  1. I just tried moving the VM off the first cpu core and that made no difference, I also isolated the cpu that the vms use and again no noticeable change 😞
  2. Hi all, thought I would query the hive mind win this one. At startup of my VMs one of them sits at the bios logo for about 5 mins before loading up windows 10, has anyone seen this before? what I have noticed is that one of its cpus assigned to it sits at 100% the whole time and after it’s loaded up it all goes to normal.
  3. Hi all, is anyone successfully using an Asus ROG Maximus X Hero Motherboard with multiple VM’s? I am struggling to assign resources or split the USB groups Thanks James
  4. I just downgraded, Enabled ACS overrride and restarted and now all my devices are split apart again. It seems a bit odd that the new version does not work the same way...
  5. I am in the process of downgrading as the new version decided to put both my graphics cards in the same IOMMU group. There was no way to split them, i have been trying for 2-3 hours now :-(
  6. I have had issues with windows 10 too, my usb3 wont work in windows 10 neither will my onboard sound. Asus p9 X79 motherboard.
  7. scratch previous comment, it does work with my usb 3 controller! slightly excited now!! Just need to work out why the device cant start now... probably a driver update/issue will post when I have mucked about with the VM some more... I love you guys thanks for the help :-)
  8. ahh cool that's what I tried and annoyingly no usb devices found on the VM when I boot it up. I think I am destined to fail at this :-( edit! I can confirm that this works on my usb2 controller but not on the USB 3 one! If I run unRAID from the USB 3 controller the pen drive gets so hot that it crashes/corrupts the system!! Any ideas/ ways round this? I have 3 sets of USB ports, one set on the front of my case (usb2) , one set on the back that's USB3, and another set of USB2 on the back. I really want the unRaid on the front so that I don't have dangling cables everywhere
  9. for trying that passthrough method, what should i do with my gfx card passthrough?
  10. ok done that, fresh build. The only thing now in my xml is + using vnc <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=09:00.0,bus=root.1,addr=00.1'/> </qemu:commandline> Still getting the same, no usb devices work :-(
  11. nothing extra appears in device manager needing drivers. I am stumped really, am I missing something with the XML passthrough? what is the difference between bus=pcie.0 and bus=root.1 ?? why would the usb be root and not a pcie number? or am I just making things up now as I have tried everything else??
  12. Win10 x64, I am just copying over a win 7 iso to try but would rather stick with 10 as I upgraded my install key!
  13. yup I already tried that, and still nothing. to me it seems like the VM does not see the USB controller even though I have passed it through.
