After a long unsatisfying day of trying to revive my network after a bad overnight storm
(it could be worse; the neighbor's new shed rolled nearly to their sun porch, uphill, and is looking very much the worse for its FOURTH excursion off its foundation), was inspired by Ernst's update and tempted fate further with Hydra + Windows. Probably should have gone with evaluating on "Windows Pro for Workstation" instead of "Windows Pro" for more cores & cache supported. Time stamp on attachment is PST from before correcting to my time zone. Elapsed time for OS install including rounding up media and an external USB DVD drive ~2 hours including nudging it a bit now and then while mostly doing other things.
Drive is partitioned so there is room left for a Linux install.
That's the good news.

Now the other kind.
Windows subsets the core count rather severely. If Windows for Workstation allows twice what Windows Pro does, that's still 56 out of 68. I assume mprime in WSL2 would not be able to bring any more cores to bear. In any event, it is impressive to see 112 logical processors represented in Resource Monitor at this point, especially given the low used hardware price.

Prime95 v30.3b6 generates this error in the application log, without ever making an appearance on the screen.
