[Pw_forum] Finding the most stable structure

Dear all,

I have a supercell containing 64 Si atoms with amorphous structure and I
want to add one Hydrogen atom to one of Si atoms with the condition that
the most stable possible structure comes out. I randomly add the Hydrogen
to one of Si atoms and then I run "relax" calculations, but I get different
final energy when I repeat my random process for adding the Hydrogen.
Should I try "md" calculations to get the same structure with the most
stability out of my different initial structures? If yes under which
conditions (options)?

Any suggestion would be highly appreciated.
