General troubleshooting in hiveos

After one year of HiveOS i want to contribute with the most important things i learned while getting issues and troubleshooting.

All crashes of hiveos has been related to drivers or overclocking.

A skilled user probably want to locate the issue and solve that. For me its easier to start over. Fresh install of hiveos with latest driver and NO overclocking. If i believe any GPU is the issue i start with 1 GPU. When stable, add 1 more GPU until everything is working or broken gpu/riser is found.

Easiest way to do fresh install is with the command hive-replace + URL from http://download.hiveos.farm. Like:
hive-replace -y http://download.hiveos.farm/hiveos-0.6-84@191022.zip

Disable GUI on boot + enable Maintenance mode

Good luck and happy mining!

I concur. The rare time I have an issue, OC is most frequently the cause.
For example: I have a mixed RX580 / RX570 rig where if one card drops, it reorders the GPUs and OC settings are now out of order and misapplied.

Better command to chose image from list, hive-replace --list
