Notice: This wiki is for the old version CCBoot. Please click HERE to access the new version wiki

Please use Windows 2008/2012 R2 Enterprise Edition 64 bit if you plan to use Windows Server OS as CCBoot server system platform.

Please use 64 bit version of OS, if you plan to use other OS than Windows Server OS as CCBoot server system platform. (Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 are recommended, Windows XP and Window Server 2003’s support is ended by Microsoft so it is not recommended)

1)    All hard disks should be formatted as NTFS. When format drives, please set "Allocation unit size" as"Default" for server OS system drive, and set "Allocation unit size"as "32K" for other drives.

2)    Allocate hard disks for image, game (raid 0) and write back (2-3 hard disks). If you have an SSD disk, please format it to only one partition for cache. How to allocation hard disks? Please refer to Server Hardware Requirements.

3)    Make sure that there is no other DHCP services on the LAN. Especially, please disable the DHCP service in the router.

4)    If you are using Windows 7 and above OS, please make sure you have enabled the "Enable write caching on the device"for every disk

How to do "Enable write caching on the device" on disk?

1) Click Start, right-click Computer and select Manage.

2) In the left panel, click Device Manager.

3) Expand Disk Drives and right-click on one of the disks.

4) Click the Policies tab and check "Enable Write Caching on the device" to enable. (it’s a default setting of Windows 7)

5) To further improve the disk performance (needless to say, higher the risk now), check the box "Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device".

6) Press "OK" to save (Figure 1-1).
