    Found another problem, while the Vortexbox started, the disk light stayed on for about 20 minutes and the response was very slow.

    Hooked up the monitor, again, booted and saw a message about disk checking.

    So, a quick search for "Fedora - how to check a disk smart"pulled up a link -
    https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-check...using-smartctl .

    I installed the tools -
    dnf install smartmontools

    and ran a check on my 3 drives, -
    smartctl -a /dev/sda then sdb and sdc

    /dev/sdb showed it was on the way out,
    Reallocated_Sector_Ct was 80 something thousand and Current_Pending_Sector was 39000.

    So I replaced the disk and used my instructions https://www.vortexbox.org/forum/supp...sd-data-on-hdd to rebuild.

    Vortexbox wouldn't start - hooked a monitor up and saw [Firmware Bug]: TSC_DEADLINE disabled due to Errata; please update microcode to version: 0x22 (or later)

    After a bit of searching I found a reference to Intel microcode being out of date.

    First I updated the motherboard bios, but that didn't help. Then I found reference to "sudo dnf install microcode_ctl", so after a few attempts I got to the prompt and was able to
    log in as root and enter the command dnf install microcode_ctl - and after a reboot it was fixed.
Working...
