  1. Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone can help me, I have a 500gb NVME setup as Hardware Passthrough with my windows gaming build on, I also have a 2tb HDD HDD that I Passthrough to store games on (some games don't like being on a network drive) The problem I have encountered is that when I activate the VM it boots to the EFI shell screen where I have to type in 'exit' then choose the boot device I want which is the NVME, this then boots fine but it's a pain. I think the reason for this is that I have passed through the second physical HDD within the VM setup but because the primary HDD is setup as 'None' as it's Passthrough and the HDD is setup as the secondary it auto dismisses the NVME and tries to boot from the HDD which just has file storage... Causing me to require choosing the NVME from the boot menu after the EFI shell. Any advice on how to Passthrough my secondary HDD without being mistaken for my boot drive. 🤔 I hope this made sense! 😬
  2. Hi, im getting this error with a Crucial CT500P1SSD8 P1 500 GB, I need to buy a larger nvme anyway but how do I know what controller each NVME uses before I buy? For example, do all Samsung use the same controller or do I have to go by specific model? thanks
  3. Hi, I have purchased an old Z420 workstation with an Xeon E5-1650 and a quadro K2000 gpu, how does the K2000 preform as a transcoder and how did you get it to work within Plex (i have plex pass, just need to figure out how to enable within unraid) thanks,
