  1. I first boot into the bios and verify that all the memory and drives that should be present are recognized. also verify that the correct boot disk is selected. If this checks out, I boot into a USB stick using A light Linux distro, if it boots, check your original boot drive is readable - might be time to replace the hard drive from a hardware perspective, If I need to open the case, I will reseat every connection and test. next step would be to try a different power supply at some point, if its an arcane hardware failure, on a low end system its tim

  3. @Daveis correct. QNAP has what you want. https://www.qnap.com/en-us/product/ts-451a

  6. Thank you @schoondoggy and @E3000. I used to have 2 SSDs there, hooked to a P420 and connected via a SAS to 4-Sata cable. Though once I moved all the drives to the DL380 and repurposed the MicroServer I though to use it with a single SSD in the ODD bay and 4 SAS drives in the cage and though it would have been nice to have the SSD properly sat in place. Thank you both for the tips!

  7. Very hard to predict were the issue is. If it hangs before the Windows screen comes up it is likely hardware. If it hangs with the Windows splash screen up it is likely software. I would confirm the desktop has the latest BIOS, if you have not updated it recently. Once the BIOS is up-to-date, I would run a Windows clean up utility, to clean up the Windows installation. I prefer Glary, https://www.glarysoft.com/. Be sure you have a good backup of this machine before you do any of these things.

  8. The ODD on a MS Gen8 is 9.5mm. Also you will likely need to change your cables as this adapter will likely use a ODD SATA cable.

  9. My modules arrived today, I installed them and enabled TPM in the BIOS of both hosts. As expected, Hyper-V shows the TPM module in device manager and I can enable Bitlocker but in ESXi 7.0.1 if I create a new VM, enable Virtualization Based Security and click Add Other Device then a TPM is not listed. When I have more time will look into this further.

  10. The P222 is a bit old in the tooth now, it was good in the Gen8 but you're not getting the full speed of the drives because it's PCIe 2.0 iirc. Then again if you're just using 5400rpm ones it may be fine. The BBU has to be put somewhere though, and it's tight tight tight in that little case.

  11. @sandwernHi did you think about P222 ? There will be probably same problem because there was problem with overheating in Gen8 too. Also based on https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=io&productid=20933 P222 is still supported and price is very familiar too in these days (about 32EUR with 1GB cache + battery pack)

  12. The last time I researched this, QNAP was the only option. They had a NAS that would also work direct attached. I don't know which one it was though. Could you get a cheap DAS and share it? QNAP has had this box, and I've always wanted it! https://www.amazon.com/QNAP-TR-002-Enclosure-Attached-Hardware/dp/B07Q1KB12X/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=qnap+direct&qid=1609804475&sr=8-1

  13. Bit late to the party, but it has been a while since I visited these forums on a regular basis and I've only just seen this whilst researching a related topic. I have had this problem across a variety of systems and Windows updates and have found the instructions here to be really useful: https://sbsland.me/2020/11/04/fix-windows-10-update-and-small-business-essentials-connector/ (NOTE that the site is primarily in German but this issue is so widespread that there is an English language version of this one topic).

  14. HDMI switches tend to work well as long as the support the resolution you need. We have all of our gaming consoles running through an HDMI switch to save on ports at the TV. Splitters can have issues depending on how they are triggered.

  15. This is one of those deals that is only a deal if you need it. When setting up PFsense, Untagle or Sophos I like using small form factor desktops. In the past I always seemed to have one laying around that was good enough to meet the specs required. If you needed to buy something for this use I have found these to work well, They are small, but they offer a lot of functions, compatible with a broad range of CPU, four DIMM slots, M.2 slot, two PCIe slots: Dell-Precision-Tower-3000-Series-3420-Spec-Sheet.pdf Major limitation for actually using it as a workstation, the PCIe x16 slot is

  16. Have you tried clearing the CMOS? The chirps and and beeps you hear will be coming from a buzzer located besides the CMOS battery (black cylinder with a hole on top). You'll hear repeating chirps if the system is on a boot loop. Somewhat unrelated to your hardware but I, too, recently upgraded from an i5-4570 to an E3-1285v4 on my home-built server (Gigabyte Z97-D3H). I initially encountered the boot loop (slow repeating chirps) until I decided to remove all power and cleared the CMOS. After that, everything booted up to BIOS/UEFI. I loaded up Optimized defaults, and It

  17. All of those should work. Be sure to have the latest firmware on the P420. For WD Reds confirm you are not getting SMR drives:
