We are setting up a new 2-node AMD EPYC Rome S2D (Storage Spaces Direct) cluster and hit a bit of a snag with the new version of RUFUS that lists the following options when formatting the drive:
- Windows 11 with TPM/SecureBoot
- Windows 11 without TPM/SecureBoot
Our cluster nodes refused to boot from the USB Flash Drive (why we leave a USB flash drive plugged in to the server) no matter which setting we chose.
So, we downloaded an earlier version: RUFUS 3.15P.
Sure enough, the flash drive booted without issue and we had a Windows Server 2022 OS freshly installed:
Windows Server 2022 SConfig
Note the first line: Set-SConfig -AutoLaunch $False
Disabling the SConfig Menu
Yup. That’s first on the list for our node setup PoSh! 😉
