Supermicro | Products | Motherboards | Xeon® Boards | X10SRH-CF

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/01

I still like this board: [WayBackSupermicro | Products | Motherboards | Xeon® Boards | X10SRH-CF.

It’s in my main virtualisation workhorse, uses little power, has loads of disk (SAS/SATA) ports, IPMI, two network connections and enough slots for memory and I/O to be extensible.

I use it for most of my software development even when on the road: VPN home over one of the fiber connections and it screams.

Some links, as SuperMicro tends to hide them behind POST requests:

Windows 10: mounting an ISO to a specific drive letter and keeping that drive letter after boot

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/01

I tried finding a way with the built-in Windows tools to keep an ISO mounted to a specific drive letter (some software remembers the drive letter it got installed from and disallows changing it).

I couldn’t. Luckily there is WinCDEmu which supports more formats than the built-in Windows tools as well.

[WayBackWinCDEmu – How to keep images mounted

  1. Right click the ISO file
  2. Choose Select drive letter & mount
  3. In the popup dialog, put check marks if you need any of these options:
    • Disable autorun for this time
    • Keep drive after restart

So I can add that to the list of WinCDEmu features I wrote about before (from newer to older):

WinCDEmu is open source; if you want to build it from scratch, you need these repositories:

Windows 10 Feature Focus: Backup and Recovery – Thurrott.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/01

I totally forgot that the Windows 7/8/8.1. stuff (that makes a back-up to VHD/VHDX) is still in the Control Panel:

While Windows 10 doesn’t actually add any new backup or recovery tools, it provides great upgrades to the tools it previously offered in Windows 7 and 8.
