There are 2 methods to delete partitions:

  1. Via diskmgmt.msc application
    • Press the Win+R keys on your keyboard, type diskmgmt.msc and press Enter.
    • In the lower part of the disk management window, locate your USB flash drive, right-click on one of the sections and select the “Delete volume” menu item. Repeat this for the remaining volumes (you can’t delete only the last volume and then expand the previous one).
    • When there is only one unallocated space left on the drive, right-click on it and select the "Create a simple volume" menu item. Next, follow the simple instructions and upon completion of the process you will get one partition that takes up all the free space on your USB drive.
  2. Removing partitions on a USB drive using the diskpart console program
    • Press the Win+R keys on your keyboard, type diskpart and press Enter. After that, in order, enter the following commands, pressing Enter after each of them:
      • list disk
      • In the list of disks, find your flash drive, we need its number. Do not confuse with other drives!
      • select disk N (where N is the flash drive number)
      • clean (the command will delete all partitions on a flash drive)
      • create partition primary
      • select partition 1
      • format fs = fat32 quick
      • assign
      • exit

On this, all actions to delete partitions on the USB flash drive are completed, one partition is created and the drive is assigned with a letter - you can use the full available memory on USB.

The installation process of our operating system is very simple and does not take much time.

  • Sign up for MinerOS
  • Go to the page "Download Image" in your account
  • Click the "Download" button and wait until the archive with the OS image is downloaded. Its size is ~950 Mb
  • Unzip the archive and burn the image to any 8GB+ media drive using the HddRawCopy software
  • Insert the media drive with burned OS into the mining rig and turn it on
  • Within a couple of minutes, a new rig will appear on your dashboard in your account
  • Rename the rig, create a mining task and apply it to the selected rig. Details are here

 

A more detailed description of OS installation can be found in this article.

We charge a small service fee to cover operating and development costs so that we can continually increase the profitability and functionality of the software.

  • 3 rigs with any number of video cards - for free
  • 4 or more rigs - payment is charged for each rig and is $1 per month for each rig (the lowest price in the mining industry)

The following system of discounts depends on the number of rigs:

  • 50+ devices - 10% off
  • 100+ devices - 20% off
  • 250+ devices - 30% off
  • 500+ devices - 40% off
  • 1000+ devices - 50% off

Thus, the minimum price per rig is $0.5 per month per device.

Additionally, periodical discounts are held! Follow the news page and telegram channel!

There are currently several options for accessing the rig:

  1. Via putty under Windows (if you are on the same network as rig)
    Login: mine
    Password: mine
  2. Via Unix terminal (if you are on the same network as rig)
    Team: ssh [email protected]
    Password: mine
  3. Via the built-in MinerOS web console (if in different networks with rig)
  4. Via MinerOS Remote Terminal (for simple commands)
  5. Through a third-party teleconsole service (if in different networks with a rig)
    Installation: curl https://www.teleconsole.com/get.sh | sh
    Get Console ID: teleconsole
    Usage: https://teleconsole.com/s/CONSOLE_ID

AMD drivers for video cards give out power consumption only of the chip, and not the entire video card. Therefore, consumption indicators will be underestimated. If you want your rig consumption to be displayed more accurately, you can adjust this using the consumption multiplier. This is a purely visual thing, i.e. you bring consumption closer to its real value and you can see a more accurate forecast of earnings on the dashboard. By default, this coefficient = 1.0. If you need to increase the power consumption icdicator by 20%, set 1.2 to the apropirate field.

PIN is a security token. In order for the rig to reach the server, the PIN in the configuration file must match the PIN in the user profile in your account. By default, the PIN in both places is set to "12345".

How to connect rig with admin panel?

As you know, in order to associate mining rigs with the MinerOS control panel, an e-mail address in the configuration file is enough. It is very comfortable. You can download a personalized image from your personal account (which already contains your authorization e-mail) and burn it immediately to all rigs without changing anything in the settings. The name of the rig and other fields can be changed later from the control panel.

So why do you need a PIN?

If an attacker recognizes your authorization e-mail, he can add his rigs to your control panel by entering an e-mail in the config. The problem is not dangerous, and extremely rare, but we decided to protect ourselves from this situation by adding a PIN check. An attacker must also additionally know your PIN in order to do his dirty business.

How to change PIN?

  • When you download a personalized image from the "Download Image" page in your account there is a PIN field. The default PIN is 12345, you can enter any other and it will be registered on the fly in the downloaded image.
  • If you download the general image, then after burning the image, go to MINEROS_DISK://auth.txt on Windows, find the pin field there and change it as you need.
  • If you download the general image, then after burning the image mount the drive in Linux OS using the mount command and edit the auth.txt file there.
  • If the rig already works and you need to change the PIN, just go to the cd /config directory and edit the auth.txt file.

It is necessary to turn off mining mode in the BIOS of the motherboard. Further, everything is as in the instructions for the OS: 4G encoding, PCI Gen2, legacy boot mode.

Open
  1. If everything works well, then do not update the driver
  2. Stop mining on the rig where driver updates are planned
  3. Call the command /home/utils/nv_update in the rig terminal and the script will download, install the latest drivers, and reboot the rig. If you need to install any specific drivers from the collection, simply add their name as a parameter, for example: /home/utils/nv_update NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-440.31.run
  4. Driver names can be found in the MinerOS driver collection.
  5. Patiently wait for the drivers to be installed. When everything is completed, the rig will reboot

P.S. Do not use "Remote Terminal" in your account to update drivers. If you are on the same network as the rig, then use SSH access to the rig (login: mine, password: mine). If you are not on the same network with the rig, then use "Shell start" from your personal account to create an SSH tunnel.
