XenServer - Your First Virtual Machine Installation

Creating a Windows 10 VM on XenServer / XCP-ng Walkthrough

This video goes through creating a virtual machine on XenServer / XCP-ng in a lab environment. If you want to experiment with XenServer, I highly recommend you download XCP-ng from their website @ https://xcp-ng.org/. XCP-ng is a community-powered version of XenServer with ALL FEATURES ENABLED. XenServer from Citrix has recently started locking features behind a paywall and started going away from its open source roots.

Let me know if you have any questions or comments below!

I checked your blog, you know a lot about computers O_O.

I wanted to be a computer technician, but many years ago I understood that I don't want to reinstall windows to n00bs and computer technician jobs are dead.

There were 2 computer shops in my neighboorhood here in Lithuania both went bankrupt. and I worked 3 days in a computer shop, 2pc's a day. there was no job and the employer was a scammer.

So I quit, now I learn coding – do you know anything about coding? html/css/javascript.

Yes, I can code in a variety of languages. I actually created my website https://www.christitus.com because I only had a very limited understanding of html code/css back in 2009. Having my own website allowed me to tinker and try everything in the book about modifying as I see fit. I still use it for a testing ground and constantly try risky things I'd never try in a business environment. I started the website on a local computer here running a simple LAMP stack on ubuntu, then transitioned it to AWS micro instance, then Windows 10, and now it is sitting on a Gcloud micro instance which I pay about $.05 cents a month for and seems to handle about 1k visitors a month. If it gets much more popular I'll probably have to transition to a standard pay instance for $20 a month but overall a great place to start.

If you are interested in how I got my start back in 2002 in the IT field I can make a post explaining how I moved up and how you break into the business realm of IT. Residential PC repair was a good place to start but like you said it is a dead field. Nowadays, you need to develop these skills in your house or with friends, then get your foot in the door at a business working tech support for them.

I learn on these websites one is for math and the other is for coding.
I like them because they're free and freecodecamp gives full stack certificate if I develop some projects.

Can you give me link to that cheap hosting, because I have to put my projects online aswell, full hosting here costs somewhere 60-80€ with domain name, I don't want to pay that much for a portfolio website nobody's going to visit.

https://cloud.google.com/ put ubuntu on it, with LAMP and then install WordPress. You will also need to optimize WordPress and some of php settings to adjust for the lack of resources with the micro instance. I'll add it to my to be produced content list to get that pushed out as it is a great way for people to learn and traffic isn't high with almost no cost.

I looked already it's not available in my country since I'm from Lithuania.

I don't want wordpress I think I'll make my own cms – someday....

But I don't understand how coders know what to code.... Firms like Google and Facebook and other have a lot of code made, but how do they know what to code? How do they make those algorithms..

On the user side it's very easy "looking" I see the div's and the borders and aligns, but the backend where shit's gets done is like ridiculously hard.

I think those guys are geniuses. O_O

Rule 1 from coding: Don't reinvent the wheel. Most times to do those complex things it's already there.

If you don't want to do a wordpress or content management system then start with good libraries and build it from scratch. Any web designer will tell you to start with Bootstrap (https://getbootstrap.com/)

I know this rule, maybe I'll use wordpress, but I'll design my own theme. I'm kind of into simulation hypothesis.

Every time I do critical thinking I end up realizing there must be some one. Out there. But I don't want to do bows and crap.

Brought up simulation hypothesis, because it's computer related.

As a philosopher form birth [it's in my genes] can't do nothing about it, I've been reinventing the wheel all my life. I'm kind of used to it.

You know coding is a bit different, if people wouldn't look another time that earth is flat, nobody would travel to the moon and back.... or to mars or Jupiter.
