ports;
CD-ROM IDE or SCSI optical drive. any IDE or SCSI CD/DVD drive capable of booting;
Network adapter an Ethernet network adapter. Ethernet, WiFi adapters

Possibilities of the system

  • Support of 16 processors/cores (64 in theory)
  • Boot from filesystems: JFS, HPFS, FAT
  • RAM: max 4 Gb
  • Max hard drivers: 16 and more (In theory: up to 16 PATA/SATA channels [SATA: 1 disk/channel, PATA: 2 disks/channel]. Tested: People ran setups with more than 8 channels and loads of disks)
  • Max disk size: 2 Tb, (Bootable disk: only 512 Gb are available)

This hardware is supported with restrictions:

  • SATA works in Compatible mode only
  • HDD with 512 byte/sectore are supported; 4096 byte/sectore are not supported

Restrictions of eComStation

This technologies are not supported:

  • SAS
  • Bluetooth
  • 3D with acceleration
