Just sold off my Threadripper rig and built a more down to earth Ryzen 7 based machine.
I'm using a Ryzen 7 2700X CPU on an X470 motherboard, an Asus TUF X470 Plus Gaming
I have set up a WD 256GB PCIE x4 NVMe as my boot drive, six 500GB laptop drives in RAID10, and a second AData 128GB PCIE x2 NVMe with the intention to use the AData drive as a cache for the RAID (the motherboard has two M.2 slots, but only one works at x4, the other runs at x2)
However, when I try to install StoreMI, it keeps saying the the software is only licensed for Ryzen 400-series PCs. Last I checked the X470 falls into the category.
Is it because Hyper-V is enabled on this machine? I need Hyper-V to be enabled as I intend to develop Android apps on the machine as well as run games, and Visual Studio uses Hyper-V to run Android apps.
Please help, thanks.
Edit: created a second boot profile wih Hyper-V disabled. No difference, still complains that the motherboard and CPU doesn't qualify.
This from STOREMI USERS GUIDE: https://www.amd.com/system/files/2018-04/AMD-StoreMI-Users-Guide.pdf
See if the Pre-install Checklist matches your computer setup.
Plus you might want to read STOREMI FAQ that might give clues on how to get your setup to work with Storemi.
I see. No AMD RAID. I'll give that a shot. Just wondering tho- why am I not allowed to use AMD RAID to manage the HDD backend? StoreMI configures the disks as JBOD which according to a friend, isn't going to offer me reliability or speed, this especially since my backing SSD is a cheap AData SSD and not a brand name Samsung which kinda increases my concern in regards to the reliability. Currently the hard drives are configured as RAID10.
As for secure boot, I don't think it would be an issue, as I mentioned before the machine has two NVMe drives, one is destined to be the boot drive while the other is destined to be a StoreMI store.
Ugh, second issue after installing StoreMI: not allowed to use more than two HDDs as slow tier drive. Sorry, but per my specific requirement, I need 6 drives.
Really disappointed by this experience. Nowhere was it mentioned that there is a two slow tier drive limit. I'm switching back to using RAID10, just too bad I can't use the SSD as a fast tier drive. I'll live, but I am severely disappointed by the experience.
