Hey Johan,

Can i expect some trouble with the experation of win10 build10565 on july 29th when i have the ram-os disk not functioning at that time?

Unrelated, but otherwise look here :

RAM OS Disk - Upgrade 10565 TRIAL.

Then your swappable bay thing ...

At first glance don't see what the problem could be with such a bay when the PC is in an audio rack. That is, assumed you can assemble it in the front, which usually is possible. Just kick out your DVD assembly (as the last resort) and take something (USB) external for that (the latter costs nothing - 15-20 euros).
If you mean "for in the back" then I can agree, depending on the situation of course.

This one looks nice to me, but could be harder to get :


This will work too but is more expensive and less functional (what with 4x 2.5" swappable ?) :


I don't know about the first one, but all so often these things need brackets to pre-mount the HDD (SSD), like the second one does. This makes it somewhat less versatile. OTOH, if you get yourself that 2nd one, you should have 4 brackets. Happy
N.b.: That IcyDock brands has loads of such things so probably you can find cheaper ones.

Look at tweakers.net for where to get them currently.

eSata I never advise that I know of, because I'd say that it is not said in advance that your PC will boot over eSata.

The story with USB is that it is again not said that it will boot (modern PC's should though), and if it does it is not said at all that this goes fast (I never managed under 20 minutes but that could be me).

Too hot to do it ? ah, depends on what you're used to.
... and for us this is "not much" ... Happy
For now it is "behind the screen" work, right ?

It often appears more difficult than it is. And one is always anxious that we don't stuff it up and have no music, me included.

Follow Peter's instructions closely it works perfectly. I bring up Xxhighend instructions on my tablet which I have beside me and work through the settings on your audio computer.

I'm probably telling you something you already know. I have been printing out metres of Xxhighend instructions and decided recently to use my tablet. I'm over 60 so a bit slow to using new technology.

I used isotousb.com to setup ISO file in USB flashdrive.

Hi Peter,

After i bought the ram-os disk i had a lot of problems with tube amplifiers, computers, external cabinets,....so i did't use the ram-os disk. So i don't know if its the good time(summer)/ temperature (30 degrees)to start to make it working, but i want to make it working now. I have some trouble to find an external cabinet switchable for the 2,5" drive. I'm using a audiorack so i cannot use an build in hot swap bay. Am i correct that your advice is to use esata instead of using usb3?

Can i expect some trouble with the experation of win10 build10565 on july 29th when i have the ram-os disk not functioning at that time?

I hope someone has some suggestions for the external switchable cabinet for the ram-os disk.

I can't emphasize enough that this is not related to any of the BASE OSes;
The TRIAL is your maintenance OS.

Thanks Peter, I'm going to upgrade it, it's just that at first glance it seemed not an easy task.

I can't emphasize enough that this is not related to any of the BASE OSes;
The TRIAL is your maintenance OS. It is the owner of you harddisk (so to speak).

Side note : with tricks you can use the other OSes for maintenance too, but this really is too difficult for most if not all.
You you just need a running OS for that maintenance - just in case and never mind that at this moment you can't even imagine why or what. But if you need to boot into it, you should not be welcomed with a blue screen and a message that a crucial component it missing (which would be the proper date, but you won't really recognize that).

Thank you Fred.  Happy Happy Happy

It is (sort of) quite well known that PC's which take part of the RDC communication require a password. Also, the XXHighEnd scene of PC's require a password anyways, because otherwise insufficient rights exist for various XXHE tasks.
Maybe it hasn't been dealt with the last year (or even 2), but I think the subject passed a couple of times.

Anyway you guys for sure did sort it out completely on your own, so well done ! very well done.

Best regards,

Hi All
Just wanted to chime in with some feedback. I previously had the original Phasure computer and the NOS1a using the RAM OS. I was using a music server to provide music files. Installation of this is beyond my skills so I enlisted the aid of one of my friends to set up the connection between the 2 computer.

Last week the new MachII Stealth arrived. I had my friend back and he reconfigured for the new computer (more on that later) It was playing wonderfully with even better sound than before. It always amazes me how Peter makes the impossible happen. Each time I can't believe it actually sounds more realistic and lifelike. People come to my home and they are literally stunned.

After all was set up last Sunday I decided to remove the video card as recommended. For someone with my limited computer skills this is kind of scary.

I turned the computer back on and I started getting red and blue flashing lights instead of just the cool blue. I shut it down, emailed Peter and went to work for a couple of hours.

No answer from Peter....It was Sunday and he does have a real life after all good

I got home saw an email from Peter saying not sure what was going on and telling me to put it back in for now.
So not wanting to be without music I put back the video card. As it was rebooting I noticed the red flashing light again and then a light flashed in my head Haha
I never waited for the boot process to complete. Removed the video card again (Peter emailed me saying the same thing during this time) and all was well with my world good

Without the video card the sound was much better but I would say not as dramatically improved as with the new Stealth in the system. That improvement just on its own was fantastic. Removing the card is the icing on the cake.

I would be remiss if I did not make one comment: F*cking Windows !
My friend had a real tough time getting it all setup and Windows 10 is the culprit. He is not certain but what he thinks happened was since I wanted as easy access as possible, he set up the server user with no password. While Windows gave no messages or warnings, it was not allowing the Stealth to see the server music files until we set up the user on the server with a password. Once he did that it saw the drive and not until then. Pretty bogus if you ask me.

That's it for now. Gotta go listen.
 One thing that never sounds boring
