Im actually using windows 8.1, so will the above help? Also have changed large pages to everyone a while back, but I still get the warning.

Well, you just ran into the one thing that is the real reason I ditched 8.1, lack of true admin control. You very well may have changed the setting, but on many things administrative related, 8.1 will actually block the change of settings as you ordered, even if you manage to uncover the "real" administrator account (which isn't even the real one, btw, M$ is the only one that can access the true root admin from what I can tell).


Personally, that's a serious affront to me, that I am not allowed to have the full depth of admin control of my own machine, and completely unacceptable in my eyes.


To be more direct in answering your question: Very likely no, those instructions are for Win 7/Vista Home/HomePremium x64. With an addendum in Vista, you only need run your yam instance with admin privileges after following those steps I laid out.


I'm pretty sure that those tricks won't work in 8 or 8.1 though. Sorry.

Thread Starter 
I enabled it in 8 without problems.
you need to run the miner as admin (go to compatibility settings to check that) and reboot after setting lock pages in memory to Everyone. run the miner as soon as windows boots.

Isn't there a way to force full privileges for Administrators in the group policy or security settings? I know it was possible in 8, idk about 8.1; it does break pretty much everything however, making the system almost completely unusable for everyday usage

Ok, sorted it out by changing the properties of yam.exe to run as admin

Certainly there is, and it's the requirement of fully disabling of UAC to do so, that breaks everything. The entire point is; why bother if it breaks nearly everything else? tongue.gif

Without plagiarizing the entire site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa366720%28v=vs.85%29.aspx


Basically, it allows an application that needs to (yam is the only miner that does this atm), to allot substantial portions of the available system memory to paging for the task, and increases the performance of an application specifically designed to make use of it by quite a bit. Hugepages is the Unix based term for it, Large-pages is the Windows terminology for the same thing.


It's not dependent on cpu type or brand, but it seems to have a greater effect on Intel based systems. I've got it working fine on my 1090T, an x2 270 Regor, and my 3570k at the moment. Although, the AMD chips I have at my disposal, don't quite seem to live up to the same increase in performance with hugepages active, as my Intel chip does. The latter of which, gains nearly 1/3 more performance with hugepages enabled.

anyone know of a good miner for a virtual machine?
I've got a pretty nice ESX host i can run a few machines off of.
post #610 of 1135
Finally got YAM... What the hell do I do now?


EDIT: Got it. biggrin.gif
