Hi Peter, has it some other advantages besides that the new version takes up less space? In my case with 24GB of memory I have 4Gb free with the current 14393.0 version.

Regards,
Juan

Hey Johan,

After some new releases/updates for the ram disc OS, is there a handy method to get it operate. Or do i have to follow all the steps in release / time order?

I don't think anything has changed anywhere. Or it must be the by now Expired 10565 which could be not handy. If you need to boot into that, set the system date to Sept. 2, 2015.

During all the discussions on the forum about the RAM disc os i have the impression that i need an grafic card or am i wrong?

If you receive that error about "does not fit in memory" at booting from RAM, probably yes. But I would first just try it (I think it does not fail by guarantee).

On the motherboard I have 32MB of ram. Is that a problem for the ram OS disk. I have red your instructions to increment the ram usage for the ram OS. I suppose that i can increment that at a later moment?

Apart from that you mean to say 32GB instead of 32MB, I don't understand.
a. you don't need more memory anyway, 16GB assumed;
b. let alone that you would need more than 32GB.
... OK, it would be correct that you will need more than 32MB, but since your PC will not be from 1985 I am confident that twas a typo.


Now, if all is right you made a provision to exchange the OS Disk easily. This means that "now" you can run the OS you were used to, and 3 minutes later you will boot from the RAM-OS Disk. So ... just try it ?
IIRC it boots into 10586.0 Normal OS. From there you can make slow small next steps. Fed up with it for the day ? then put back in your regular OS Disk and play some music.

Regards,
Peter

Alain, I am quite positive that I sent the link to you right away. But it did not happen for real, I see now.
Apologies !

Coming up (again Wink) right now.

Regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,
A long time ago(i think january 2016) i've bought the ram os disc from you. But i never start the installation proces for different reasons. Several times i started to read the heavy manual. After some new releases/updates for the ram disc OS, is there a handy method to get it operate. Or do i have to follow all the steps in release / time order?

Are the tutorials for the ramdisk OS still actual and compleet?

To small other questions:
During all the discussions on the forum about the RAM disc os i have the impression that i need an grafic card or am i wrong? I'm using the graphic card on the motherboard.
On the motherboard I have 32MB of ram. Is that a problem for the ram OS disk. I have red your instructions to increment the ram usage for the ram OS. I suppose that i can increment that at a later moment?

Best regard,

johan

Hey Peter,

I sent an email for the Win 10 build 14393.0 download (the "smaller" revised version)... ?

Thanks,

Alain

Hey Paul,

Thank you for this.
I will try to lower the SFS myself although I don't have the slightest hunch to want it for any reason.

The "thicknes" you describe in the mid range could be exactly what I like. To give an example : it (to my ears) makes Sergant Pepper sound exactly right.  But it is also one of the reasons that Love now sounds completely different from their counterpart originals (think the lead-ins and -outs out of the way for Love, of course), which a year ago still sounded the same to me. Today the "remaster" Love is indeed that and again flawed (to my ears).

Btw, that was meant as a positive. Happy

Oh, I too do not suffer from heavily varying SQ changes from day to day any more.

Regards !
Peter

Just thought I would provide an update on my experiences with the Stealth LPS. The sound quality has remained stable since my last post and is consistently the same every night. It also sounds consistently the same regardless of whatever else is plugged in nearby and whatever earth arrangement I have set up. However, having said that I have become more and more aware of what I perceive to be a "thickness" or maybe "slowness" to the sound in the mid range. It has taken me quite a while to start to become aware of this. So last night I played with the latency settings. I found that reducing SFS to 2 and Q1 factor to x1 really improved the sound (to my ears anyway). Gone is the thickness and the sound is fast and lively where to my ears it should be. 

I have not really explored what is the ideal setting yet but it seem that if SFS is reduced below 2 the SQ starts to suffer a bit in the higher registers.

Of course the PC is working harder with the lower SFS setting and maybe that is just introducing some artificial edge to the music - but that is not how it sounds to my ears. The sound is cleaner and "faster" now just how I like it.

By the way I tried lower latency settings when I first got the Stealth but ouch it really did not work when the sound had that pre burn in hard edge to it. Now however all has changed.

And the SQ - simply excellent I have absolutely no inclination to tinker there is just too much music to be listened to.

 Happy

Cheers

Paul

And Anthony ... if you respond, please be prepared for some quick back and forth communication so we can solve this quickly for you. Of coure I will need to find your first response so wait a bit for that, but after that we keep on going ...

Meanwhile and to apply some shortcut, give me your log file of this situation. Do this to let that happen :

0. Be sure to not have any USB sticks etc. in there which may occupy Drive D:. Notice that D: is (to be) reserved for the RAM OS Disk when booted from anything but the TRIAL. Check whether this indeed is so (C: is where you booted from (RAM or BASE) and D: is available and is the RAM-OS Disk).

1. Reboot into a for you working version (RAM is fine, but do not remove the Disk).

2. Go to the location of XXHighEnd (always drive C: (!!)) and remove the log files from the TemporaryData sub folder.

3. Start XXHighEnd (no need to switch on Logging).

4. Go to Stop-RightClick - Boot Into.

5. Grab the log files and post them as attachment.

From there, but please including your followed "procedure" (so I can try to prevent the issue for a next) I am sure we will be able to get you going again.

Regards,
Peter

Edit : I split the further posts about this issue to this topic : Adding 14393.0 to the menu failed.

Hi again Coen,

I can see what is wrong in there and I can't tell how it happened. But some OS quirk.

I think we can solve it like this :


1. Boot into the 14388 (the one named "W10" by you) (you will be in that one anyway)

2. Go into XX's Boot Menu (Stop-RightClick - Boot Into).

3. Tick the checkbox in the Remove Column of W10-10565 BASE.

4. Do the same for W10-10586.0 BASE.

5. Click Apply.

6. Click Refresh.

7. Click New (also see screenshot below).

8. For Name enter W10-10565 BASE.

9. Drop down the field to the right of it and pick MyW10-10565.vhd.

10. Untick the RAM checkbox.

11. Click Apply.

12. Click Refresh and check whether your newly added W10 10565 BASE is there again.

13. Repeat steps 7 u/i 12 for W10 10586.0 BASE.


All good ?
Then boot into W10 10586.0 BASE (don't forget to click Apply after the selection of the OS). It should work again.

Regards,
Peter

I need to boot into a BASE version to set the network mapping for the music and streaming directories.

Notice the emphasized "a".

You need to boot into the BASE version of the one you want to use from RAM (and theoretically it could be all of them).
