Post New server build
So i'm building a new server. I got my hands on a core 2 quad q6600 with an Asus P5k-e, so i slapped my 4x4gb of kingston PC2-8500 in it and a gigabyte GT210. it's all bundled in my Chenbro rm21909 2u rackmount thats been sitting for a while. the thing is nice, i need to get the sata backplane for it, but it has 6 hotswap bays

anyway, my plan was to run server 2008 r2 and use file services, since its primarily a file server, as well as WDS.

but i also decided to run hyper-v since my test machine at work hasn't shown up yet, and i figured i could use VM's. but now my problem is, the thing seems to have become unstable once i enabled the Xd, it even took a dump on me yesterday and i had to reinstall the OS 6 hours after i did my first install

so now it looks like im ditching hyper-v for standard virtual pc. i should get some pictures of her, she's pretty

really just wondering if anyone else has seen things become unstable after enabling Xd at all though.

I'm guessing either a faulty CPU or motherboard. Maybe update the BIOS?

Never seen it happen before though.

Agreed. You seem to have some underlying hardware issue.

yeah, i've figured that much out

but it only started when I enabled Xd. I'm going to disable it and skip hyper-v in favor of virtual pc or something, of course that will be after i do a good burn in with Xd turned off to be sure its stable again, but i had no issues before enabling Xd. BIOS is up to date, i've already run two different BIOS' and no change.

worse case, i have a Q8300 i could swap in for testing, i just dont want to pull that machine apart, and either way, the chip will only come out of that system for testing since i need that machine

disabled the Xd, she seems fine now. I'm going to do a prime95 test over night me thinks. if she's stable that way ill just skip hyper-v and use vpc or something, i really wanted to play with hyper-v though, more so to say i did.

just to add to this one. I finally switch that CPU out for another C2Q Q6600. turned on Xd, setup hyper-v and she works

the other cpu is still perfectly stable with Xd turned off, so whatever hardware fault it has, is only within those registers. I'm using it for a test system now.

I also scored a P5Q Premium on the weekend. someone thought it was dead and dropped it off to me for recycling, turns out it was a dead Pentium D....I've seen several of those chips dead lately. I've seen more dead Pentium D's than anything else, terrible cpu's those.

The board will be going in this server, with 10 sata ports, it just screams file server
