Data rsync on a do server to HP g2 mini g4 workststion via vpn -- 2

Job Description:


I've got a digital ocean server as my learning center, tensorflow, django and dbs. Now I don't need it but I want an alternative to replace it either by migrating to cheaper vendor or creating my own server at home or at school.

I had a script to do that (move ends, zip/unzip data), which was done my by another freelancer a year ago.

so here are my tasks;

Migrate all data and create a server with optimized budgets for me. (recommend which vendor and how much)

option 1: use a separate storage for data (I've another do server with Gitlab, which can be configured to do that)

option 2: Set up a brand-new hp server machine (z2 mini g4 on windows 10)I can leave at home or at school running 24/7/365 where I can access ( vpn and some bypassing skill required to do so as both home and school have APs you need to work through when creating an open ssh etc.)

my budget: usd 30

my workstation: [login to view URL] on Windows10

(need a ubuntu dual boot)

(Here’s recommendation from HP forum)

I purchased a Z2 mini G4 and also struggled to install Ubuntu 18.x and/or Linux Mint 19.x. Despite being an ex-HP employee and experienced in Linux, it took me more than a half day to figure it out. Many solutions listed like re-formatting the disk in MBR (versus GPT), moving to BIOS legacy mode etc. didn't work and were anyhow not optimal. This finally worked for me:

- First, and highly recommended: take an image backup of your EFI partition e.g. using Macrium Reflect Free using the pre-installed Windows 10

- Make sure your BIOS is at the latest version (I lost time by not doing this right away, previous versions had defects making it even more difficult, ...)

- Make a bootable USB disk or hard drive from your downloaded copy of the Linux Mint or Ubuntu ISO file. UNetBootin (diskimage mode) or Rufus work great. You can do this from the pre-installed WIndows 10. Make sure it's UEFI enabled (GPT formatted USB). Good reading here.

- Reboot the Z2, hold down F10 to go into BIOS config (Secure Boot settings)

Turn off Secure boot but also keep Legacy mode off (Legacy support disable and Secure Boot disabled)

Keep Microsoft UEFI Ca Key enabled. Ubuntu will use it.

Do not reset Secure Boot keys to default (you won't be able to boot your Windows image!). If you accidentally enabled this, recover your EFI partition from the image backup

Save config and reboot but hold the F9 key (boot order)

- Boot from the Linux installer on USB stick or disk.

- Don't use the GUI installer, instead open a terminal window (Linux shell)

- Type following commands:

ubiquity -b (this runs the installer without installing grub)

sudo bash (after the installer finishes, run following commands are root)

mkdir -p /mnt/boot/efi

mount /dev/nvme0np3 /mnt (in my case the TurboZ drive contains the OS: nvme0p1 is EFI partition, nvme0p2 is Windows 10, nvme0p3 is Linux root partition; if you are installing to the SSD, it’s most likely /dev/sda[0123])

mount /dev/nvme0np3 /mnt/boot/efi

for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do mount -B $i /mnt$i; done

chroot /mnt

apt-get update

apt-get install ubuntu-system-adjustments (for Linux Mint)

apt install --reinstall grub-efi-amd64-signed grub-efi-amd64

os-prober (for Linux Mint)



Now the system will boot into the Grub boot manager and one can select Windows or Linux.

Alternatively, it's possible to install Grub2Win to either modify the Windows Boot Manager or have the Win2Grub boot manager instead.
