You can do a couple tweaks. But it's all registry. Keeping a 1709 build around can help too.

Good stuff Brah; but if suggestions do not trigger you then it would have been a good idea to make it "Six" steps, and add "netplwiz" then once you do the last step and put in shell:startup, once you start your miner then it will enter the password too and be in an endless loop until you hit Ctrl+C. Just a suggestion .. just say'in bra. Very Respectfully, WX2 Addendum: I guess you cover the power state setting in the bios in the next vid you mentioned; for it to turn back on after power loss. I was referencing a reboot from like a watchdog or gpu hang; or one of windows other full tilt boogies.

Man - you are frustrating! You did that last step so fast and did not explain even half of what you did! You said "... and you have to copy your miner bat file into your startup so you bring up run and type shell:start..." then you copied the whole contents of this one folder into another folder without saying anything about it. I've been working on windows PC's for many years and I watched it over and over. Stopping, then replaying it over and over - SLOW DOWN MAN! SH*T! All I can see is a flash of claymore. Anyone new is never going to be able to follow you going that fast and not explaining half of what you are doing. I'm just sayin' . Still give you thumbs up and subscribed though (-:

I didn't see you cover windows defender. You have to put the mining software into exclusions of scans because it will delete the miners if you don't do this when it scans.

You didn’t mention how to disable a required password when restarting. And worse yet Windows 10 now makes you set up a PIN to log in which makes it harder to disable.

Not sure if anyone else on windows got slammed recently, but noticed even though I had updates shut down completely in services, windows found a way back in. They just can't stand not to add their latest money making scams to the OS. Screwed up everything. Finally found a way to disable it's ability to connect to the server via gpedit settings... There is also a setting that makes sure it will never install any drivers either. (which is how they hosed me).. That was not a good week! lol

Tdr failure! I upgraded 1 of my GPU. In total I'm using 7 gpu with all 10 series nvidia. And then i keep getting tdr failure on windows 10. Tried to reinstall driver with and without ddu. Uninstalled in safemode, and reinstall newest driver or even older driver, same thing. Tried tdrdelay regedit thingy. So far same thing keep happening within a minute or 2 of mining. Same thing happening with zcash, excavator, or even nicehash. Power supply is more than enough (1250w). Last resort is to reinstall windows 10. Help?
Michel Plante (6 months ago)
Thank you for this, it really helps when we get started. I'm using Claymore and just can't connect to the ethermine pool. The same rig connect without problem to dwarfpool. Any suggestions that you can think of or links to articles or people who have solved that? I tried to disable my router's firewall for a few minutes: same results. thank again for your great tips in the meantime

On this video, the last step with Run, Shell, Startup...

Turing updates is a huge mistake as updates patch vulnerabilities, why would you stop it?
Dennis Shows (5 months ago)
I mine on all of my families computers and don't have a dedicated mining machine so I will never turn of updates.
Verne's Misadventures (6 months ago)
Son of a Tech , Great tips! I opted to pause updates on my rigs. This will force you to update monthly because you will not be able to pause again until updates are installed. This method requires less research and attention because it is automated. The downside is that you need to pause updates again every month. I guess it depends upon how well-organized a person is whether your suggestion or this one would be preferable.

Jaan Hurditch (7 months ago)
Great vid! Cheers for the tips and wondering if you could comment on my build please - I went ahead and built a rig with 2x 1070Ti's and 2x RX580's as I wanted to be able to mine different coins according to their profitability... 3 days of ball-ache later and I'm very much regretting my decision to mix card types.. Installed latest drivers specifically to the cards through device manager but even with the RX580's completely unplugged the system is super unstable. Used DDU to uninstall all GPU drivers and just installed Nvidia through device manager - still super unstable and crashing windows 10 + 100% loading my CPU when trying to mine - getting 0 hashrate.... wtf.. So I used DDU to uninstall drivers and reinstalled nvidia drivers using the .exe program from nvidia. Everything working fine now for the 1070's - hashing about 29Mh/s ea on ETH - stable. Can you think of anything that would be causing the issues? I'm pretty sure its GPU drivers but I'm no expert.... You mentioned adjusting PCIE gen settings in the BIOS? MB is a ASUS STRIX Z270E. Should I just sell the 580's and get another couple of 1070Ti's? Will adding 1060's or 1080's be OK? I'm assuming they would be but want to make sure.. Cheers man and thanks again for the videos!

put some little delay in your start up bat. It might fire up before afterburner.. timeout /t 20 where 20 is the seconds before it starts the actual miner - u can change it.

Any idea why a 3rd GPU would randomly disappear from device manager on windows 10? It will boot and show all 3 but maybe an hour later just be gone. I have followed these steps and it still does it.
