This is what HPE shipped with the Gen10 BETA:

After loading Windows 10 Pro onto a SSD attached to SATA Port5 I changed out the Stock HPE RAM for:

2 x Kingston ValueRAM 16GB (1 x 16GB) DDR4 2400 RAM (Server Memory) ECC DIMM (288-Pin) KVR24E17D8/16

 

 

Picture of 1st 16GB DIMM installed -- preparing to install 2nd 16GB DIMM

NOTE: OS Samsung SSD, PORT5, is taped to base of ODD Bay space while a Corsair FORCE GT is laying on top attached to SATA PORT6 (The Corsair FORCE GT SSD was the First drive I had attached to the SATA PORT6 - see the thread on Drives for more information).....

It's not official until we can use "duct tape" on it :P

Give it 10 minutes, there's no doubt an SDM prototype in the works...

Since this is a RAM thread and it is upgradeable can you guys talk about those options for us?  Do you have Amazon or NewEgg links on some example configurations that will work with Gen 10?  I would like to know a ballpark of costs to get it upgraded.  Granted, it is a beta box so you can address that as well.

NewEGG and Amazon had the best prices on ValueRAM when I was looking -- NewEgg was something like $20-40 cheaper so I went with them but the prices bounce around so it's a good Idea to shop around.  EBay had them too but they were really pricey for some reason.  At the time I paid $290 for two sticks.

Here's my link (but NewEgg currently has them out of stock I see):

NOTE: be sure to use RESET link when ever possible.

On the topic of RAM, is it necessary to continue using ECC DIMMs in this server? The Gen7s came with 2GB ECC, but could use non-ECC.

 

Forgive me if this has already been answered, I've been searching and all references I have found so far keep referring to ECC.

      Hi everyone.
       
      New to this forum.
      I have a gen8 microserver running at home, where I have installed an SSD in the ODD sata slot. On the SSD I have installed Ubuntu Server 18.04.
      I have then created a logical volume witht the raid controller and can then boot to the SSD. So far so good.
      My problem emerges when I reboot the system. The logical volume disapears and it gives the error: "boot logical drive is configured but is missing or offline".
      I then have to go into the utility and reconfigure the logical volume. Kind of annoying, when trying to run a headless setup.

      Good day all
       
      i bought a gen 10 x3216 MicroServer and I have been trying to install windows server 2016 on it with a usb and I get it to boot into the usb with the iso on it but I can not get past the one install step where u supposed to select the drive.
       
      instead it says to download storage drivers and browse to select driver. I have downloaded every single storage driver from the hpe site or is sure does feel like it.
       
      if I try to select the driver I have to do so manually by unticking show only compatible drivers because if I leave it ticked there is nothing compatible. Iam stumped on what the correct driver is.
       
      ok so what Iam trying to do isssssss I want to install the os onto the usb that I have attached inside the box the one that is directly coming off the board. Is that a different driver ? 
       
      In bios/boot up options I can see all usb connected.
       
      can anyone please help me with this

      Greetings,
       
      I'm new to the HPMSG8 world and so far I'm loving it. I have a stock Xeon with 16G of aftermarket memory with iLO patched to 2.70. Next up is adding a RAID card, so I can put my boot SSD on the onboard RAID. I picked up a LSI SAS9211-8i on Amazon, but am struggling to flash it to IT mode on the MicroServer. Is this even possible? Unfortunately, the only other system I have with PCI slots is 32-bit.
       
      Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
