  1. I have googled this topic for a while now, and also found a lot of information, but just not the final information that I was comfortable using. The problem is that I’m really not a Linux guy – far from it actually (I'm more of a Windows guy). I can use basic commands, update the OS (when needed), install stuff, and get going on basic things, like running a Minecraft server using MineOS (with guides and help) 😉. That was actually the main purpose of the VM which I created a long time ago (I know there is a docker for that now, but other stuff is also running on the server, so I would like to keep it, only extending the disc). But I can’t figure out how to extend the disk in the VM. I need some expertise help, guiding me in a simple understandable way (Like how space invader makes everything easy too undestand in his videos, for instance. Unfortunately he does not have a video on how to extend a Ubuntu Server disk, only Windows). Some details about the VM (I don’t know if it’s relevant, but here it is): Original Disk size: 20GB Updated size: 50GB Ubuntu Server: 18.04.4 LTS (Bionic Beaver) Machine: Q35-3.1 Bios: OVMF Primary vDisk location: Auto Primary vDisk Bus: VirtIO Some commands: fdisk –list Disk /dev/loop0: 110.8 MiB, 116178944 bytes, 226912 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes GPT PMBR size mismatch (41943039 != 104857599) will be corrected by w(rite). Disk /dev/vda: 50 GiB, 53687091200 bytes, 104857600 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: gpt Disk identifier: 9E82BAD1-20A4-4CC3-8A21-E461E54CFF53 Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/vda1 2048 1050623 1048576 512M EFI System /dev/vda2 1050624 41940991 40890368 19.5G Linux filesystem fdisk /dev/vda2 Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.31.1). Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them. Be careful before using the write command. The old ext4 signature will be removed by a write command. Device does not contain a recognized partition table. Created a new DOS disklabel with disk identifier 0xfa79545c. Command (m for help): p Disk /dev/vda2: 19.5 GiB, 20935868416 bytes, 40890368 sectors Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disklabel type: dos Disk identifier: 0xfa79545c So, it seems the system can see that there is 50GB of space. But the two partitions only use the original 20GB. How do I proceed from here? Please be specific, because - as I said my Linux skills are limited 😳 Thanks in advance! Trek
  2. The case is without PSU. The option without PSU for that model was not available on partspicker. I know it is a boxed model, but they are really noisy those default coolers. That's why I initially thought to buy a new one. The case is only temporary I will get a bigger one later. It was the cheapest one i could find for now.
  3. I selected this cooler because it seemed to fairly low noise. Not that i matters that much, but it would be nice not to have too much noise. I have switched to a "Cooler Master", but I might just spend the extra $ on the Noctua one in the end
  4. All very good points I have changed the build slightly: It seems to be impossible to get the Fractal Design - Node 804 case for now. I may be able to get one - second hand - in about 2 weeks, so for now i will just buy the cheapest one i can get that fits the shelf where it will reside. I have upped the power supply a little, but it is a cheaper model though. What do you think? ...Allan
  5. Hey I am thinking of doing an unRAID fileserver. And that will be it's only purpose - to be a file server/NAS. I already have a small server for Plex etc. which have 2 HDD in it. My plan is to keep running that server (which is connected directly to my TV with HDMI, which gives me the option to also browse etc. on it), remove the HDD's and move them to the new server, and then change the Plex media file locations, to the new unRAID server. I was thinking of buying the following components: Which I seem to be able to get at a fair price in Denmark. Is that a compatible build for unRAID? What I am trying to do is to come up with a budget build, that is possible to expand upon. I do not intend to add all drives from the get go. I already have the 2 WD drives and plan to get 2 SG drives in my initial purchase. What are you general thought? What and where can i Improve/what should i change? Just give me you total honest answers please Thanks in advance. ...Allan
