    It probably will - perhaps might need IP address change if you used a static one that is now in a different range or is already used by one of your other devices.
    I powered it up tonight.
    I was able to connect to the Logitech Media Server Version: 7.7.5 - 1416570306 @ Thu Nov 27 07:38:09 CUT 2014 via port 9000.
    Eventually i figured I could download the WHS connect software via port 55000 and install on Windows 10. I now have a WHS Console for what that's worth. Via the setting there I can see it's a Atom D510 processor as @Manul said, it's 1.66 GHz.

    Update from below: Tranquil confirmed that the processor is a 64 bit processor. They said I should be able to upgrade the 2.5" drive to an SSD and a bootable device will work plugged into the USB socket.

    That is good news - at least you know that the machine and LMS still work.
    Did you try connecting a player to it and then Deezer (etc).

    7.7.5 may well be too old for some of what is available to LMS nowadays but it may well have enough for what you want.
    I'd leave it running and start playing music and if it works then move it down one in the priority list.

    Tranquil confirmed that the processor is a 64 bit processor. They said I should be able to upgrade the 2.5" drive to an SSD and a bootable device will work plugged into the USB socket.

    Looking at SSD drives, I see Samsung 850 EVO 500 GB 2.5 inch Solid State Drive. Hopefully this would be straighforward to fit.

    After that it's a project, I think:

    • Create a usb debian server bootable install, so many suggestions online I can't see the woods from the trees, maybe use http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/
    • Install LMS debian package - have not looked into Squeezelite suggested by @man_in_a_van but it sounds like an alternative
    • Figure out how to access LMS over debian server to configure

    Excellent !

    I know that Centos 7 will run on a D510 just in case you decide to go that way.

    I would reccommend a minimal install whichever distro you choose as the Tranquil will probably be quite light on RAM

    The SSD option would be a good idea as you have a relatively small collection and a 250GB SSD is fairly cheap
    I would suggest you use the HDD to start with to make sure everything works OK before spending on a SSD

    Good Luck

    Jeff

    EDIT: You'll probably want this one https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd...64-netinst.iso "amd64" means x86-64 Netinst is a mininmal version

    Thanks! tbh, I have no way of deciding whether to use Centos 7 or any other distribution. I will take advice from here about what's easiest and best for a squeezebox server.

    What's the point getting the current HDD working if I will blow away the installation with a SSD install? I reckon 500GB might be a good comprimise, not break the bank but future proof me some, that said I would like cheaper than I am finding for the Samsung MZ-76E500B.

    If you buy an SSD and then find you cannot install something due to a hardware conflict etc you havent wasted the money buying the SSD

    Ok,I think you are suggesting installing Linux on the HDD first? I missed that.

    Personally I would get the system up and running on the HDD, if all goes well this would take less than an hour I would guess

    Once all is working order the SSD and repeat with the SSD taking the place of the HDD

    On the subject of distro's I use both debian and Centos theres not much to choose between them but I know Centos a little better

    I'll try tonight, 1 hour, yikes!!

    How would you suggest creating a centos 7 bootable USB stick? Then I connect a monitor to the T7 and keyboard to the T7 and follow on screen instructions?
