    Using the „Install HD Audio Drivers“ feature will do that, incl. correct signing and without the need to press F8 during each boot. this will ONLY work if the feature is directly used after booting via F8 and disable the driver signature enforcment for that one boot.

    I will have a close look at what changed between b32 and b34. But as „warned“ before, there are only things that hav been added, not removed. This makes things a bit more complex not to say not logical... Is anybody else encountering the exact same problem?

    Yes, the new features of AO are „unfuzzing“ these things and make more and more drivers work again. depending on your driver, you need those new features or not.

    No, at least not for KS itself. depending on your Driver it still might be needed

    Microsoft tightened Security a lot with Server 2019, thats the reason for all this fuzz....

    Try a reset using ServiceTool before you install FOD

    Hi I see. But the hd audio driver option was added. There was nothing removed with the newer betas, only added. Very weird. could you successfully install the FOD iso? Any others using same DAC and facing same issue or all OK?

    Sequence looks OK to me. Not every DAC likes it if the plug n play service is disabled. But if you disabled it in the past, it is of course OK to do so. this for sure is OK:

    There was noting removed in the new beta‘s, only features added. If it worked in previous versions it has to work in this one by far. not sure what is going wrong. All others seem to do fine

    Hello Why did you run ServiceTool right after install of AO, what was your intention to do so? Please try uninstalling and reinstalling your driver. best, AudioPhil

    Well in GUI mode everything is already there for WASAPI so there‘s no real need to run the WASAPI Injector (ao -wasapi)

    Yes you need to do this on top of the normal steps if you want WASAPI on Server 2019 👍🏼 Great to hear its working now. see the detailed step by step guide here:

    No, i wouldn‘t worry about that. Almost everything that comes with the FOD ISO has an „on demand“ character.
  15. i've done intensive research and testing during many years and countelss parts on this topic. My take on it is this: Internally connected SSD's sound best. CF cards sound even better, but setting up windows might be too complex for some and you need a 600$ CF card if you want it to last for years. The commonly available cf cards mostly break down within a few months of usage, they are just not made for the load running an operating system puts on them. So SSD's are the way to go in my opinion. They are insanly fast, use almost no power, generate very low noise floor and are way cheap enough nowadays. Interestingly an M.2 drive should sound better than SSD. But in my opinion a good SSD connected using an audiophile grade SATA cable still brings the best results by far. That's also the reason why we offer a collection of excellent SATA cables in our shop -> https://shop.highend-audiopc.com/en/sata-cables Since those cables aren't cheap one needs to know where to put them first. If for example two SSD's are used to separatly run the OS and store the music data (which is highly recommended!) then two cables are needed. The cable on the OS SSD has way more impact on sound quality than the cable connected with the SSD that actually stores the data. So always connect the best sata cable to the OS drive and the lesser one to the music drive.
