Minisforum HM80 (Ryzen 7 4800u)
long time no see,
Now after so much time waiting, I finally was able to order something with good pricing,
I hope this will replace my old DL380 servers + ESXi 6.5,
into Mini PC + XCP-NG !
Let us know if it works out of the box or not
Any update on this? I was looking at some of these Ryzen mini computers to use as XCP-NG hosts.
I just ordered one unit for Vates so we can test it internally.
I'll keep you posted on the result.
Some news: it's just shipped from China.
Hopefully it arrives quickly. I'd really like to move my lab from work to home, and that will require small devices with low noise and low heat. I also want a reasonable amount of cores and ram.
yes its working,
but not the second 2.5 Gb ethernet, since it requires newer kernel,
same with PCI passthrough the wifi card is new popular AX200 which requires newer kernel also,
I have USB passthrough a Wifi USB adapter, the speed looks underperforming, but i haven't test the adapter plugged in to laptop and see its speed comparison,
I didnt ask much about it, since I guess its not coorporate use case except closely to edge computing? maybe not too important?
if you need other info, you can tell me, perhaps some logs or debuging, i will share
I've used fully passive Atom Mini-ITX systems from ASrock for oVirt for the last years. Contrary to Intel's documentation they can be upgraded to 32GB of RAM and I've also added 2.5GBit RealTek USB3 NICs for a bit better Gluster throughput.
I currently have one of them running Xcp-ng, unfortunately without support for the 2.5Gbit adapter so far, but the console is working.
The RealTek source code driver is an #ifdef nightmare, it won't compile clean on CentOS7 and I had to patch an older variant by hand to make it work there. Support on CentOS 8 was also a bit shoddy, endless diagnostic messages with the built-in driver, but functional. Abandoned that when CentOS EOL got announced.
Unfortunately Xcp-ng 8.2.1 loses the display on my Ryzen 5800U based notebook, just like all other more recent hardware devices I've tried, so I'm a bit surprised the 4700U works, when it's essentially the very same iGPU: does the Minisforum support legacy boot and did you use that?
Because I'm under the impression that the display loss is related to UEFI issues.
