@billc3012 said in Xorg fails installling minimal Live ISO (Maybe this is normal ?):
It seems I should scrap the old server and get a cheap new box. So new box, less power and less noise.
First, I hope I am not stepping on any toes by suggesting an OS other than
Since you are talking about new hardware, If I may be so bold as to offer a suggestion. The most power efficient and inexpensive system I have found for a server is a an Odroid SBC (Single Board Computer) which has an arm chip. So the drawback is you have to use Arch Linux Arm, which is not as hard to install as Arch Linux believe it or not.
I have an Odroid XU4 which is based on a Samsung ARM arm v7 chip.
On this server I have ssh for Linux, samba for windows, minidlna for DLNA devices, and a Plex server. All working great.
Here is a picture of my system with an external WD red label 2 TG NAS hard drive. Note that the Kill-A-Watt in my hand reads 04 which is watts drawn at the power outlet.
here is a pic with the external Hard Drive unit plugged into the Kill-A-Watt. The reading 06 watts. The media storage uses more power than the computer! Of course if you need less storage, maybe 512 GB, a SSD would draw less power. Anyway 10 Watts for the entire unit.

Instructions for installing Arch Linux Arm
Just offering as a suggestion that you may want to look into. I spent a lot of time researching what to use and came up with this. Some are doing this with a raspberry pi, but I recommend using the Oroid XU4Q as it is the most powerfull with 8 cores, 2 USB 3 ports, 1 Gb Lan port, and 2 GB of ram.
