I knew the day was coming when my trusty EX470 would die...
So recently it has started failing to boot, i get 2 blue leds. and the red one flashes, the fans pulse and it wont boot at all.
I have replaced the CMOS battery and that seemed to fix it for a week, but now it is back to not wanting to boot.
If i take the thing apart and put it all back together it boots first time.
Apparently 2 blue and 1 red is a BIOS error, but why would the BIOS just fail? It seems a few people have had the same issue recently with the EX470/475.
That's so creepy, my EX470 has EXACTLY the same thing. It will occasionally start up. But most of the time i just get the 2 blues lit and the red light flashes with the fans pulsing on and off. When it starts up i can still get to everything and it works fine, it just doesn't always like to start up.
Sorry, I don't understand when you say that "clearly I am going to need to upgrade my server OS too." why would you have to clearly update your server OS ?
WHS2011 with the UEFI hotfix should work just fine. Also, if your not using UEFI hardware on the laptop than you can even backup Windows 10 to WHSv1. That's what I'm doing.
I just got the Windows 10 upgrade notice on my main PC (Win7). So far I had decided to ignore the whole Win10 situation having gone through the unpleasant experience of buying a Win10 laptop for my daughter and despite a lot of effort not being able to get connector to work on the server. Having established a WHS2011 network with mostly Win7 clients (my other daughter has a Win8.1 laptop but fortunately it does connect) I was quite happy having all our data on a server running Drive Bender which regularly backs up the clients, and then Win10 arrived and f***ed that up. But now that I have seen the blue screen of Win10 upgrade I suppose I ought to have a proper think about it. Hence this post. If I go ahead and accept the free upgrade then clearly I am going to need to upgrade my server OS too. Can anyone advise me on this process? What server OS is guaranteed to accept Win10 clients? How painful is the server upgrade process?
