comment BIOS has detected unsuccessful POST attempt(s)
Isn't it obvious? The power going out and coming back the first time causes a boot, and the power going out the second time before the POST can finish causes the error stating that POST failed ( since the power failed again before it could complete ).

comment New mother board…operating system not found
This is simply the bios saying it can't find a hard disk to boot from.

No; pulling power while in the OS would not do this. The power going out, coming back, then going back out again before POST completes, then coming back would.

Create the raid array, boot the windows install disc in uefi mode, and install should work just fine.

@AdamStrohl, actually, no... Windows only supports GPT with UEFI.

comment Unable to navigate to localhost (or 127.0.0.1)
Question makes no sense: if you are running your web server on port 8080, then you need to specify that in the url for firefox to know it should connect there instead of port 80.

comment Cannot delete files on ExFat flash drive without running chkdsk
Then your school admins are a bunch of idiots and you should tell them to fix it. You can not safely use removable media without safely ejecting it.

comment cloning drives to correct RAID 10 failure
It should have an option to add a drive to the array and/or rebuild it... that's kind of the whole point of raid.

comment cloning drives to correct RAID 10 failure
What's wrong with using the bios raid utility to add the two drives to the array and rebuild?

comment All Free Ram going into cached even with Prefetch AND Superfetch disabled completely
All free memory is available for use by the cache, as otherwise it is totally wasted. As soon as a program needs some memory it just steals it from the cache. Thus, your crashes are not related to the cache, and underclocking the gpu would not alter its memory requirements.

Is your netmask something other than 255.255.255.0? Check with ifconfig.
