  1. Pretty sure it will work with integrated graphics. I think I had a test machine set up on a 4790K using the integrated graphics.
  2. Do you have a second GPU? Nvidia documentation still says you need two. From your link- Do you need to have more than one GPU installed or can you leverage the same GPU being used by the host OS for virtualization? One GPU is required for the Linux host OS and one GPU is required for the Windows virtual machine.
  3. Great video. I used this method to dump a 2080ti bios and it got it working. I had to use the bind vfio method and was able to get a Windows 10 VM. Everything worked great at first and the VM survived several reboots. However when I rebooted Unraid I started getting error code 43s and no drivers. I watched the other video and manually updated the xml to multifunction and changed 4 devices to the same slot but still getting the error. Any ideas? It worked before rebooting the Unraid server.
  4. I bought those dual E5 rigs that were going for cheap some time ago. I have been thinking of swapping that out for an AMD x570. If I go high end I'll keep the same number of cores and threads but in a reduced form factor and probably power draw. However, the E5s have been set it and forget it. Any opinion on swapping to Ryzen? I don't do a ton with it. Sage, a test VM, Plex, not really hammering it with anything.
  5. Amazon is out of stock but will ship it if it comes in.
  6. I don’t think I tried that. Luckily I don’t think the issue has occurred again since I posted.
  7. Anyone use these for gaming or setup a bare metal pass through? I keep going back and forth on building an Unraid server and using a VM for work/gaming versus two separate machines. I have the old dual E5-2670(?) I picked up a while ago when they were cheap I set up a VM in it and tried some VR and games but it felt a little “jittery” in games and I eventually abandoned that project.
  8. That was the last bit of the log. I think that I have it working correctly as it shows up in the LAN games when I log into Steam. However, it appears to get the Xbox connected to it you have to run the windows store version and connect through gamertags. Thanks for the info and links. After some further googling it still appears that steam can only play with steam. I found this from a gaming host. I was hoping that most of these posts were just old info ~2018 but it still appears that crossplay is still somewhat limited. I can still post the screenshots if you wish but it looks like I've found my answer. Steam Version -Windows, Steam-Linux and Steam-Mac. You “can” play together on a Steam based server. PS4 Version – with other PS4 players or a special custom PC server, available from Studio Wildcard ‘selected’ hosting providers. Microsoft/Xbox Version – with other Xbox players and/or those running the Windows 10 version of ARK (available in the Windows App store).
  9. I'm attempting to set up one of these for the first time using ARK. I'm getting a message in the log at the end which makes me think it isn't working. Success! App '376030' fully installed. ---Prepare Server--- ---Server ready--- ---Start Server--- [S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed. Setting breakpad minidump AppID = 346110 I've googled around but can't find a silver bullet to fix this issue. Also this being the first time trying will I be able to find this server via Xbox? I've set up port forwarding so I don't think this is an issue. Thanks for any help or pointing me in the right direction.
  10. For your windows VM are you stubbing out a hard drive and being able to run it bare metal like spacedinvader or do you have it running off an SSD or something? Also not to troll but I guess I expected the 3900 to be able to surpass the 2600. I guess there is that much VM overhead or did you just configure it to be equal. I know the 2600K is still somewhat relevant. I’m still running that in my main rig now.
  11. Thanks for clearing this up. Sorry for bad information. Is there something different with parity though? Maybe in the old days, like parity writes to the entire drive?
  12. I’m not disagreeing with the value of knowing if your drive is healthy but I think even if your drive is cleared Unraid will clear a parity drive.
