  1. So. Long story short: I have FusionIO drive which requires driver to be recognized. It works in windows environment with said driver. No problem. Now, is there a way to pass it to VM even it is not recognized by unraid?
  2. I definetly will wait. This was victory already.
  3. Legacy. I was fiddling around with files and used EFI- folder name as it now seems to come. I tried forcing uefi too. Didn't even boot. Sadly no. That still persists but I can live with that now I got system even partially running so I can set my Steam lib gaming rig for GF while I run some Apex. Kernel patch should fix this, you say? Today I try to combat those audio bugs and later I'll set up couple USB hubs for easier device access and switch.
  4. Okay so. As I was giving up, I did it. Newest drivers 19.7.1 works, both cards passed trough on their own VMs. I played around again with different combinations and way too little sleep, too many hours in this forum and then I found this one below: Modifying this for my system, using correct identifier for my first Radeon VII, I managed to put it trough. With OVMF and Q35 3.1 I succesfully installed current AMD drivers. Just Display and audio, no radeon software yet. Wanted to play safe first. I have minor audio issues, but I guess I am past worst problems. I hope. Thanks @bastlanyway for replying, and thanks @Siwat2545 where ever you are In to the new misadventures!
  5. System specs here: X399 Zenith Extreme Alpha with 2950X 64GB Ram 2x Radeon VII 950 Pro 512GB as cache 2x 1TB 860 Evos as array (parity+disk1) There are two issues I have encountered: 1) primary GPU, when passed trough for VM, has black screen. If I launch system with VNC, it boots and goes to Win10 install. With RVII system goes black. With Seabios I get few lines fo text and then black screen. 2) other VM with second RVII goes well and Win10 install has no issues. When I try to install AMD driver package, everything crashes. Any ideas? I am new to linux environment and Unraid so please be kind : ) What ever I could provide to help, let me know. Thanks

    If RAM is found on this list, it is Bdie and suitable for Ryzen/TR: https://benzhaomin.github.io/bdiefinder/

    I have 4x16GB Gskills coming along. Those are verified Bdie so there should be no issue to run with the 'The Stilt profile', which seems to be best non extreme OC and should be stable with all 2gen Ryzen.

    This is very good to hear. I was going to abandon my plan with 2990X for dual 16core system, but I trust it's doable now then. Just have to wait good, solid mobo to handle all the tasks I need to.
  9. Okay. So. I am planning to invest for Samsung 950 PRO m.2 SSD, which I must use with adapter in pcie slot. Would it be possible to passtrough it and boot that same installed Windows in virtual machine as I plan to keep "normal boot" too.
  10. That's a good idea. Had forgotten about the on board usb headers! There is very helpful guide for passing trough usb onboard controllers: http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=36768.0 Even I managed to pull this off I have X79-mobo (Rampage IV BE) which itself has five usb controllers and I managed to get 4 usb3.0 ports for both VM which are hot plugable. I am sure it would work on X99 boards as they sure have at least same amount of usb controllers too. Also, there is even one controller left (which controls onboard usb 2.0). You just need to be carefull not to passtrough via same bus unraid stick is in : ) But sure, pcie bracket hooked in onboard usb-header would give lots of ports if needed.
  11. Just came in my mind. Should I go with stock, or just ramp multiplier up from 45 to, lets say, 42 while keeping voltage same?
  12. CPU passes IBT with maximum ram with current voltage and haven't crashed ever. I haven't actually tweaked memory at all, only enabled XMP. I might try with stock multiplier later.
  13. Now you mentioned, it is hauled up to 4.5GHz (From 3.5). I might try with stock clocks. However voltages shouldn't affect then?
  14. Well now you mentioned it, crashing seems to happen still. I haven't had really time to tinker with this, but I did manage to passtrough usb controllers for both my VMs without additional problems. Didn't need additional pcie usb card after all : )
  15. I got second 980ti (Second Gigabyte G1) so I can use natual Windows from different drive to run 980ti SLI. I have 1440p/144Hz monitor (Acer XB270HU) so I really can use all that power in new games. Like Division goes barely 60fps with single card all settings maxed and takes nice 5GB chink of vram. Anyway, pcie 3.0 has really 1-2% difference when using 16x or 8x slot so I am good here even I had to use throwaway card like you said. I still think it is better to sacrifice option for iGPU in favor of more cpu cores here. 4930K@4.5GHz pack quite a punch in single core performance and you can have six cores per VM. Or in my case 6+4 with 2 left hor host. 8 ram slots help too, currently I have 4x 8GB 2400MHz Dominators there so 12GB per machine (and rest for the host) is enough in most cases. LGA2011 boards sure have their advantages here, but LGA115X boards sure offer enough to have decent 2 headed gaming rig.
