  1. Try to see if your keyboard works in the BIOS. If so, then it is Windows 10 (which disables the PS/2 port because its "legacy"). You can enable the PS/2 port by modifying a registry setting: https://connectwww.com/how-to-solve-ps-2-keyboard-and-mouse-not-working-after-windows-10-update/60806/ And as @kelvinhall05 said, the PS/2 port is NOT hot-swappable.
  2. I don't think you can flash the H310 mini to IT mode, only the normal H310. Could be wrong, though.
  3. When that invalid cert thing pops up, click the go to website anyways button. They all do that.
  4. I definitely intend to use it. I have a 35U server cabinet, and will soon have a deticated networking closet. I already have some ideas of what to run on it, but I would like to actually utilize the RAM. It currently has Proxmox on it for VMs.
  5. I am in the US. I got it locally at a place called 3R Technology (in south Seattle). They were doing a sale. The server was normally $699.
  6. So I totally scored on a DL380p G8 with duel Xeon E5-2670's, 384GB ECC RAM (PC3-12800R), duel 750W PSUs, etc. I also bought 4 300GB 10K SAS drives for $12 each. I have no idea what to do with all this power. Any suggestions? I'm barely utilizing my old R710 as it is.
  7. Oh. They are custom built for users. Guess that would be out of my price range.
  8. Also, USB drives do not last long if you are writing data to them 24/7. Like a few months tops.
  9. Thanks. I am currently doing maintenance on my rig and I just added in some white sleeved cables to the GPU. I will post pictures after I finish maintenance.
  10. My main rig. Feel free to suggest a name for it. CPU: Intel Core i7 7700K RAM: G.Skill TridentZ RGB 16GB DDR4 (2x8GB) GPU: MSI Geforce GTX 1080 SeaHawk EK X Motherboard: ASUS STRIX Z270F OS Drive: Corsair MP500 240GB NVMe SSD Mass Storage Drive: WD Black 1TB HDD Power Supply: Corsair AX860 Case: Thermaltake Core P3 Snow Edition Cooling: EK Stuff
  11. If you are unable to determine if a server is worth it, you do not have enough experience to be renting out servers. People need to know that if the server fails, their data will be available and that it will be up 24/7 with little to no downtime.
  12. I'm using this old dell with a Pentium 4 and 1GB of RAM and it works fine as a file server. (but 32 bit processors make life hard) Just install CentOS and samba. Since it is running CentOS, it can be used for other stuff. It's so old, it has a PCI card that has phone line dial up connectors on it.
  13. Steal the server's drives, connect them to an identical computer that has USB enabled with exact same specs as the server, and boot it.
