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

i have tried so many things and so many drivers from the hp site i'm actually just plain confused now

 

all i want to do is install windows from one usb that i made in rufus on to the usb that is on the board

 

.... in bios and boot i can see both usb's but as soon as i get to the "where do u want to install windows" screen there is nothing.

in cmd diskpart i can see the both usbs aswell ... it seems that it is only the install that is not seeing it but then it is coz it is there if i try to browse for drivers

You could try switching the BIOS from UEFI boot to Legacy boot. 

How do you have the target USB formatted? 

The internal USB port is USB 2.0 your system will be quite slow if you run Windows Server 2016 on a USB 2.0 device.

Hi there thanks for the reply

 

yes I have tried both uefi and legacy neither work to load the storage driver.

the target usb is. Apacer 128gig usb 3.0 and is formatted into Ntsf.

 

i also did try the apacer on one of the four USB ports at the back of the box as well and the same problem

      Dropbox is deprecating  the "free" tier of their storage plans
       
      got an email from them this evening  that "I cannot link any new devices" and the only alternative is to upgrade to a $10/month plan
       
      This is from their forums
       
      "Dropbox device limit
      Dropbox Limits Its Free Accounts To Maximum Of Three Devices. Previously, there was no such limit implemented. According to the Dropbox website, as of March, users of its free Basic tier can add their account to a maximum of three devices. However, if they already had the device linked to more than three devices, then they will continue to function. "
      I don't know how hard and fast this is  -   I tried installing a dropbox instance on my cell phone and couldn't this evening -    I think my main PC
       
      is on the list -   I couldn't find a listing of existing "connected devices"  on my dropbox account.
       
      I don't even know what my other two devices are -   probably long gone  my old windows cell phone for example.
       
       
      Just as Well -    Dropbox was my main cloud storage about what 10 years ago but with the improvements to OneDrive/Gdrive, and my eventual use of Office 365 storage became kinda moot.   will probably just cancel my account, which is probably what they wanted anyway
       
      what is the old saying  "If you aren't paying for the product, you are the product"    
       
      also   "once bitten twice shy"     Cloud Storage is not a  true  backup  
       
      due to Crashplan's demise,    this winter I backed up all my irreplaceable data  ( family photos, documents)  on   M-Disk archival Blu ray disks.  
       
      I have a copy in my firesafe and at my Brother's house  in another state.

      FYI, I have just installed Windows Server 2019 Standard (Desktop Experience) using the latest (WS2016) HP AMD chipset & VGA driver. Everything is recognised in Device Manager and stable.

      Well, I finally did it and got a 4K monitor and have attached it to my MicroServer.
       
      Here is my list of devices that I worked with:
       
      4K LG Monitor
      ·         LG32UD59-B 32” 4K UHD LED Monitor, 3840x2160, HDCP 2.2, HDMI, DisplayPort, AMD FreeSync, On-Screen Control
      HPE ProLiant MicroServer Gen10 X3421
      ·         8GB RAM  - Stock
      ·         Windows 10 Pro x64
      ·         OS Drive: SATA Port 1 – Samsung 840 Pro 256GB loaded in Icy Dock’s EZConvert in Drive Bay 1
      ·         4K LG Monitor attached with DP cable – NOTE: 4K LG Monitor was also attached with HDMI cable via: “Active DisplayPort to HDMI 4K Adapter, Benfei DP to HDMI Ultra HD Converter”   -- both attachments seemed to work well.
      ·         SYBA SD-CM-UAUD USB 2.0 External Stereo Audio Adapter
      ·         External speakers with subwoofer
      ·         Logitech K120 Keyboard with mouse
      ·         Pioneer slim external USB 3.0 Blu-Ray BDR-XD05S
      ·         CyberLink PowerDVD 18 Ultra
       
      The monitor seems to work well in 4K mode with both the DP cable connected directly to the MS as well as the HDMI cable using a DP to HDMI converter that I used last year when working on the Beta unit.  So far so good.  
       
      Here's a video of my experience

      I also posted this on the HPE forums.
       
      Just bought my first HP Microserver and got a decent deal on a Gen10 x3421.  I am using a USB key to try and install either CentOS or RHEL 7 on it and neither install sees any of the disks in the front slots.  I am using 1TB WD Caviar Green drives.  I have also tried a Seagate drive but nothing seems to work.
       
      I have gone back and forth between EUFI and Legacy hoping that would help.  Nothing.
       
      I am currently installing on a 500B USB drive and hope to see if the drives are visible when I fully boot.
       
      I also looked through the drivers and firmware and did not see anything directly related to my problem.  I was going to download the SPP but couldn't igure out how to register my system manually to allow me to download the SPP.
       
      Am I missing anything obvious or does the system not yet support RHEL 7 or CentOS 7?
       
      Thanks for any information.

      Hi Folks,
       
      I am hoping that you can help with an issue I am having with my new HP Microserver Gen 10. Apologies if I am posting in the wrong place. 
      The microserver CPU is constantly running at 100%. It occasionally dips but normally is maxed out. I have build the server from new using Samsung SSD drives in a Raid 1 configuration initially. I have also tried the following.
       
      1. Single SSD with windows 10 Pro
      2. Single SDD with Server 2016
      3. Raid 1 with Server 2016.
      4. Single SATA with Windows 10 pro.
       
      I have updated the firmware. I have downloaded all the latest drivers from HP's portal.
       
      I have tried to get support from HP but they are providing one excuse after another to explain why they cant support the server. Currently the server is about a month or so old.
       
      HP Support responses..
       
      1. Windows 10 isn't supported.. ( Despite having windows 10 drivers for this server on their portal)
      2. SSD drives are not supported
      3. SATA drives are not supported unless they have HP branding. ( The Gen 10 is being sold on Amazon with Western Digital drives included)
       
      We have tried killing of several services in Windows 10 as per articles that we have found online. We have set the Virtual Memory to refresh on reboot.
       
      None of the above have achieved anything. 
       
      As a result of the CPU running constantly at 100% the system is unbearably slow and cant be used to run even the most basic of tasks.
       
      It looks like we have been left holding an expensive tin box.
       
      I have attached a screen dump showing the CPU utilization. 
       
      Any help or advice at this point would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Kind Regards
      Carl
