If it involves computers or electronics, I probably do it.

I have experience with Exchange, Sharepoint, Zabbix, Powershell, Hyper-V clusters, and a whole host of other things.

If you need to contact me, my email address is grant@emsley.ca

comment PCI INT A disabled
We need a LOT more information to go on here - what model of network cards? Where do you see "PCI INT A disabled" and what other lines surround it? What model of machine? Are the interfaces onboard or PCI or PCIe? Have you tried connecting a different interface to the network? What relevant lines are in dmesg? Is the network card driver built into the kernel or a module? Is the module loaded and are there any errors when it loads?

Managed switches don't block things unless you configure them to - so if you DIDN'T setup any sort of filtering on the switch, then that's not the issue.

comment USB Thumb Drive not recognized in Hyper-V Manager
This is a good way to use your USB drive, but it is NOT a solution for installing the OS, which is what the question asks about. You can't RDP to a HyperV VM that has no OS installed on it yet...

This is offtopic since we don't do product recommendations. However...you might want to look at these: monoprice.com/… they have worked very well for our office to add extra monitors.

comment Cisco switch, white residue in switch ports
Assuming there is no warranty on these switches I would pop the case off and see what it looks like inside.

@sobrique in this context KVM likely stands for kernel based virtual machine -linux-kvm.org

comment What is a reasonable maintenance schedule for Windows PCs?
RAID on desktop class systems often causes more problems than it solves, causing data loss when the controller or motherboard fail and identical replacements aren't available. Sometimes even WHEN identical replacements are available.
