  1. Does anyone know of a software package that allows a user to take a 4k tv and split the screen into separate instances of monitors, each monitor be recognized in the operating system as an independent monitor? Below image might help to visualize what I'm asking. Imagine three other green 1080 boxes, that are each their own independent monitor.
  2. ThreadRipper for application servers?

    On paper ThreadRipper sounds like it would be an awesome architecture for backend web servers that utilize multi-threaded software. Throw in the ability to run up to 2TB of ram in the near future, and it looks even more appealing. Seems like one would be able to significantly reduce the number of servers in their existing backend hardware topology, unless I'm missing something? What would be the reasons against this?
  3. What should I review next?

    TechQuickie idea: How cloud data centers work. For example, how many physical servers are used, how they communicate between each other to share resources, and the role of hypervisor software.
  4. Windows 10 install issue

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention! Probably saved me another panic attack.
  5. Windows 10 install issue

    Can you explain to me why I would need to do this if the drive didn't work in either motherboard? One UEFI and one Non-UEFI. I have also installed windows 7 on the machine in question via usb twice in the past. Not sure what "EFI startup and GPT drive" are?
  6. Windows 10 install issue

    It does. The second machine I tested it in does not.
  7. Windows 10 install issue

    Greatly appreciated kind sir and or madam. Now I get to wait 3 - 4 days for it to download via my horrible internet connection. Thanks Microsoft!
  8. Windows 10 install issue

    I have confirmed it is the usb drive. I attempted the install in another machine, and it had the same issue. Does anyone have a link to where I can download windows 10 pro 64bit iso? Like a legit link? I've been stumbling around the micro$oft site, but sh!ts confusing.

    I purchased it off of newegg: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832588529&cm_re=windows_10_thumb_drive-_-32-588-529-_-Product

    A pcie port. Second one down from the top of that board, underneath my gpu.
  11. Windows 10 install issue

    It's using pcie. I have the 240gb version of this guy here.
  12. Windows 10 install issue

    I bought the drive pre-loaded with windows 10, and don't have an iso to reformat it with. I suppose I could find one though. I may try putting the drive in another pc and seeing if I can get past that error. That would tell me it's something with my machine and not the drive.
  13. Windows 10 install issue

    I'm afraid it doesn't get that far. I insert the windows 10 usb drive, power on the pc, go into my boot menu and select the drive, a screen appears and says copying files, then once it completes I receive the screenshot in my original post. For a brief moment (half a second or less) the windows 10 icon will display before showing that screenshot.
  14. Windows 10 install issue

    I am attemtping to install windows 10 and I receive the following error message directly after "copying files" completes: File: \windows\System32\drivers\tcpip.sys The operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors. My hardware is as follows (if more required please feel free to ask): > Asus sabertooth 990fx mobo > FX8350 CPU > XFX RX480 GPU > Kingston HyperX Predator m.2 pcie g2 x4 solid state drive 240GB I am attempting to install via a usb drive which I purchased and payed almost $200 for specifically to avoid problems like this...lot of good that did. Before install I used dban to wipe windows 7 from the drive to prevent any conflicts. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm not sure how to proceed at this point.
