Should a late 2012 Mac Mini be able to drive these two monitors?

A Raven MTi2, which is 1080p on HDMI, and an LG 34U97, which is 3440×1440 on Mini DisplayPort. It works sometimes, but after an hour or so the LG just says “Out of Range”. Sometimes with them both plugging in, the Raven gets a messed up display while the LG is blank. Either one works just fine on its own. I’ve tried replacing the cable several times, making sure in particular that the MiniDP one is rated for that resolution.

Answers like this suggest it’s not possible, but why does it work sometimes?

Apache web service inaccessible from external IP/DNS host name (Windows Server 2012, Apache 2.4, xampp 3.2.3)

For the record:

  • I am running a VM of Windows Server 2012, (with apache, php, and XAMPP installed) using VMware Workstation 15.
  • My VM NAT is in bridged mode and other services on the server are accessible.
  • My ISP blocks forwarding port 80.
  • I have a Domain registered through no-ip to work around both the Dynamic External IP, and my ISP’s restrictions on port 80.
  • I have checked sites like and I am not “down”. All ports are registering as accessible.

My issue:

When I try to access my website externally, (from using the DNS Lookup on my computer, or on my phone with Wi-Fi turned off, I get an error message stating “Ex.ter.nal.IP sent an invalid response”

When I check on my Lan (using the Internal IP for the VM) my access log reads as follows:

In.ter.nal.IP - - [20/May/2019:11:53:59 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 3178 In.ter.nal.IP - - [20/May/2019:11:53:59 -0500] "GET /style.css HTTP/1.1" 200 3145 In.ter.nal.IP - - [20/May/2019:11:53:59 -0500] "GET /logo.png HTTP/1.1" 200 60058 In.ter.nal.IP - - [20/May/2019:11:53:59 -0500] "GET /backgournd.jpg HTTP/1.1" 200 185050 In.ter.nal.IP - - [20/May/2019:11:53:59 -0500] "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1" 200 1406 

When I try to access with my phone, I get:

Ex.ter.nal.IP1 - - [20/May/2019:11:54:44 -0500] "\x16\x03\x01\x02" 400 1010 "-" "-" Ex.ter.nal.IP1 - - [20/May/2019:11:54:44 -0500] "\x16\x03\x01" 400 1010 "-" "-" Ex.ter.nal.IP2 - - [20/May/2019:11:54:45 -0500] "GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1" 200 1406 "http://my.ddns.lookup/" "Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; Android 6.0.1; My_Phone) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/74.0.3729.157 Mobile Safari/537.36" 

There is no Error Corresponding with the timestamps for the attempt at access

I have tried to follow instructions on the web for hours and I am getting to the ‘slam my head against a brick wall’ level of frustration.

What do I need to do?

MacBook 2012 Bootcamp problem

I was trying to install windows 10 on my MacBook Pro 2012, I was following apple tutorial ( I chose 100GB to windows partition. Everything was going great until I came across “no bootable device insert boot disk and press any key” message. I went back in MacOS to remove the Bootcamp partition to repeat the process again, but I couldn’t find it. Here are some prints from disk utility: enter image description here enter image description here

what can I do to undo and resize the original MacOS partition to try to do the bootcamp again?

Thank you in advance and have a great weekend!

Windows 2012 DHCP Server Won’t Start – 1053 Another DHCP Server on the network

I run a small office that uses windows server 2012 on a domain. This evening I installed some updates and rebooted. I noticed that the DHCP server would not stay up. I looked at the event viewer. It provides error 1053, another DHCP server on the network and provides the IP,

I don’t recognize that IP. I ran angry IP scanner to scan my network and the ping time for that IP is 315ms, a lot longer than all the other devices around.

How do I get rid of this other DHCP server or get it off my network?

Ошибки при резервном копировании Windows 2012 R2

Есть контроллер домена Windows 2012 R2, системная дисковая система RAID1 (2хSSD) на встроенном контроллере. Из дополнительных ролей стоит только DHCP. Настроена полная ежедневная локальная архивация на отдельный физический HDD диск. Практически каждая операция архивации завешается с ошибками:

Один из компонентов системы является несогласованным в теневой копии, созданной для архивации. Сведения об ошибке: Повторяющаяся ошибка средства записи. Эта ошибка вероятно будет возникать снова при повторении попытки архивации.

Запуск утилиты Intel Rapid с проверкой и исправлением ошибки исправляет, но на следующий день процедура архивации снова завершается с теми же ошибками.

Что это может быть? Менять диски или что-то не так настроено.

Upgrade MacBook Pro Mid 2012 system to Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500GB (Mac OS Mojave)

I have different information related to installation new SSD.

If we will try search through Amazon help it shows that the disk Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500GB will work fine with MacBook Pro 13 inch Mid 2012:

Also I saw this video where all works good as well for similar system.

But my disk recognized as uninitialized in my Mac OS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E227):

I tried diskutil as well to format my disk and here is an error after some time waiting for creating portion map:

diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ SAMSUNGSSD disk1 Started erase on disk1 Unmounting disk Creating the partition map Error: -69825: Wiping volume data to prevent future accidental probing failed 

Also first time there was another error: error: couldn't open device

Before this Samsung SSD 860 EVO I have KINGSTON SSD SATA3 240gb disk and all worked good for me. But few days ago Mac OS accidentally crashed and after restart I just saw flashed question-mark folder. I bought new Samsung SSD 860 EVO. Now I am trying to format my Samsung SSD 860 EVO but because of some reason I can’t do it not at terminal nor using disk utility.

I read some information about replacing SATA cable, but not sure I need to do it as my previous KINGSTON SATA 3 SSD worked good with the same cable. Maybe port or cable is corrupted I don’t know, but not sure if my cable model is different to one that user suggest to buy to make it work:
