  1. Yes its a single cache drive. Everything is still on it. After the backup is finished I will try starting the array. The data on my array should be safe I guess? All 4 drives are marked with a green dot.
  2. Hey guys, I have kind of a big problem changed the hardware running unraid and extremely strange things began to happen... In the end I was able to boot my system, had some problems to get UEFI working, but now if I connect to my machine using the IP address, it will use SSL („code“.unraid.net), even if I hadn’t it enabled before. Also is the name of my machine Tower again. Autostarting the array was luckily disabled. My array drives are still configured, but the cache drive is empty. If I select the SSD, there’s no green dot but a blue one instead. As I said, I didn’t start the array yet. Is there any way to repair my cache drive? I have an crashplan backup and restored the config folder to my unraid stick (kept the old one also), but then only my cache drive is configured and the array disks aren’t. If there’s no way to repair it, I guess I should backup the cache disk, select it as „new“ cache drive and then copy everything back on it? For the time being I have mounted the cache drive (unassigned disks) and connected an external drive and started copying everything over as backup. On my array should also be an up to date backup of my flash drive. Hopefully someone knows how to get everything back to normal the easiest way.
  3. I'm thinking about splitting my current server/main pc into two since power gets much more expensive in germany. Beside a low power consumption server, which will run pfsense vm, a lot of dockers and stores most of my data, I definitely need a little bit more power in a second pc which wouldn’t run 24/7. This pc should be able to run windows, linux and macOS. So I came to the following idea: I put the unraid usb flash drive into my separate usb pcie extension card and also insert a second flash drive into it as “array”, because I guess I need at least one “disk” for running VMs even if I would passthrough disks directly instead of images on an array. That way I would be able to passthrough nearly everything (especially SATA and all USB ports without of course the pcie card) to my VMs. Should that work? Or will it be problematic to run unraid from an separate usb card instead from internal usb ports?
  4. Hey there, which cpu should be sufficient enough for running unraid with a pfsense VM (usual home network, nothing special) and some dockers (deluge, nzb, sonarr, radarr, plex without transcoding and nextcloud), so it won’t hang up or stutter just because of unpacking some downloaded files, and also needs as little power as possible? I guess an Intel one, but which one would you recommend? Thx! Felix EDIT: maybe even an Supermicro SoC board would be an option?
  5. Was someone able to install the latest version of clover (4895)? I'm using 4674 right now an it works absolutely fine. If I update to 4895 or 4901 (which was released nearly an hour ago), I can't boot anymore. I get stuck at the TianoCore logo. I've discovered a new driver AudioDxe-64.efi, which I guessed I won't need anyway and sounds like it could cause problems. After deleting it it shows "clover 4895, scan entries". But nothing more happens. Tried it with HFSPlus.efi and VBoxhfs.efi, neither worked and also not both at the same time... Beside that, I don't use any unusual drivers. Also tried replacing the new drivers64UEFI folder with my backed up one, but won't boot either. The image attached shows all the driver I'm currently using with clover 4674. EDIT: I've also tried removing my old drivers64UEFI folder before the installation, so all drivers will get installed. After that I've copied the Apple* ones over, but also doesn't work. EDIT2: So I found a version which could maybe work (4862 from tonymacx86). My external USB backup drive (HFS+) is recognized. But usually I'm using an NVMe drive with APFS. I'm pretty sure the APFS filesystem isn't working properly... and I've already tried different drivers. EDIT3: Finally got it working (at least 4862 from tonymacx86). The problem was ApfsDriverLoader-64.efi. Had to delete it completely and instead use only apfs-patched.efi. Now its working so far
  6. Works perfectly! The only "problem" is: now every core of my Ryzen 1700 boosts up to 3.7GHz, isn't Turbo Boost supposed to only boost one core up top 3.7GHz or alternatively every core to 3.2GHz? By the way, I'm using the first 6 cores for my gaming and daily vm (these are isolated in unraid) and the last two are available to everything else (unraid itself, docker and so on)... does it matter which cores I isolate for my vms?
  7. The method is working fine for me at least for video output. But is hdmi audio supposed to work as well?
  8. Thanks! It' working now CSM was set to Auto, changed it to Disabled. First I thought it's still not working, then I created an Q35 machine, which also showed the TianoCore logo after pressing a key but quickly also showed a loading logo and some seconds later I was in the setup menu. I was then curious whether i440fx also works when waiting some time, yes it did! So I'm not sure whether I would have had to wait just a little bit longer before (because I maybe only saw the TianoCore logo instead of windows installation loading), but disabling CSM wasn't a bad idea at all I guess. EDIT: Even though it looks kind of strange now...
  9. Of course: unraid-diagnostics-20190203-1535.zip windows10.xml Thanks for taking a look! Just tried it again with a freshly created vm, still the same.
  10. Hey there, right now I have these pcie cards in my server: pcie1x usb card for vms pcie16x gpu (sapphire7950) pcie1x wifi+bt card for macos vm pcie16x quad port NIC for pfsense pcie1x empty pcie4x empty m.2 ssd for vm I'm thinking about getting a nvidia gpu for gaming some day, but I would like to keep my sapphire for macos, so I would do something like this: pcie1x usb card for vms pcie16x nvidia pcie1x wifi+bt card for macos vm pcie16x gpu (sapphire7950) pcie1x empty pcie4x quad port NIC for pfsense (but force in bios to be pcie1x) m.2 ssd for vm I've tried something like that with an old nvidia9400, but it didn't work. The usb card, wifi+bt and quad NIC weren't recognized by my system, but I don't understand why. Of course I'm not able to run the pcie4x (quad nic) in 4x, because then the pcie1x slots get disabled. But if I set the pcie4x to 1x, shouldn't I at least get all my pcie1x devices? I've read somewhere that some people cut their quad nic so it fits in pcie1x slots, because they seem to not need more than that. But then shouldn't my "planned" system also work?
  11. I've got a really strange problem when trying to install win10 using a ovmf vm: It doesn't matter whether I use vnc or passthrough my gpu, every time I get asked to press a key, then the vm resets and freezes with the tianocore logo (I also can't enter the ovmf bios settings anymore). If I don't press a button, the efi shell launches. If I start the win10 installation from there (fs0: ...) I once again have to press a key and the vm once again resets and freezes. I've tried different topologies, win10 installation isos and so on... win10 with seabios is working just fine, but I don't get it. My system: ASUS CH6, R1700, Sapphire7950 (flashed with UEFI bios, definitely working since I see the boot screen when launching my macOS vm)
  12. I gave my item model number at techpowerup a try and found this https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/164761/164761 . It seems as flashing in a vm should work, but the atiflash win software crashed my vm after I started it. So I created an dos usb stick with atiflash. Worked flawlessly, but UEFI doesn’t work nevertheless. Without defining a rom my windows vm (seabios) showed UEFI enabled in GPU-Z, but my mac vm and also windows UEFI won’t show a picture even with a rom file. Unraid was booted in UEFI mode of course... I also tried the GPU as secondary and used an old gpu as primary. So I guess sadly I won’t get UEFI on my old 7950 EDIT: HA! Found one this one is working for me so far https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/137271/powercolor-hd7950-3072-121105 Tried it in a vm first and flashed it some minutes ago using atiflash in dos
  13. Hey there, I just found an UEFI-bios for my old Sapphire 7950 GPU. The problem is, how do I get it flashed since I don’t have another pc near me. As it seems I need windows for flashing. Is it possible/safe to flash a gpu using passthrough in a windows vm? Or do I have to start an bare metal windows installation on my computer for flashing?
  14. Can you tell me if the card struggles with vm restarts or completely switching to an other vm?
  15. I've decided to give Crashplan a try, it is backing up right now. So in case my unraid server wouldn't boot up anymore because all drives died over night, how exactly would I restore my files? I'm just curious because there doesn't seem to be a way to just download (certain) backed up data? EDIT: my mistake, thought the web service would restore to the machine instead of offering a download...
