Anyone to let me know what could be the possible cause of nvOC not booting up?

Often times I get a black screen and it will stay that way for 15+min. So far, the only possible solution to this problem is to reinstall nvOC on my usb

I have the same CPU so it isn't that. Is your display plugged into the onboard video or the GPU?  Does the MOBO post?

It could be an issue with the USB flash.

how to recover the usb key with nvoc installed ? can't format this :-(

thanks

On windows I'm assuming, easy way is this way

Launch command line in administrator status
type "diskpart"
list disk (find the one that is your USB key
select disk # (# is the one you see from the list disk)
clean
Go to computer management it will now show up to format, click on it new simple format.
Profit!

I use this windows GUI tool for wiping thumb drives.   Make sure you check the box for "perform quick wipe."  

It's from HDD Guru, the same folks who make the HDD Raw Copy Tool imaging software OP recommends.

http://hddguru.com/software/HDD-LLF-Low-Level-Format-Tool/

i don't like anything that has so many tiers and trials and shit - looks sketchy as hell.

just use rufus it's been used for years to wipe drives and proven track record of being safe

https://rufus.akeo.ie/



Tiers and trials?  It's freeware.  Just click continue.  

I've been in systems admin for 20 years and use this tool professionally.  It's not sketch at all, LOL.  I netstat my system all the time looking for rogue network activity and have never found a problem with HDD LLF.  I initially found this tool when I had a flash drive that windows refused to format and this fit the bill.

I will say I do like rufus though, so at least we can agree on that.  That's what I use for creating pen linux images.  Rufus doesn't offer low level format though.  HDD LLF does.

Tents can be had on craigslist and the like from $100 on up.  Ebay too I'd imagine.  Brand new they're $250+ last I knew.  The same concept could be accomplished with some 2x4s and some visqueen plastic + a staple gun and duct tape for the budget-minded, but I'm not a big fan of having wood around this kind of amperage.  The tents are somewhat fire-retardant (designed to be used with 1000W sun lamps running 12-24 hours a day) and the frame is steel poles.  They also have lots of different openings/ports at varying heights.  The one I have was used many years ago when I had a garden to start tomato plants in the spring, but it's been collecting dust for almost 4 years and I thought this would be a great way to get some use out of it.  I'll post pics when I get around to assembling everything.

I did find some OC numbers my EVGA 1070s like and run stable at: -200/1100, ~29.1 MH/sec ETH.  

Thanks again for everything.  Really looking forward to v0016!  

$250 is more than I want to spend on a tent; but if I can find a used one, I'll probably get it and try it out.  I have used plastic to control airflow before and it was effective.

Good to know stable EVGA 1070 settings for ETH.

Hi,

I'm using a MSI Z170A SLI PLUS motherboard, will it be compatible with nvOS?

Thanks

I haven't tried that mobo; so I'm not sure.  If you use more than one GPU I would expect it to work without changes; some bios settings might need to be changed / the bios might need to be updated.  With the MSI z170a Gaming 5 only 4x GPUs worked before I flashed the bios.  Also you MUST use powered risers only with MSI z170a mobos.

I like rufus; I have used it for years, it can also be used to image the USB.  

I think the hddRawCopy tool, is easier to use for members who have less experience imaging; there are also a lot of members who are already familiar with it from smOS.

I use an img format for the image; specifically to enable the use of most imaging programs.

This one is also easy to use and is available for mac / linux and windows:

fullzero sorry i haven't pulled the trigger on this i really do want to but windows is just so damn easy to set up and use.

Hate it as you will - 99% of the influx into the mining scene will be people that can't find their ass from the keyboard, let alone know what Linux is - so I'm just throwing some thing out there for you to consider

Since you are marketing this as "easy-to-use Linux Nvidia mining" here are some things that KEEP me on M$ crappy Win10

Ease of use -
  • Windows - obviously it's very familiar and easy to use for the layman
    MSI Afterburner - easy to control GPU's
    .bat files easy to alter
    Remoting in extremely easy - TeamViewer

If someone wants to use windows to mine; that is fine.  As a long time miner I wouldn't recommend it; but whatever floats your boat.

However most of your reasoning is; misinformed.

First; Ubuntu 16.04 is GUI based and easy to use.  With nvOC it takes considerably less time to configure and start mining than it does using windows.

Second; I think it is easier to edit OC values in a bash file myself: but if you are so inclined you can also use the nvidia gui interface (very similar to AB ) with nvOC.

Third; a bat file is derivative of a bash script; it is essentially the windows version of a bash script; I don't understand how that is supposed to be different.

Finally; You can install teamviewer on nvOC; several members have already done this.

PS: you can install windows 10 without a key; this is not "pulling one over on Microsoft": they simply use more of your computers resources for their botnet when you don't have a key.  You are essentially turning your computer into a Microsoft server, when you install windows 10 without a key.

If I run across a good deal on one I'll PM ya.  

Regarding EVGA 1070 FTW settings: I may have spoken prematurely.  I did experience a claymore reset overnight.  I will be trying an MC of 1050 and then 1000 if necessary to see if I can get it to run without anymore Claymore drops.  At least when it does drop it immediately resumes, so I'm only losing ~45 secs of hashing, but I know from a long term standpoint it's probably unwise not to address it, so I will dial it back just a bit to pursue 100% error-free operation.

I received my 14th card from Fedex this morning, so now both rigs are running 7 GPUs.  The newest addition is an MSI 1070 Armor.  It's been hashing along for 45m now along with it's EVGA 1070 FTW & SC cousins at the same -200/+1100/125W settings they use so off to a good start.  I do notice the MSI runs about 7-8C hotter than the EVGAs do (they average around 51C at 70% fan speed).

Also my HDMI dummies showed up today, so I can shut off these monitors and save a few watts of power now.

Same happens to my on putty, 9x gtx 1060 3gb

Try the procedure from this post and tell me if it solves the problem:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg19449945#msg19449945

Also, if you are connecting a monitor directly to the motherboard; connect it to the primary GPU instead (one connected to the first 16x slot closest to the CPU).

Hey fullzero,

The other issues I've had were resolved automagically - no idea what happened.

Anyhow, I'm encountering a new issue when starting the server:

-I get stuck at the Ubuntu login prompt. m1 is selected as a user and I enter miner1 as a password - I don't get logged in, the screen refreshes and I get put back into the login screen.

Any idea what might be causing this? I'd like to prevent this particular issue from happening as I'll be deploying nvOC to multiple servers and getting everything to work automatically would be awesome.

Edit: I have already tried this - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg18789262#msg18789262
Edit 1: Tried this as well - http://www.linuxslaves.com/2016/05/3-ways-fix-ubuntu-gets-stuck-login-loop.html = no luck
Edit 2: Will try a fresh install again. It might be a one-time thing

Do the servers you plan on using have more than 1x GPU?

Thanks again for everything.  Really looking forward to v0016!  

I'm having trouble OC my cards. I have 4x EVGA 1070 SC. Am I doing this right?

I could not get it working by setting INDIVIDUAL_CLOCKS="NO" and I set the individual clocks and -200/1100 to 2 GPUs to see if it worked. I'm still getting 26MH/s.

Note: I'm not sure how to check memory type in Linux. I might have Micron memory.




I can get it working on my 1 card W7 rig:



Are you using a single GPU?

if so look at this post:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1854250.msg19449945#msg19449945

let me know if this is the case / if this fix works

I have experienced that exact same issue and it was with 7x gpu (the 7x 1070  reference/founders rig).  I threw in a freshly imaged drive and it has not reoccurred.

Does setting MEMORY_OVERCLOCK=800 like setting 'MEM CLOCK OFFSET=+800? Do you have any reading material on this? I cannot find anything to help me.

When using a positive offset OC:  DO NOT use the + sign:

However; when using a negative offset OC:  YOU MUST use the - sign.

Lxde would be a much lighter GUI than Unity.

I will 2nd the props for lxde, I have used it on debian and ubuntu EC2 cloud builds (video CDN) and can attest that it is very light on resource usage.  It would likely be an excellent base for nvOC.

It's also fairly easy to use xrdp w/ lxde to run vnc over rdp so wind0ze users can connect via rdp and not have to install any 3rd party apps for remote access.  https://comtechies.com/how-to-set-up-gui-on-amazon-ec2-ubuntu-server.html

@dev.

Your zip file is unzippable with ubuntu (error message), only with Windows..

Via wich command in your script can you made +500 MH at the memory clock : nvidia-smi don't accept a so big value (I do'nt ask how the user of your script do that, it is the the conf file, but how you have done this, with wich command ?).

Interesting: I will test unzipping with linux.

How much you can set the OC offset is dependent on the specific card / cards you are using.  If you are using multiple different cards you can only use OC values that are valid for all of them when using the general core and memory OC.

If you want to find the limit for a specific card, you can enter a manual OC command for the card in the guake terminal (that you know to be invalid) you will then get a message telling you the valid range for clocks on that card.

You must use individual card clocks to be able to fully OC different cards on the same rig.

Anyone to let me know what could be the possible cause of nvOC not booting up?

Often times I get a black screen and it will stay that way for 15+min. So far, the only possible solution to this problem is to reinstall nvOC on my usb


MOBO asus prime z270p

nvidia 1070

By any chance did you:

forget to unzip the image before you imaged the USB?

This is true.

If I end up making a lightweight version eventually; I will build it with arch:

I think the Ubuntu RDP application also works with windows, but I will have to test it.

Anyone have any suggestions to this problem, I am all ears.

I have one of my rigs which uses a Asus Prim z270-a when I put the 6th GPU in it will not POST to the bios screen therefore not start up.

From troubleshooting it only happens if I have 2 GPUs plugged into the X16 slots, if I only have one it works fine.

I have changed the BIOS to the recommend from the thread here for the z270-a and set it all to GEN2.

Any other suggestions?
