Re: Acrn hardware selection Kaby Lake

Hi Feng Pan,
I would recommend you choose the NUC7i7DNHE, it’s the same board inside but the chassis allows for an easy fitting of the serial port cable via the on-board header. You can purchase such cable here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BV1W6N8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_ep_dp_wYm0BbABD5AK6 or from the Gorite site directly: https://www.gorite.com/serial-db9-header-cable-for-nuc-dawson-provo-and-tiger-canyon-intl-1280-db9
It’s also the same cable that you can use on the Tiger Lake platform which is what we are shifting our focus on, so that’s also the one I would recommend instead of the Kaby Lake one.
Hope this helps!

Subject: [acrn-users] Acrn hardware selection Kaby Lake
I am searching for a hardware to try the Acrn. One of my candidate will be Kaby Lake hardware, which is suggested by Acrn in hardware list https://projectacrn.github.io/latest/reference/hardware.html
However I am a little confused about the production code NUC7i7DNH and NUC7i7DNB. Which one should I search for? And I found an Amazon link through intel website for NUC7i7DNBE: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B07CRNPWTH/ref=asc_df_B07CRNPWTH1625907600000/?ascsubtag=s1626189489388ugz4a52348&tag=52348_iceleads00-21&creative=22398&creativeASIN=B07CRNPWTH&linkCode=df0
Is this hardware also the same as the recommendations from Acrn website? (so that I can directly use the Acrn config file)
Thank you and best regards,
