I've been researching the Gen8 for two weeks now reading forums for hours a day and downloading God knows how many videos from youTube (John Stutsman videos are impressive). One thing I've yet to find is a step by step (software) guide when the Gen8 is first booted up. I know I need to apply the latest SPP, I know I've got to use IP, I know I've got to configure my hard drives, configure my B120i, install my chosen OS, create my HP account (and register for warranty) etc. before I progress but I've yet to find a detailed guide walking through this process. Does one exist or do I need to cobble it all together from all the various posts and videos on the forums? Thank you.

Hello

Being disappointed by bugs on standard NAS products, i decided to build one based on OpenMediaVault linux deb.

Found that Gen8 works fine for this purpose, i discovered this extraordinary rich forum.

 

Have now a Gen8 + add 8G of Ram, 256G SSD and 4x2T disks. OMV works out of the box.

 

Now have a E3 1265L V2 and looking for a good heatsink mod, i found a post in the forum with a great solution with bracket modification and fan placed between the CPU and the heat sink but can't find it  again.

 

Thank you for the help and the quality of messages on this forum.

Hi I’m Tim , an Aussie living in Hong Kong. Regular listener of Reset podcast , but new to the reset forums

 

Currently using a Synology DS916 and HP N54L (win 10).

 

Also just dug out my old HP X510 (similar to EX495) with WHS V1... which I’ve wiped and now installing WHS 2011 on. Giving this old thing to my parents so at least they have a second (centralized) backup of photos, etc

Greetings. Dave emailed me to ask if I would mind creating a new ID for myself; one separate from my father, Ikon. He suggested it could be Ikon related. Thinking on that, I figured Ikon-TNG seemed appropriate. My name is Gary. It's a pleasure to be part of a group such as this. My father was right: there are a lot of smart people here, and you seem to be good people... kind of a rare thing on the Internet from what I've seen.
