Cannot boot pimp on ssd



  • You are right. Negative energy (for example the one which comes from anger) attracts more negativ energy. But if someone tells the truth it doesnt mean he/she is angry.

    The biggest problem is that the product is advertised as very easy to deal with. And now you admit it. It can be easy if you are very experienced in Linux/Unix platforms or if you have luck that everything works withuout knowing why.

    So, i tried it and I dont see any problem to put even more effort into it. Before i do that, I need to ask you following (to see if there are any benefits for me or this is just different approach of enthusiasts, who like Linux better and believe that they are more efficient with this approach).

    A) As I can see, I cannot run the rig with mixed GPU`s (nVidia and AMD chipset). Am I right?
    B) What do I gain with your system? Can I count on better hashrate? Or ...? (We have remote managment, wake up, ... on windows for example)

    So, lets presume that we will build rigs on this platform and at then end we will succeed. My biggest concern is what will happen later. If something goes wrong, we will need a week or two to start them again, as we are not Linux professionals.

    I am very thankful for your answer. Have a good night.

    Hello ales. Of course, most people have a very easy time and it works according to the documentation. In your case it has not been so easy. We are very disappointed that our product was not for you. Please provide your order number and we will provide you a refund immediately.

    The product is very easy for many, in fact most users. The path to understanding requires growth and time no matter the vehicle you choose. Pimp is here to help and support you, get you to the working end with the best hash rates and reliability in the end.

    We also provide a community that helps in every way they can. Sharing tips, hits, help. As for running with mixed GPU's, there are enough kernel changes required to support AMD or NVIDIA, that its always been best to run with an os built for one or the other. Deep kernel changes are required. But, this is requested a lot, and we are listening. More to come later about this... sorry to be a tease, but..

    You gain stability and support for a huge number of alt coins, quick inclusion of new miners, updates to existing miners, tunable and tradeable configs to maximize payouts. As for imaging, its normally not an issue with folks. So I continue to be baffled where the issue lies on your side. I cannot replicate it myself. Using drive images is supposed to remove the need for you to learn linux. You make the working image in the OS of your choice, then just boot it up...

    So I am not sure what to offer you anymore man. I really do not mean to offend you in any way. I know it sucks to have an exceptional issue that does not impact others... its hard for us to see whats wrong when we can make it break the way you do.



  • hey melt

    thank you for your offer. here is my order number: 9850.

    Ales

    Try us again in the future. Maybe you will have success. Thanks for trying!



  • I've been running into problems with this as well. I've tried Imaging the AMD 2.3.3 version onto a 32 gig SSD using dmde and HD Raw, when I boot it comes up with the grub prompt nothing else. I had this rig up and running with pimp OS in the past so it may be a change with the image. As far as I can tell it's a failure with grub not finding the CFG file when I look in Partition to I can see the grub directory but when I try to access it it says invalid Extant. I will try to post images of my issue later.

    New Release 2.4.1 should resolve this issue. Have a great day!!!



  • @anjin thats how i got here, lol.
    @melt thanks melt. My boss is having me build a rig to run at the office and I want to run it on Pimp vs Windows, so i am refreshing my knowledge of Pimp by reactivating my license. When is 4 being released?

    MISSING.


  • Staff

    pmwhitfield, use the newest 2.4.1 image. It will probably solve your issues. Was released today.
