  1. Thanks that was quite insightful. I understood the theory of the parity drive but I wasnt aware of the technical aspect of reading and writing the data back. Out of curiousity: Are the speeds I am hitting with smb shares without cache what is considered normal?
  2. It was quite late when I tried to tackle this problem. I got the Gigabyte X570 Pro Wifi Motherboard and using the onboard ethernet. The system profiler shows me the following entry: eth0: 1000Mb/s, full duplex, mtu 1500 If transfering project folders to an smb share not using the cache (containing video files of 300MB - 1Gb AND smaller After Effects and Photoshop projects 10-40MB) I am seeing around 50-100MB/s). I used Crystal DiskMark to get a benchmark result: Saying speed of the Sata connection is refering to the speed I got when I tested th
  3. Hi! I am trying to figure one bit out that I might not quite understand. I am running a Win10 VM on my Unraid as a Daily Driver and Workmachine and so far I am quite happy with it. I got 3 HDD setup and one SSD as the cache. The VM is straight of a NVMe drive. When I am sitting in front of the VM and copy files onto the array that does not use the Cache I get speeds of around 75-100mb/s. Which is 10Gb ethernet speed, right? In my head the speed should be the speed the Sata Connection gives me as the data is only moving internally and not through a network.
  4. Hey! I have a rather similar setup: 3900x, Gigabyte X570 Pro Wifi, 64GB Ram 3200MHz, RTX 2070Super & 1070ti. I am passing through 10 Cores (leaving the first two across for Unraid) and both GPUs to a windows VM. My performance is rather good but at time feels a bit sluggish (very hard to put into numbers). After Effects/Lightroom and some other Adobe software especially feels quite sluggish. I ran AIDA in trial mode and got result like you in your first test. Tried to implement your hyperv flags but not sure if I have done it right. I just added them into t
  5. Yes, the container is linked and sows some of the files that are present on my Dropbox I am running in my VM. On a side note I am using the VM Dropbox with smart sync. Tested if it makes a difference if files are synced or just online but unfortunately that does not seem to be a problem. The log does not throw any errors or warnings at all.
  6. Hi there! So happy to get the Docker container working but I just realised the sync is not ptogressing for me either. Looks a bit like I have the same problem as @cinereus I got the dropbox folder structure on the array and some files are there. But realised that not all files are synced. I left it for around 2 night but the sync status has not changed yet. The console says its running and syncing but nothing is happening. If I create new folders they do get synced with some files in it. For example .txt files are getting synced. Most image files as well. One
  7. OMG! Read you comment and did it straight away. mbr2gpt would not work for me so I reinstalled Win10 and just tested it and it worked! Thanks so much for your help! I would have never thought og this. Coming from OSX/hackintosh I never really had to deal with this. Thanks a bunch for everyones input.
  8. Thats awesome. I just had the same issue after playing around with unraid that my barebone would not boot anymore. So have to reinstall everything and create an image backup before I get back into it. So you just unstubbed it and restarted? After that it worked without stubbing again? Anything you changed on the nvme barebone? How did you get around the "no boot device found" if using barebone nvme?
  9. Small update: To my uneducated eye it looks like the NVMe cant be booted but it stills shows up. I have just reinstalled Windows 10 on there as I had trouble even booting normally though bios (non VM). Unfortunatly I still had no luck.
  10. Thanks for the reply! I tried only the NVMe but same outcome. End up in shell. NVMe is visible in bios but if I select it it still wont boot. It looks like the NVMe is recognised but is not able to be booted. Is there any special trick I have to do?
  11. Thanks for the reply David. I tried your version of the boot order but I am running in a VM creation error. "internal error: unknown pci source type 'boot'" I tried this version before (the boot flag is in a different line) but it wouldn't solve the problem either. VM can be created. It will start directly in the shell and wont try booting in IP4 but still cant get the NVMe to boot. <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x01' slot='0x00' func
  12. Asa quick update: I changed the Unraid USB to UEFI to test if this was the proble but unfortunatly that did nit help either.
  13. Hi! I just setup my new rig (specs below). I installed a bare metal Win10 install on my NVMe m.2, installed some apps and ran some benchmarks for a comparison later. I followed SI1 walkthrough here: I setup my bios to get IOMMU groups and it looks they are all nicely seperated from eath other. Used VFIO-PCI Config from community applications to be able to pass through my NVMe in the VM. I tried different combinations with gpu passthrough and just VNC, combination of CPU cores and RAM allocation
  14. Hi guys! I am about to get a new PC (parts down below already purchased and optimized for my design 3D workflow) and finally switching from macos to Win10. After following Linus Tech Tips and Morgonaut on Youtube I decided to give Unraid a try for a NAS/Win10 VM setup. Usage: My main usage is some dockers (Plex/maybe Piehole), storage AND a Windows 10 VM to work as a motion designer/3D artist with applications like the Adobe Suite (After Effects, Photoshop) and 3D applications like Cinema4D and Blender etc. My workflow is quite CPU and GPU heavy.
