  1. Just to give people an update on current cases. Here are the ones I found that I liked the most, there are others of course, but I thought I'd point out the ones that really have good capacity and are actively being sold right now rather than discontinued as of this posting date. Fractal Define 7 XL series - Full Tower: 18 3.5" drive bays with add on HDD cages $200 Mesh 2 XL Same case as Define 7 XL, slightly different airflow, Mesh 2 XL - Full Tower: ~$200 Phanteks Enthos Elite - Super Tower: -13 x 3.5" and 6 x 2.5" ~$850 Enthos 719 - Full Tower: 12 x 3.5" and 11 x 2.5" ~$190 I have this case and REALLY like all aspects of it, from water cooling, lighting, build quality etc Enthos Pro 2 - Full Tower: - with extra drive trays 12 x 3.5" and 3 x 2.5" ~$190 I have this case and again really like it, but the Enthos 719 is better Eclipse P600S - Mid Tower 10 x 3.5" and 3 x 2.5" ~$160 Eclipse P500A - Mid Tower 10 x 3.5" Corsair Obsidian 750D - Full Tower™-750D-Airflow-Edition-Full-Tower-ATX-Case/p/CC-9011078 9 x 3.5" and 4 x 2.5" ~$160 Obsidian 800D - Full Tower™-800D-Full-Tower-Case/p/CC800DW 9 x 3.5"" and 2 x 2.5" ~$300 Obsidian 1000D - Super Tower - 5 x 3.5" and 6 x 2.5" $500 I also own this case and it's a beast, I do love it, and it's stuffed with equipment and water cooling. Given how much space there is, you can easily add extra 3.5" (12 or 25 more easily) mounts, just not sure it'll be pretty. Thermaltake View 91 RGB Plus - Super/Full Tower: 12 x 3.5" or 2.5" ~$500 (just ordered and will see what the quality is like and looks like lots of space for what cooling too) Level 20 - Full Tower 14 x 3.5" or 2.5" $1000 Core W200 - Super Cube 17 x 3.5" or 2.5" $550 (dual server case) expandable Core W100 - Full Tower 13 x 3.5" or 2.5" $400
  2. I figured out how to change to UEFI and his videos show the same. I did try his method with UEFI enabled on the flash creation with a new drive that he recommends. First boot, select GUI, and blinking curser once loading finishes. So... how do I get into the GUI locally while booting to UEFI? Let's ignore the VM comment, and focus on one problem at a time.
  3. So I'm BRAND new to unRAID and am still testing the system against my other storage servers. So I'm certain there are huge blanks in my knowledge. I'm planning on running a Win10 in VM to game on the system, hence wanting the webgui to work so that I can eventually get the VM to run with the connected monitor and keyboard etc (side issue, on my first install had problems with getting my 3090 to pass through to the VM and, tried a number of fixes listed none worked, and then found the UEFI boot option and thought I'd give it a try on a fresh install). So I did a wipe of my USB drive from my first install so I'm starting clean. Changing to Permit UEFI and altering my bios settings, the system boots, I see all of the linux processes start, scrolling text with the screen going blank leaving a flashing curser in the top left of an otherwise blank window. From there the system won't respond to keyboard inputs. The remote web interface works fine. I took a video of the boot up to see what was last displayed before the blank screen: ___ Starting crond: ...blah blah... Starting atd: ...blah blah... Starting Samba: ...blah blah... unRAID Server OS Version: 6.9.2 IPv4 address: 192.168.1.x IPv6 address: not set Tower login: _ -----> blank screen with flashing curser For the heck of it I tried typing in Root <enter> <enter> since I haven't changed any user login info yet. Any suggestions? Eventually I'd like to be about to run this as a normal computer with all of the unRAID stuff behind the scenes, dockers etc. System info: Model: Custom M/B: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC.
