  1. I've tried everything and nothing works. On Windows, Rufus returns this error and on Linux, every time I try to repair/format the drive, I just get a Input/Output error. Altough I don't like contributing to E-waste, it had to go because now I could not even format it to EXT4 anymore. Thanks for helping anyways
  2. Windows also recognizes and can format drives to FAT32 and exFAT.
  3. After entering "create partition primary", this error comes up. No usable free extent could be found. It may be that there is insufficient free space to create a partition at the specified size and offset. Specify different size and offset values or don't specify either to create the maximum sized partition. It may be that the disk is partitioned using the MBR disk partitioning format and the disk contains either 4 primary partitions, (no more partitions may be created), or 3 primary partitions and one extended partition, (only logical drives may be created).
  4. I was using an old 64gb USB drive for a Ubuntu Server deployment and formatted it on Ubuntu as ext4. I then reformatted it on Windows as FAT32 and used Rufus to make it into a Ubuntu Server install USB drive. After using it to install Ubuntu Server on a system, I tried formatting it on Windows 10. After waiting for about 30 Minutes (I tried to format as NTFS on GPT table), nothing happened and I had to go to bed. The next day I tried to format it on Ubuntu Server using parted. I did: parted (parted) select /dev/sdc (parted) print (parted) mklabel gpt (parted) mkpart fat32 test 0 62.2G (par
  5. I will mark this as resolved because Q-Logic SFP NICs are not even compatible with Windows 10 anyways and I just made the wrong buying decision.
  6. I just found this. "Gaming PC Test aka. Comparison 2021: Our purchase recommendations and 12 Tips and Tricks about your best Gaming-PC" (Translated from German). This product comparison really annoyed me. Not just because it is wrong but because it is wrong and the average reader does not know it is wrong. A "Shinobee Ultra Gaming-PC" with a GTX 1050Ti and an Athlon-64-FX is not powerful (I could not find the exact price but I'm estimating that it would be around 400€-500€, correct me if I'm wrong) and you probably should not buy one. To the average 40-50 year old reader of this E-Newspaper,
  7. Clarification: the conduit is 3,5m long and can't be replaced. The cable is 30m long and must be entirely pulled through from the top. The house was built in the 60's and the last time someone changed the conduit to one bigger was 20 years ago.
  8. Obviously we're gonna shield it with plastic to protect it.
  9. You all doubted me, but it works perfectly without any problems at 10gbit
  10. Today my suspicions were confirmed when I tried it with my dad's Windows 10 system. It worked perfectly and showed up in Device Manager, seemingly only needing a driver to function normally. That must mean that I either set the setting in the BIOS wrong or my chipset/specific mobo is just not compatible. Linux also did not work, with the card not showing up in hwinfo (with the M.2 ssd removed). Since we have time until all of the other shipments arrive, I'll still look into getting this thing to work with my mobo. I have some spare PCIe 1x 2.0 cards that I could use to test compatibility with
  11. He specified that yeah, it does show up but it does not connect. For me it doesn't even show up in network adapters or device manager. I will try to get a Linux install on a USB HDD and if that does not work, I'll try it with my dad's PC. I also tried putting it in the 16x Slot (in 2.0 mode) with a GT610 in the 8x Slot but it did not show up.
  12. Actually, it isn't the onboard NIC is gigabit and the network adapter is 2x10gbit but it works perfectly with a H310 board.
  13. I bought this cheap old (in 2008 high end) network adapter from eBay with the listing saying that it's supported by Windows 10 (I also found a reddit post stating this). When I got it I removed the backplate (half height by default) and plugged it into a PCIe 4x 2.0 slot on my motherboard (manual says it's 2.0, but in BIOS you can set it to 3.0???) and although the system booted into Windows 10 after three times boot recovery, the network adapter did not show up. I then plugged it into a PCIe 8x 3.0 slot (meant for SLI) and the system booted first try without detecting the network adapter. Aft
  14. I wasn't really asking how to do it, rather I was asking for theories from members and maybe a video testing if it works (if there is one).
