I have been running the WHS1 pack 3 for many years. Unfortunately it is no longer working. I got a Proliant microserver Gen10 hoping it will run it but was unable to install the software. The software should run on most older PCs?
Does anyone have the WHS1 running on the Gen10? Also my WHS1 iso is Pack 1. If I manage to install the Pack 1 can I find on the web the upgrade to pack 3? Would I be forever stuck at Pack 1? Any advice would be appreciated.
Has anyone around here been successful in setting up Proxmox on a Gen8 using a HBA for storage?
Bit of a random question here, and I know it depends on many factors such as what they are doing etc, but how many VMs have you guys comfortably ran on Gen8 with an E3-1265v2 and 16GB RAM? When did you start to see a performance hit compared to what the Gen8 is generally capable of?
I have become somewhat lazy (using the in-place rather than the clean-build route) and bullish (reckless?) so made changes to all my machines this morning.
In general everything went slowly and smoothly ...
- DELL 7920 Windows Pro for Workstations
- HP Microserver N36 W Pro
- HP Microserver N54 W Pro
- 2x HP Microserver Gen8 W Pro
- LINX 1010 Leather Tablet W Home
- LINX 1010 Tablet W Pro
- CHUWI Hi13 Tablet W Home
… the only exceptions being 2 x LINX 1010Education tablets which run W Pro: here I received error 0xa0000400 after a message saying I was compatible and good to go.
Something to look at later … or wait for my turn.
So far the usual annoyances such as changes to windows positioning in Explorer and Edge but nothing substantial.
I also find it necessary to switch Network Discovery off and back on to make sure the shared file systems are visible in Explorer/Network.
Couple of nice, if small, things I’ve noticed already:
- GPU temperature and disk type (SSD, SD, HDD) in Task Manager/Performance
- In Security Settings one can dismiss warnings that there are no MSA accounts for Onedrive, giving a green tick in the notification area
Still no CPU performance graph for the Gen8 – maybe that’s my fault for not being at the latest BIOS level?
While I am critical of MSFT on other counts, I think W10 is one of the best things the company has done. Over the last month I’ve upgraded two old (7 and 9 years) laptops from W7 to W10 (still FOC producing a genuine activated licenses) and am pleasantly surprised how good the driver detection and provision is.
HAND (have a nice download)
I have a HP MicroServer N40L:
Windows 7 in 120G SSD as boot drive;
TWO identical 4TB disks with hardware RAID 1 set up;
Only ONE 4TB disk can be seen in Windows 7.
It's been working perfectly for almost 8 yrs.
Recently i upgraded to Windows 10 and then strange things happened:
1. Two 4TB disks cannot be recoganised in Win10, i have to treat them like a new disk, to re-format them, which is strange, but it's ok luckily i backed up everything;
2. After re-formated them and RAID 1 set up again, TWO 4TB disks appears in Windows 10. Isn't one supposed to be hidden?!
It seems like N40L Raid 1 is not working on Windows 10? Do I need a new raid driver? but i couldn't find one.
Is anyone using N40L with Win10 and hardware Raid 1? Please help!
