Hi...

 

 

I have a microserver gen8, basic, 2 GB RAM, Pentium G2020T and a cheap Segate 1 TB SATA 3 HDD.

 

I have not a lot experience with servers, is my first homelab, i has installed windows server 2008 R2 x86, and everything works fine, the server is just runing as web server for small test, and have a virtual machine os routerOS for network admin.

 

In the last months i javen't used it, its on all time but i not config or somenthing, today i sell one notebook that i have in the office, so i decide use mi microserver as desktop PC few days while my ne notebook arrives.

 

when i connected USB keyboard and mouse in the USB 3.0 the dont works, i restar my server and still not working, neither with us flash memory works, i entered the bios an the usb 3.0 are enabled. In windows device manager there are a generic usb 3.0 driver, i downloaded this driver:

 

Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Drivers for Windows Server 2008 R2

 

from here:

the setup give an error and i cant install it (mave have install manually?)

 

so is there a security config that nol let me use my 3.0 ports??

 

is a kwnowed problem??

 

or my ports are dead??.

 

 

I hope tha somebody can help me.

 

 

Tanks in advance, ciao.

USB 3.0 ports on the MicroServer do not work until the OS and drivers load. I assume to get into the BIOS you plugged the keyboard into a USB 2.0 port? With the system fully booted do the ports work? Is the server still running 2008R2?

Hi...

 

Tanks for you reply, i using USB 2.0 for the keyboard and mouse, the 3.0 ports not work when windows load (no keyboard, no mouse, no usb strorage, nothing is reconoized), i have installed WS 2008 R2 standard, but in the device manager figure a usb 3.0 generic controller, so i think that it works phisically, mabe is a driver problem but the drivers on the HP support don't help, so, i will install windows server 2012 R2 and test these drivers, when i have time.

 

That i said, it is my first server, i'm learning and it's exciting for me, i wish have free time for experiment :).

 

Any way if i get a solution i'll post here if can help anybody.

 

Tanks again, ciao.
