  1. Hello, i wonder if someone managed to get working old Ati videocards pass through with KVM? Im using Qemu 4.2. I managed to get working almost other else Win98 ready 3D videocards PCI/PCI-e videocards from Nvidia, Matrox, 3dfx on GB Z170 MB with PCI slot but i never was successful with ATI PCI/PCIE-e ones. I have tried so far (card name - problem ) : ATI Mach 64 PCI - videocard - machine start segfault ATI Rage XL PCI - videocard - machine start segfault ATI X700 PCI-E - videocard - machine started, completely broken picture from boot.. and only on Analog D-SUB output, DVI is dead ATI X800 XL PCI-E - videocard - machine started, completely broken picture from boot.. and only on Analog D-SUB output, DVI is dead I also wonder is someone able to download these cards vbios roms, from some Linux or Windows tool.. i tried some Linux rom parser utility for Linux from Proxmox site (its working fine for old Nvidia cards) and GPU-Z on modern Windows 7, but i want lucky.
  2. Any news? I have Ryzen 3200 APU, which i would try, if there is a chance.. Main GPU is Nvidia Geforce 1050 Ti, its just my mother computer / nephews visiting gaming rig..
  3. I finnaly made it working! With Geforce 6600 - full 3D accelerattion for games and vanilla KVM on Z170. Detailed story of progress is here: https://www.win-raid.com/t6017f53-Windows-SE-on-Modern-Hardware.html
  4. Im trying make it working with Vanilla KVM on Mint 19.3 - its using Qemu 2.11 - i would probably need to upgraded it to newer no distro repository version. Because it seems that PS/2 mouse emulation is dead with 2.11 , at least for Qemu 4.2 on Windows is mouse for dost working fine. I have Geforce 6600 pci-e pass through working, it would be nice card to run Win98 with full 3D Apis. I wonder what machine types was at the end used? I tried to add RTL8139 and other network card, but i they were never detected inside of virtual, i only managed to find NE2k_isa, through Add new Hardware wizzard. Other problem is input for Passthrough, im used to my virtual machine use USB devices passthrough, but with Qemu Windows 98 its seems that USB is dead, how control such machine?
  5. I have this issue with retro Nvidia 6600 with KVM vanilla on Z170.. its there any other solution than reboot whole machine? Can someone confirm that at least for some cards, rom file is solution?
  6. Hello, i have just few question about Unraid, where im not sure, i tested it a while 1 year ago, it was good enough for me, but im thing about use it with my main rig. If im not wrong i can boot Unraid just through Grub optimally? So i can have "normal" no virtualized machine with Unraid boot option and some Unraid and not Unraid disks. Im i right? How physical Windows / Linux / MacOS handle Unraid discs? If im not wrong there are crypted. But there are seen as unformated, or crypted, unknow system, or etc.. I only care, if there are not some stupid error message about it, that i have to do something with them. Its possible to somehow share virtual disk between unraid machines - which are not executed at same time? Its possible to somehow share virtual disk between unraid machines, which are executed at same time? Need i multiple keyboards are mice for desktop migrated to Unraid server (with Unraid boot option)? To working with admin console and individual Unraid machines? Its keyboard hot plug / remove Unraid feature or has to have support on OS level some Unraid /Qemu special drivers etc? Could i access to unraid virtual disc from physical machine normal OS? I would like to share data on some disk for unraid / no unraid boots and seamlessly contiue with my work. Can i somehow connect classic non unraid disk / parttion to Unraid machine? I need FAT32/NFTS/EXT4/HFS from classic OSes installed by just standart desktop system on same physical machine? Can i share some para-virtualized GPU in 2 paralely started machines as in Wmware workstation? Its MS-DOS sound working within Unraid? If yes can be sound card emulated or i need passthrough of real DOS PCI sound card? Backuping - on physical machine - im backup all Linux partitions from Windows - because of lack realtime backuping tools on Linux - i mean something like Acronis True image, R-Drive, Paragon etc? How to setup backup Unraid linux partition
  7. Msdos.sys is just text file, so you can post whole its content, i personally dont have this step by step problem.. But i have problem, if something crash, i boot into Safe mode and in same mode USB keyboard and mice is not working, so i have to double reboot, is some crash happens and its annoying.. I thing that this should be fixed on QEMU - side, make PS2 working for safe mode as fallback, if USB is not working..
  8. This classic Linux community excuse, Limetech want money for Unraid where is KVM virtualization included, so they should make their best, i dont like halfass features in any product. Its not rare all virtual machines engines like Vmware, Virtualbox, all emulators works like that, QEMU and KVM even has all these features, but Unraid developers not support them.. Posibility of choice is best thing in the life and choose that i want to use emulated sound card, instead of slots of full of soundcards for passthrough, especially if new soundcards could be passthrough to old OS (no drivers and na PCI slots on present day boards).
  9. No i just installed some plugins from official list, which plugin i need for icons?
  10. I discovered unraid, because of KVM gaming and Linus tech tips is best solution for retro gaming, which i know, this is marked where is Unraid #1 solution, there is zillion of Nas solutions, so gaming and sound emulation should be priority.
  11. Why i can hear it from my physical speakers? Its quite usual that emulated sound from emulator is forwarded to physical speakers..Vmware vms could do that.
  12. Could you make it like plugin? I dont like messing with scripts, VM XML editation is bad enough.
  13. Its for gaming, i have lots bad experiences with network shares for gaming disc, local device is everytime better.
  14. Hmm, i have tried todays W98SE, sound card emulation, only working driver i have found for AC97, but not sound from speakers, i have tested Windows 7 with HD audio and again same problem, but through Teamviewer i can check that sound is working, so maybe whole Unraid sound emulation is not wokring, only sound pass through is working.
  15. Its working soundcard emulation in Win98 machine for someone?
  16. Hello i just want to ask, if Its possible to mount partition from unassigned devices into unraid VM, and if yes how?
  17. Hello, i have 1 data disc, no cache, no parity config, make sense to use other ssd for cache - will it enhance performance i have here some unused small 64 GB SSD. I also wonder, is somewere of Unraid disc configuration benchmarks, for example i wont to compare single data disc config vs. 2 data disc + 1 partity disc.
  18. Hmm its stupid decision, for me RAID is way how to backup, im backuping on OS level, that is more save from my experience and something like synch data button or disk replace Wizzard would really help, i dont mind, big warning label, that not parity disk config is dangerous operation. But back to my reality, how is easiest way for to replace disk, i just added no disk, copied all data and setting manualy, removed old disk, but array, still waiting for old disk, which i will no connect again.
  19. Ok, i will answer part of my question by myself. MB change is quite ok, you only need to reassign discs to slots, all setting and data will stay on changed. Second part i still dont understand, i have system with 1 data HDD no parity, no cache device, i add second disk to replace first one.. But on first disk is 300 GB of data a second is still empty, where is array data synch button, or how to synch data on both devices? In documentation is described possiblity to replace disk but not for 1 disk system, which is typical for trial and situation were people reading documentation..
  20. My requested was ok, everyone how once saw BIOS / UEFI settings know what is boot priority and on your picture is not info about boot device priority, its only possible to add or remove boot device. If is assumed that if OS Install ISO is add to machine, so this device has highest priority, is not good enough, because i like to have OS CD mounted for while because drivers installation, especially for old OS.
  21. Ok there QEMU parameter for simulation of Realtek8139 which could be added by manual editing of XML, is not supported by GUI (what is a shame).
  22. Hello, i just want to use dual boot between Unraid and normal OS on physical HW, but i wan to share data between both. And for this i need to mount physical disk or partition into virtual machines, its possible to do it. I far as i know in normal na Unraid QEMU its possible..
  23. Hello, i have Unraid 1 HDD configuration, how to easiest way to change MB or 1 HDD to other? I did it manually and i have to create all VMs, its there better options? Something like clone or replace MB or storage device?
  24. GPU Passthrough is running for PCI-E Geforce 7950GT details here and post below: http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/176548-unraid-vm-and-win98se-gpu-passthrough/?page=2#comment-1138483 so retro gaming is possible..
