Heckin gross. Windows 10, any version newer than 19H1 August 30th update, will not boot on my Ryzen machine, unless I disable the "Above 4G decoding" option. Funny enough, my MSI motherboard calls this option "Crypto mining" option too, and disables it by default anyway.

Conversely, my AMD Hackintosh installation won't boot past the FileVault password prompt if I have that option disabled. So I guess it's BIOS option swapping nightmare mode if I want to switch back and forth.

@rey did something happen to federated media? I'm seeing 404 errors and missing images for remote posters


2019-09 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1903 for x64-based Systems (KB4515384)


Show thread

Meh, disregard that, I'm dumb. I needed to run the boot loader from the EFI system, which allowed it to reboot to the recovery prompt, which in turn let me run Startup Recovery, which actually worked for the first time since I've ever tried using it.

What the everloving fuck, Microsoft?

KB4515384, or Windows 10 1903 cumulative update for September 10, 2019, appears to require a system with CSM support. Good fucking thing MSI doesn’t let me turn that off from the Windows OS menu to enable UEFI-only mode, right? Right!?

Because that would be stupid, right? To render a system to stick at the loading spinner indefinitely due to forcing a UEFI only system. Stupid, right?

Security is not a spectrum, where you can move from less secure to more secure. You’re either secure or you’re not. You need to achieve critical mass rapidly for new security features, and you cannot do that when people can go β€œwell we’ll be able to interoperate with them without having to do anything…”

…Because they’ll do nothing, and do nothing, and do nothing, and then there goes any hope you had of making it stick.

Oh hey, @Nowak I seem to remember this was something that concerned you at one point? Maybe I am misremembering. Content warning blurring, or disabling the blur effect:

@tootapp How do I remove a server from my server list without deleting and reinstalling the app?

#Introductions Hello, I am kode54 or kuroshi, and I just moved to this instance, to hopefully find a cleaner federated timeline than I had before. I'm a computer programmer, and somewhat rarely, a bit of a gaming addict. My boyfriend also lives on this instance.

Bugs experienced in the RX 480 were typically stream errors or delays causing the decoder to lock up for seconds or minutes at a time. Not fun. Never experienced this under Linux, probably because nothing fricking uses hardware codecs there.

I just got my refurbished RX 480 back, and it's still buggy as hell in random stuff in Windows! Guess I'm still in the GTX 960 4GB club for the foreseeable future. I also ran some video codec versus GPU engine usage checks with DXVA Checker, and it uses lower percentages per task for the same workload as the RX 480, and I mean noticeably lower, like 5-10% less of the GPU for the same tasks.

Oh, and I just had to reboot to solve a case of microstuttering that was affecting both my mouse cursor (video/input) and my audio output, and it wasn't registering as either DPC or ISR latency in LatencyMon.
