  1. Here is a link to install Windows 11 on Oracle Virtualbox https://blogs.oracle.com/virtualization/post/install-microsoft-windows-11-on-virtualbox I will test it out and post on how it went.
  2. Hopefully soon Oracle Virtualbox will be able to create a fix. I would like to play around with Window 11 in a virtual machine before deciding on an upgrade. I also concerned about a drop in gaming performance.
  3. I have a HP Gaming desktop with Intel I5-10400 with 12 GB RAM, Nvidia GTX 1650 super, 250 GB m.2 ssd and 1 TB Harddrive. However, before upgrading, I want to test it out first. There are always concerns that every other Windows version is not good.
  4. I have been able to download the Windows 11 Iso. However, before upgrading my Windows 10 desktop computer, I would like to test Windows 11 in a Virtual Machine. Does anyone know if Windows 11 will work in Oracle Virtualbox?
  5. I am trying to find a comparision between External SSD Harddrive Enclosures USB-C 3.1 vs USB-A 3.0. I have a new HP Gaming Desktop. The Desktop has both a USB-A 3.0 and USB-C 3.1 ports. I have a few extra Kingston 240 GB Kingston SSDs. I want to know if it is worthwhile to pay a little bit extra for an external 2.5" hardrive enclosure for USB-C over USB-A. I will place my Steam games on the SSD. Presently, I have the games on a 1 TB Toshiba Sata harddrive. I would appreciate any feedback.
  6. I have recently purchased a HP Gaming Pavilion ie-10400 with 12 GB RAM, 250 GB nvmi ssd, 1 TB hard drive and Nvidia GTX 1650 super. The CPU maintain 60-50 celcius while the GPU reaches 80 celcius. I would like to know if anyone can provide good tips on how to reduce temps on the GPU. Even when I drop from Epic to High graphics settings in some games, the temps remain high. Any suggestions are appreciated.
  7. I recently acquired a Synology DS120J NAS with 4 TB Seagate Hard Drive. I only require 1 TB for my data so far. I would like to know if there are other users on the forum, who might have recommendations for the apps for Synology.
  8. I am contemplating on purchasing VMware. Alternatively, I would like to use hyper-v. I have Windows Home. I would need to upgrade to Windows Pro. Do you use VM Ware?!
  9. I ended up downloading the Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 ISOs again. I think that these ISOs became corrupted on my external hard drive. It did work on my older PC. I run VMs in Oracle Virtualbox for labs.
  10. I have a new HP Pavilion gaming PC. I am attempting to install Windows Server 2016 within Oracle Virtualbox. However, I get an error "Windows failed to start" while using VirtualBox. I attempted these links. However, it did not work to resolve the issue. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/uefi-bug-windows-failed-to-start-while-using/ffd57614-d12f-4ffb-baaa-d860f778157f https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRl-0lcQjdU In BIOS, VT is enabled. In Windows Features, Virtual Machine Platform and Windows Hypervisor Platform are enabled.
  11. Ok. I appreciated the feedback. My Intel i7-3770 power supply died on me and had a bad burning smell. It is a 9 year old computer. It is time for an upgrade. I am currently struggling an an I5-2400.
  12. I am acquiring new desktop compuer which I will be using for Microsoft Office, Zoom, Hyper-V, Plex and light gaming. I am looking for a good power supply calculator for checking if the 360W power supply falls within the power consumption. Which is the best link to check?! I looked at a few calculators. However, I want to be sure. 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-11400 processor(6-Core, 12M Cache, 2.6GHz to 4.4GHz) NVIDIA(R) GeForce(R) GTX 1650 SUPER 4GB GDDR6 16GB, 8Gx2, DDR4, 2933MHz 512GB PCIe M.2 SSD +1TB SATA 7200 RPM HDD 360W Night Sky Bezel Chassis including optical dri
  13. The power supply is 360 Watts. I only would use it of occasional gaming. My steam games include GTA V, Rise of the tomb raider, shadow of the tomb raider, jedi fallen order and cs go. My aim would be to use medium to high settings in order to reach 60 fps. I use dual 21" monitors which run at 60 htz. By year end, I will save up for new monitors. I am more focused on using it for work, plex server and creating virtual machines in oracle virtualbox and hyper-v. I suspect that the I5 11th gen should be good for multitasking. I am currently looking at a budget NAS.
  14. I have overclocked it. However, most modern games must be in 720p instead of 1080p. The i5-2400 is almost 10-years old. 4 cores and 4 threads. An 11th gen I5 should provide better multitasking and responsiveness.
  15. I am currently using an Acer Veriton i5-2400 with 16 GB RAM, 480 GB SSD and Nvidia gt 1030 which is a painful experience.
