  1. There is no valid reason to do this, though. Windows 7 is end of life and not safe to use online anymore. The only use case for an EOL piece of software is specialised equipment. Any other use case is invalid or stupid. Just my two cents
  2. HP has software that can communicate with the management adapter in the server. That management adapter can see the status of various components, like the RAID controller. Without knowing the exact model of server and RAID controller, there is no real way of answering this question. Also agree on disconnecting it from the internet if not done so already. Windows Server 2008 is no longer safe to have connected to the internet.
  3. I transcode using a Quadro P600. Much cheaper and sufficient for a typical home scenario. A 5600G should be perfect for CPU transcoding without a dGPU, a 16-core is massive overkill unless you need to provide streams for a lot of people, which is unlikely.
  4. Have you formatted the drive yet? it needs a Linux friendly filesystem like EXT4.
  5. ZFS and hardware RAID don't really mix, as you've observed. This is not a Proxmox issue, it's a ZFS "issue" (it's by design, so not really an issue). Both the R720 and DL380 Gen8 have PCIe slots. Put in an HBA and connect the drives to the HBA, then you can see all individual drives in Proxmox to create a ZFS pool. If you don't want to do that, just skip ZFS and use local storage on the created RAID arrays from the PERC/Smartarray controllers.
  6. The first gens could run any OS as it had a Pentium M, Nvidia 7300go graphics and 256MB RAM. Linux, OS X Tiger, technically even Windows, lol. Fun times.
  7. How did you create the boot USB? Rufus always works for me. Use MBR for non-UEFI.
  8. You didn't accidentally try to install FreeNAS in UEFI mode, did you? It won't work in that mode but install fine. Core 2 is too old to support UEFI.
  9. The Alpine is good enough for a Pentium or an Athlon, but not a full blown i5/Ryzen 5 for sure. The stock cooler is actually a good bit better, and that's saying something as the wraith stealth is honestly a turd.
  10. Right, so basically like this: Interface WAN1: ISP1 (Static) Interface WAN2: ISP2 (Dynamic) Interface LAN1: Goal is to allow all traffic to WAN1 and WAN2 Interace LAN2: Goal is to allow traffic to only WAN1 It'd make sense to use two VLAN's or at least two subnets. One subnet contains all resources that need a port forwarding (i.e. a Server VLAN or subnet) and you create an ACL that traffic from that subnet can only go to WAN1 and basically leave the other VLAN/subnet for everything else. That's how I'd design this.
  11. What's your goal? Usually dual WAN is meant for loadbalancing and failover. You can't combine two connections into one, if that's what you're trying to do. You can however have them both be active and let the router decide on which connection to use, based on a loadbalancing algorithm. Maybe this guide helps?
  12. I agree with @xg32. I've run a 2700X, 3600X and 5600X on the same cooler I have now (Corsair H115i) and both the 2700X and 3600X were significantly hotter running chips than the 5600X, which makes sense as they are 105W, 95W and 65W TDP respectively. Objectively, all stock coolers are junk, and especially the Wraith Stealth that the 5600X ships with. The Evo should fare much better. Also make sure you have sufficient airflow and don't try using a PC in a 40C ambient room
  13. Not on an 11 year old graphics card, no. It's simply not supported anymore as of 2018 so versions of photoshop beyond CC 2018 are likely not going to work properly.
  14. The GTX570 is a Fermi card, for which driver compatibility was cut in 2018. Studio drivers weren't a thing yet so Fermi never got any. The latest driver is this one: https://www.nvidia.co.uk/content/DriverDownload-March2009/confirmation.php?url=/Windows/391.35/391.35-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql.exe&lang=uk&type=TITAN If that driver doesn't work, you have two options: - Disable GPU acceleration and forget those features. - Replace the graphics card with a card that has at least a Maxwell core (GTX750/750Ti, GTX9
  15. Changed the board for something more compatible with Ryzen 5000. Same for RAM. These Crucial modules are super stable with the 5600X.
