Prepare the Rig for msOS

  • Upgrade bios to latest (IMPORTANT!)
  • Disable Onboard graphics
  • Enable UEFI/Legacy USB on your BIOS
  • DO NOT USE INTEGRATED GRAPHICS FOR MONITOR - Use GPU in first x16 slot
  • Unplug every other Hard Disk
  • Create a bootable USB 3.0 Thumb drive. [Details & Setup below] (USB 3.0 is important!)
  • Plug in the flashed thumb drive to the USB 3.0 Port (Blue on motherboard)

  • Writing msOS to an 8GB/8GB+ USB 3.0 | Windows


  • Plug in a min 7.351GB capacity (8 GB) USB 3.0 thumb drive.
  • Download and install Etcher
  • Extract the downloaded archive with 7Zip.
  • Open Etcher
  • Select msos-xx.img
  • Select Your USB
  • Click >> Flash
  • Last step: Edit configuration file

  • Writing msOS to an 8GB/8GB+ USB 3.0 | Linux Terminal

    *Pro tip: You can use
    Etcher instead of Terminal.

  • Plug in a min 7.351GB capacity (8 GB) USB 3.0 thumb drive.
  • Open Terminal and write sudo -i (Enter your password for root access)
  • Terminal: sudo apt-get install p7zip-full
  • Extract the downloaded archive with: 7z x -so msos-xx.7z
  • Search your pendrive with: fdisk -l (Search: Disk /dev/sdX 7,XGB)
  • Flash the prepared file: sudo dd if=/path/to/msos-xx.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1m (replace X with your enumeration)
  • Last step: Edit configuration file

  • Writing msOS to an 8GB/8GB+ USB 3.0 | macOS Terminal

    *Pro tip: You can use
    Etcher instead of Terminal.

  • Extract the downloaded archive with: The Unarchiver
  • Open Terminal
  • Plug in a min 7.351GB capacity (8 GB) USB 3.0 thumb drive.
  • Search your pendrive with: diskutil list
  • Flash the prepared file: sudo dd if=/path/to/msos-xx.img of=/dev/diskX bs=1m (replace X with your enumeration)
  • Last step: Edit configuration file

  • *Advice: Use
    Mounty to read-write NTFS partitions.

    Edit config file


    After flashing the msos-xx.img file to the drive
    you will need to edit the config.js file and add your token and worker ID.

    In some cases the MSOS partition will not appear in Windows systems.
    Try to plug in a Linux/macOS to edit config, if you have only Windows, don't panic just plug the thumb drive.
    On the first start it will be asked.


    config.js example
    global.accesskey = "wTeR123459"
    global.worker = "Rig1080Ti"

    global.accesskey is your Minerstat login token. (example: wTeR123459)
    global.worker is your Minerstat worker name you created on the dashboard for this rig. (Rig1080Ti)

    How to connect to the rig


    1] SSH (Terminal)


    Use ssh [email protected] from Linux or Mac
    Windows users can download Putty (Download & Install) >> Select SSH >> Fill in your IP >> Connect

    User: minerstat
    Password: msos


    2] ShellInABox (Browser)


    Open https://192.168.0.XXX:4200 in a browser to access Shell (SSH) from your browser.

    User: minerstat
    Password: msos

    Can i use a monitor with it?

    Yes!
    However, if you are using mixed rig (both AMD and NVIDIA cards), install an NVIDIA GPU in the first 16x slot as the main GPU.
    (Otherwise the Xserver will crash and there will be no Overclock for NVIDIA GPUs.)


    Shell commands

    • miner show miner screen.
    • mstart (re)start mining progress.
    • mstop close mining progress.
    • mrecovery restore everything to default. (all data and miner config stay in safe)
    • mupdate update miners, clients. (Auto update only starts on boot)
    • mreconf simulate first boot: configure DHCP, creating fake dummy for NVIDIA (ideal, if overclocking not work)
    • mhelp List all available commands.
    • Ctrl+A, D detach from screen. Stay working in the background.
    • Ctrl+C stop & exit from any program.
