  1. 1) Are there any BIOS updates for your motherboard? If so, please apply the latest. I have the latest installed 2) Please post your full system specs (motherboard, processor, and all) so I can review the components. unRAID Version: unRAID Server Plus, Version 6.0-beta15 Motherboard: ASUSTeK COMPUTER INC. - SABERTOOTH X79 Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-3930K CPU @ 3.20GHz Cache: L1-Cache = 32 kB (max. capacity 32 kB) L2-Cache = 256 kB (max. capacity 256 kB) L3-Cache = 12288 kB (max. capacity 12288 kB) Memory: 32768 MB (max. installable capacity 96 GB) ChannelA = 8192 MB, 1066 MHz ChannelB = 8192 MB, 1066 MHz ChannelC = 8192 MB, 1066 MHz ChannelD = 8192 MB, 1066 MHz Network: bond0: fault-tolerance (active-backup) eth0: 1000Mb/s - Full Duplex Uptime: 0 days, 0 hours, 7 minutes, 2 seconds 3) Do you have another GPU or another motherboard you can test with to see if that makes a difference? I had passthrough working previously with an old AMD card. I plugged it in along the GTX but unRAID didn't detect it after the reboot. But the GTX is still displaying. Ill swap it around new reboot. 4) Are you 100% positive that you turned on ALL of your virtualization settings in the BIOS? Sometimes there is another setting hidden somewhere else. Yes, I am. I didn't have them enabled the first time . They are now 5) Is there a video BIOS update for your video card available? If so, you may need to install Windows temporarily somewhere to hook up the card and apply the update, but that could also have an impact. I have the latest BIOS 6) Another option would be to try loading the ROM file for the card manually in the XML. This is how I was able to get GPU pass through to work with an ASUS brand R9 290 that I had which hadn't worked before. In fact, I'd probably try this first because it's fairly easy to do. I tried this but it never created the vm <qemu:arg value='vfio-pci,host=01:00.0,bus=root.1,addr=00.0,multifunction=on,x-vga=on,romfile=/mnt/user/images/win8/Asus.GTX980.4096.140925.rom'/> EDIT: The above did create a VM but it still did not passthrough successfully. Just the screen flicker for a second and get 'no source' When the VM is successfully being passed through should you still see the VNC symbol in the 'Action' ares on the VM page?
  2. Theres an 8 pin and a 6 pin connection. There is a little led over each of them and they are lit. So, I dont think its psu or connection issue
  3. Thanks Jon. Yes, I have enough power alright I have an Antec High Current Gamer 900W I have 5 drives and a few fans, so it should be enough. I checked out everything on pcpartpicker.com and it all looked fine. I'll double check all connections again. Could it be something to do with drivers on the card by any chance? I'll be gutted if this card dosent work so I'm willing to try anything now.
  4. Asus STRIX-GTX 980 http://www.asus.com/ie/Graphics_Cards/STRIXGTX980DC2OC4GD5/
  5. vt-d is now definitely enabled. My GTX980 is showing up in the device list. When I make a VM and start it the unRaid screen disappears and for a second my TV flashes as if its going to show a picture, but it just goes to 'no signal' When the screen goes 'black' and I forcefully shutdown the VM the screen stays the same. Attached are the 4 templates I have tried and each time I tried them I rebooted my server first: _________________________________________ __________________________________________ __________________________________________ But all gave the same result........black screen. Any suggestions/ideas?
  6. Thats what I was thinking as well Jon, the only thing stopping me checking is: Array Started•Parity-Sync: 13,6 % I double checked I enable it but my mobo can be flakey so maybe some OC tweaks messed it up. VT-d was working on an old AMD card so I know my cpu is capable and I assume (hope) my gpu is.
  7.

  8. Just a quick question. When I am trying to make a VM in the VM Manager I only have the option for VNC I have a GTX980 installed in my PC and VT-d enabled I have pcie_acs_override=downstream in my sys.cfg Does it have to be added after using XML? ie <qemu:commandline> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='ioh3420,bus=pcie.0,addr=1c.0,multifunction=on,port=1,chassis=1,id=root.1'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='vfio-pci,host=01:00.0,bus=root.1,addr=00.0,multifunction=on,x-vga=on'/> <qemu:arg value='-device'/> <qemu:arg value='vfio-pci,host=01:00.1,bus=pcie.0'/>/> </qemu:commandline>
  9. Wow, 2x 8TB Ya, but by the time they preclear the 10TB drives will be out
  10. Cheers Sparklyballs. For some reason I always read your name as Sparkyballs. The 'L' makes it alot funnier Hopefully I can find a solution. It seems a massive waste of time copying files to a folder on the same drive instead of merging or moving them. I'd nearly fire up a Windows VM to get some merging going on EDIT: Krusader Sync was the solution. I should have just used it first. I'm now merging my Media directory from disk4 to my Media directory in disk1 Copy and merge in one.
  11. Mine is here anyway. I didn't do anything to get it there.....Just appeared
  12. Ive been messing about with Krusader and was wondering is there a "merge" function. I rsync'ed Disk1 and Disk 2 to Disk3 and want to merge the folders. In Krusader I can see "Synchronise" , which does pretty much merge but it copyies the files/folders instead of moving.
  13. Great work again lboregard I'll test it later Thanks
  14. I agree with you there ysss. Great work guys. I never heard of krusader until I saw this. I look forward to trying it and to seeing what you all whip up next
