  1. Thank you. I remember seeing something about that now. Just disabled turbo boost like you said. I guess I will need to see what performance consequences that has when I get home. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. So my server crashed with a CPU_CATERR noted in IPMI. I was able to reset power remotely to get it back up. Has anyone seen this? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks, I read your post on this in another thread and am still confused with what this special BIOS got us. I thought we could get video from the vga port and kvm while still using the iGPU for transcoding.
  4. Ok, How do I enable iGPU transcoding while still keeping IPMI? I followed this guide but IPMI KVM shows powered off. Is there a difference between iGPU and i915?
  5. Ok. The middle PCI slot is disabled but SATA0 is not. It depends what kind of nvme drive you use. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Give me some time, this weekend I'll be able to get all the sata and pci ports filled up and see what doesn't work unless I have time earlier.
  7. I do have a Samsung 970 Evo Plus on this board. I can do some testing if you'd like. I've got my server up and running and have been moving things over to it.
  8. Thanks, I thought I deleted this post as I fixed it. By removing the partition and letting it sit long enough it gave me the option to format at the bottom thus fixing itself.
  9. tldr; By removing the partition and letting it sit in the array, it finally gave me the option to format at the bottom which fixed itself. So yesterday I finally finished building my new server and loaded up unraid for the first time ever. Right now I have 1 nvme, 2 SSDs, and 3 HDDs. I started with the nvme as the cache drive and 1 hdd as parity and 2 hdds in the pool. Everything was working well, then I decided to add the 2 SSDs to the nvme to create a cache pool. That worked, but then I decided the SSDs might slow down the nvme and it probably wasn't necessary. Where I went wrong was just unassigning the 2 SSDs and leaving the nvme. Unraid did not like this. In the wee hours of the morning I tried various blkdiscard and btrfs device remove commands to no success. I have tried removing the partitions and formatting in xfs and btrfs and no matter what it says Unmountable: Unsupported partition layout and under cache it says unknown partition format. I formatted it as xfs and ran the following which didn't help either. root@ZUnraid:~# xfs_repair -v /dev/nvme0n1 Phase 1 - find and verify superblock... bad primary superblock - bad magic number !!! attempting to find secondary superblock... .found candidate secondary superblock... unable to verify superblock, continuing... .found candidate secondary superblock... unable to verify superblock, continuing... .found candidate secondary superblock... unable to verify superblock, continuing... Sorry, could not find valid secondary superblock Exiting now. I am at a loss now. I don't have another device with an nvme slot to try this drive in. I could make a live cd with some partition tools but I'm at a loss on how to get this added back in. Unassigned devices has no issue formatting the drive or removing the partition so I'm not sure what it's complaining about. Halp!
  10. Thanks for this post. I was able to catch the 2288G back in stock on Provantage and order everything up for my first Unraid build which is supposed to be delivered this Friday. I am coming from a dual E5-2680 V2 Windows server with DAS which I will keep around for VMs, labs, etc. but have ran out of physical storage space and using Drivepool in Windows caused me to duplicate everything and it's a bit clunky. Going to be a fun weekend building a new server! https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Shane01638/saved/hxwGqs
