    Hmmm, a 10gb for your workstation and another for your server. Not a bad price. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thunderbolt 4

    I like the new HP Spectre 14 ... ... but only basic colours in the UK at present ... and no Windows 10 Pro. (I have the answer for the latter with the PCWorld offer I put up a few months ago q.v.). Maybe March I'm told. HP’s new Spectre x360 14 laptop has a 3:2 aspect ratio plus a Thunderbolt 4 port hiding in the corner - The Verge

    Thunderbolt 4

    Worth pointing out that TB3 was fully implemented on Apple stuff ... leaving Windows devices as poor relations ... ... but TB4 is fully capable on Windows now ... according to the literature at least.

    GEN8 : Memory (NON)-ECC

    My current one is: Kingston kth-pl316e/8g Would this work with it even though it’s not Kingston branded. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2P-KTH-PL316E-8G-2-Power-8GB-DDR3L-1600MHz-ECC-TS-UDIMM-Compatible-Part-03-/233772008789?_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49292 But I’m struggling to find another stick that’s not £50+ and coming from abroad. Also I’m sure I read that because I have an intel i5 3470T that I can’t use EEC ram but it looks like my current Kingston ram is EEC??

    10GB Ethernet Switch for < $100

    I was wondering who would be the first to ship a Marvell 88E6193X based switch. Nice features for the price. Marvell Alaska X 88X3310/40P Single or Quad 10GBASE-T/NBASE-T Ethernet Transceiver

    GEN8 : Memory (NON)-ECC

    That looks like it should work. It is a good idea to run a matched pair have you searched for a match to the 8GB stick you already have?

    GEN8 : Memory (NON)-ECC

    I'm looking for an 8GB additional stick from the UK and really am struggling to work out what will work or not. Can anyone recommend an 8GB stick that will definitely work and its silly money. will this work? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hynix-HMT41GU7AFR8A-PB-T0-AB-8GB-PC3L-12800E-DDR3-1600MHz-ECC-Unbuffered-Memory/402593789427?hash=item5dbc75b5f3:g:WMEAAOSwpE5fzevS Or can someone recommend something better?

    ESXi notes

    How did you update?
  14. Hi Peter, The only way I could get the system to boot with the RAID card was to swap out the Xeon processor for the i3 the Gen8 originally came with. In the end, I preferred having the Xeon in there and so went with xpenology and its software RAID. In future I might switch to unRAID for something a bit more supported but for now it's been working a treat for at least 7 months.
  15. I believe you need to reset the BIOS using the hardware dip switches inside the server, although I can't remember the exact process and if it will affect the content already on the drives. If you already have a backup or the drives are empty then i would try doing this.
  16. Yeah I'd deffo go down the SSD route, but any other spare disk would do to prove the point of it being the drive or just a bad install.
  17. Sounds like a hardware fault. Could be the HDD. Trig0r's is a good idea ... ... but if it does turn out to be the disk then you would still be advised to switch up to an SSD. You need to download Windows on another comparable Windows PC (assuming the problem device no longer boots up at all) from here Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com) onto a USB drive.

    Thunderbolt 4

    Most promising technology for me in CES 2021 were the Thunderbolt 4 items. High end laptops now coming with TB4 ports, two typically. TB4 itself looks a lot more flexible, apart from the speed boost. Intel's Maple Ridge (JHL8540) Thunderbolt 4 Controller Now Shipping (anandtech.com) - new Maple Ridge silicon likely to appear on Ryzen/Threadripper motherboards - more ports e.g. OWC's Thunderbolt 4 dock makes up for new laptops' lack of ports (msn.com) Time to ditch my 10 year old SAMSUNG laptop?
  20. Got another spare HDD? Grab a USB stick and download Windows 10 on it, stick the new/spare drive into the old machine and see if you can install it.
  21. She did have two AV's on her machine, one being a trial version of MalwareBytes. I've removed that, then rebooted it. It still hung on reboot, at the BIOS level with the Dell logo there. 😒
  22. One tactic you might consider .... ... try a small SSD in the old machine, cost say $30 ... ... and if that doesn't work buy a new machine with a HDD, then use the SSD in the new machine giving you an OS and application drive as well as the HDD for data. Another, if you go the Dell Outlet route, is to buy a business desktop, for then you will obtain Windows 10 Professional.

    HP Proliant ML350p G8 Watercooling!

    Hello everyone. I'm thinking of completing the HD bays, completing the two bays that come empty. Does anyone know any place that sells cage (660351-001) at an affordable price? Converting from USD to BRL would be cheaper if I buy another server here, or sell mine. Ps: in time, did anyone make a mod to use the 18 discs? thanks
  24. I've fixed lots of old desktops and laptops which sound just like yours. It's usually: - a virus - a driver - 2 antivirus programs fighting each other - a decaying old disk Reinstalling Windows (10 presumably) on any old SSD and upping RAM from 2GB to 4GB (or 8GB) invariably sorts everything out. Even back to an early CORE 2 DUO 2006 vintage! It is relatively easy to prepare a DELL machine since it will have a service tag linking to all the necessary drivers on DELL's support website. I've also found that Windows 10 is generally very good a
  25. Hi Mitch, Very much the same as you, I have been using the default machine and have a few upgrades, one of which is the P222 which I just tried to fit. Did you resolve this as I have the same problem with bus errors reported on the two attached WD red drives in the drive array? Now if I go back to the onboard B120i I get a bus errors as well. I am using the following: System Rom J06 Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E3-1230 V2 @ 3.30GHz I just did a BIOS reset and it seems to be worse ! Gone from a usable system to nothi

    ODD 2.5" HDD/SSD adaptor

    Thank you @schoondoggy and @E3000. I used to have 2 SSDs there, hooked to a P420 and connected via a SAS to 4-Sata cable. Though once I moved all the drives to the DL380 and repurposed the MicroServer I though to use it with a single SSD in the ODD bay and 4 SAS drives in the cage and though it would have been nice to have the SSD properly sat in place. Thank you both for the tips!

    ODD 2.5" HDD/SSD adaptor

    I had one in the very early days of owning a Gen8 but unfortunately I can't remember anything about it. I got rid of it once i realised it wasn't necessary and took up too much room that could be used for additional SSDs. Unless you move the server around regularly its not a necessity to have the SSD nailed down IMO. YMMV
  28. I've checked, the BIOS is up to date. Also checked with my wife. When it hangs upon reboot or PC startup, it always hangs before Windows comes up. All it shows is Dell, which I take to mean it's still in the BIOS mode.
  29. I first boot into the bios and verify that all the memory and drives that should be present are recognized. also verify that the correct boot disk is selected. If this checks out, I boot into a USB stick using A light Linux distro, if it boots, check your original boot drive is readable - might be time to replace the hard drive from a hardware perspective, If I need to open the case, I will reseat every connection and test. next step would be to try a different power supply at some point, if its an arcane hardware failure, on a low end system its tim
