    Hmm...sounds like your Windows update service is rather badly corrupted.
    See if you can find the service name/files

    This is a tricky one. Give me some time to do more research.

    HP blows goats. They've probably got a whitelist of allowed CPUs in that system, and the one you are trying isn't on the approved list

    Check twice everything - cables, ram etc. You're not the only one with that problem.

    You should look for used GTX 1070 Ti's as they have the same amount of memory (8 GB) but have almost double the number of Cuda Cores. You should find them on Craigslist/Ebay/etc for around 200 USD

    I just did a test run with the Arch wiki and didn't personally have any issues. All I can suggest is to double check everything
    Here is a summary of how I setup my test instances, based off the Arch Wiki
     
    pacman -S samba curl https://git.samba.org/samba.git/?p=samba.git;a=blob_plain;f=examples/smb.conf.default;hb=HEAD > /etc/samba/smb.conf testparm firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=samba firewall-cmd --reload useradd -m sambashareuser smbpasswd -a sambashareuser pdbedit -L -v mkdir /testshare chown sambashareuser /testshare nano /etc/samba/smb.conf added to the bottom bottom [testshare]
      comment = Just a testshare path = /testshare valid users = sambashareuser public = no writable = yes create mask = 0664 directory mask = 2775 force create mode = 0664 force directory mode = 2775 testparm systemctl enable --now smb --------------------------------------------------
    user shares --- groupadd -r sambashare mkdir /var/lib/samba/usershares chown root:sambashare /var/lib/samba/usershares chmod 1770 /var/lib/samba/usershares nano /etc/samba/smb.conf added to [global]
      usershare path = /var/lib/samba/usershares usershare max shares = 100 usershare allow guests = yes usershare owner only = yes testparm systemctl restart smb   gpasswd sambashare -a sambashareuser mkdir  /testusershare chown sambashareuser:sambashare /testusershare net usershare add testusershare /testusershare 'A test user share' sambashareuser:f guest_ok=n

    Um, you could instead just fix those permissions instead, then!

    Just add the following lines to smb.conf for the share:
    This sets the default-permissions for new files and folders on the share.

    SEAL62 reacted to Jarsky in Open VPN Linux Server   
    Thats some good self awareness, and I think we've all fallen into that bubble before. Since Wireguard has really only this year reached public release (1.0) and been included in the linux 5.x kernel, its still very new.
     
    It's biggest advantages are its throughput/latency and its security which I linked above (here: https://restoreprivacy.com/vpn/wireguard-vs-openvpn/)
    It doesnt use as many fall-back cryptograph ic algorithms or ciphers as OpenVPN, but its probably more secure than OpenVPN because of its simplicity. Also being so much more simple, besides being more lightweight, with a smaller codebase as an open source solution its much more easily audited and vetted by security experts. 
    Probably another feather in its cap to how good it is, is that a massive service like Cloudflare Warp is built off the Wireguard libraries

    Distro doesn't really matter, but you might consider Ubuntu Server that has Docker as one of its services installed by default and has really good community support for anything else you might want to run on the server. You could then run it as a Docker
     
    https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/openvpn-as
    https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/wireguard
     
    Also are you particularly tied into OpenVPN? Have you considered Wireguard?
    It is far better in latency and throughput due to differences in the transport protocol, and is extremely secure with the latest cryptography technologies.

    Any distro will do but if you want something server-ish try Debian, CentOS maybe even Arch or Ubuntu Server.
     
    I used this HOW-TO
     
    when I was configuring my OpenVPN on my ArchLinux server.

    You'd need to port forward port 21 (FTP) to your PC's IP address in your router's port forwarding rules. You'd likely also need to allow inbound FTP requests on the Windows firewall. 
     
    I wouldn't advise doing this though, it's a pretty big security risk, especially as FTP is a commonly scanned port and isn't secure. At the very least, you'd want to be using SFTP. 
     
    Best way would be to setup a VPN and give your friends access to it, then lock down which IP addresses users of the VPN can access to prevent access to the rest of the network. OpenVPN and Softether work well for this, or you could set up a Windows Server VM and run an RRAS VPN if you want to go down that route (it's what I personally use for VPN access, tied into a NPAS server)
     
    EDIT: Also, hosting the files on your PC is actually going to be slower than uploading it to a hosting provider. If you have, say, 5 friends that are going to download the full 100GB, you're essentially going to have to upload that 100GB 5 times, one for each friend. If they're all doing it at the same time, it will take 5 times longer than uploading it to a hosting provider. You could upload it once, then all your friends can download it without being limited by your upload speed. 
     
    EDIT2: My actual suggestion would be to pay for a little bit of storage (100GB isn't much for a cloud host) and upload it there and give them access. That way you're not opening security holes in your network, you're not limited by your upload speed after the initial upload and it doesn't require your PC to be on if they want to access the files.

    No without a CPU (or RAM as stated earlier) you won´t be able to install any OS or even get to the BIOS.

    this is inaccurate. while it will still only be dual channel on mainstream intel boards, and it may be more difficult for your CPU's IMC, you can use all ram slots.
     
    OP:
     
    1. reseat the RAM sticks and try again.
    2. if that doesn't work, try resetting CMOS via the method in your manual. Usually there's two pins you short to reset it, or in higher end boards, a button somewhere.

    The Omen Obelisk is nice, and honestly... if that is what you like, rock it.  As @SEAL62 says, get high end components to enjoy in it.
     
     
    It's a good PC, you will be very  pleased with it.

    If that's the goal then certainly not overkill, although I don't think high refresh rate 4k+ ultrawides exist right now (more like a 5k display at that point).
