  1. Mine has been doing this too, even if I don't start a VM. Seems to happen more with a Windows 10 VM running. Power shuts off completely for me though and no restart. Just shuts off the whole tower. PSU still has the lights on the Mobo on, so it does not seem like a power issue. There was one instance where just starting up the whole tower again did not work by pressing the power button. In that case, I turned off the PSU from the back and then turned the PSU back on before turning on the computer. It worked, everything seems fine, but now it still periodically shuts off (as in off without warning, NOT shutdown). PSU issue? (750watts) Heating issue? It is pretty crammed in there and I have like eight 140mm fans, most with dust filters. Let me know what you guys think.
  2. UPDATE: It was a user error. I was trying to login to a user account that didn't have a password, whereas I normally login as root. Sorry for any confusion. FURTHER UPDATE: Try logging in as root and change the User Accounts/Profiles, if need be? It might be a user error... like me. =D
  3. I don't know how to explain it other than the unRAID OS in GUI Mode has tiny font. So small, I can't read when I look at the Start/Lime Menu entry for "Midnight Commander". I wouldn't care so much, if it all just meant that the other programs would work great, but it doesn't. Midnight commander also starts really small. I can't read anything, when the Midnight Commander window opens up. I need to find a way to change the Desktop Environment font for unRAID GUI Mode... any ideas?
  4. Hi all, anyone found a solution to this problem. I have the SAME exact thing. I will run an chkdsk on mine too. I should also note that on mine, in addition to the same exact errors and conditions, I also have been forced to store my system away and not use it for about 4 months. I get this: unRAID Server OS version 6.3.5 default via dev br0 linkdown dev br0 proto kernel scope link src So, other than the conditions noted by Sabot, I have the following: - Had to move, so my computer has been sitting in storage for a few months in a sealed bag. - I am connecting via ethernet to a new network. - I had a static IP set on my home system, when I had it on my own network. Any help at all would be appreciated.
  5. Hola! lankanmon, The way I did it (which worked fantabulous) was through straight hardware, but I can only really speak for my monitor setup. I have a motherboard with three x16 pci-e slots, so I just put a crappy nvidia on top and two decent video cards following suit. Card A: (Nvidia) connects VGA to Monitor1 Card B: Connects DVI to Monitor1; hdmi to Monitor 2 Card C: Connects hdmi to Television; dvi to Monitor 3 Whenever I just want to pop on over to WebGUI Unraid running out of Card A. I just hit the Input button on Monitor1. I haven't solved the keyboard problem yet, but if I did I'd have "one keyboard to rule them all!!!!" type of situation going, with a single hotkey to switch between all the operating systems. Lemme know if you find a solution to that. Maybe this will help? Hope this helps? Cheers.
  6. Hey Bob, just googled that VNC thingy and yeah... I'm fairly certain my VM is passingthrough all peripherals and controllers and NOT using VNC (which I'm assuming VirtualBox does natively as software). Here's the code that's automatically generated (while the VM is running) when I check the VM XML file: <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'> <alias name='input0'/> </input> <input type='keyboard' bus='ps2'> <alias name='input1'/> </input> <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes' xvga='yes'> <driver name='vfio'/> <source> <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x09' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/> </source> <alias name='hostdev0'/> <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x06' function='0x0'/> </hostdev> I think that means the VM is trying to find an old PS2 mouse 'n keyboard and the Video Card is passed through. If you have insight or viola's, lemme know. Thanks
  7. Bob! Back from the ashes! Epic. Ok, got it working... err... fixed... you know what I mean... In any case, I'll try your solution next time this happens. And... .... I don't actually know what VNC is, but I'll google it. In the meantime, I will be backing up my vdisk1.img to a passedthrough HDD that I use for this purpose (sort of) and then I can have a backup, should something go wrong. For those wondering... here was my solution: - copied vdisk1.img to HDD - converted vdisk1.img to vdisk.vdi on my laptop running Maui (tried inside the Maui VM I installed on unRAID, but unfortunately, running a virtual machine inside a virtual machine does not work... or don't have the technical expertise to make it work) via eSATA'ing the HDD to the comp (I have two 3.5" hotswappable bays on my tower). [1] - ran vdisk.vdi in Maui's VM program (I'll give you a hint on which one: it rhymes with "irtualBox" =); created a whole new VM and all that jazz. - used my laptop keyboard in the VM software to fix Windows (Startup Repair from a CD-ROM iso; ended up using System Restore actually--worked fantastically). - converted vdisk.vdi back to vdisk1.img; on unRAID actually, using the native qemu-img command. [2] - MidnightCommando'd that shee-it back to my Windows VM domain folder. - Pretzel. ... Presto? Yeah. Presto! Started a parity check once completed the System Restore Point (which I made sure to not have it complete until I got the damn .img back into the domain folder). But it's up and running, in full swing, no hiccups. Even re-updated my Steam games (like 4 of them).

If anyone has any questions, I'd be glad to try to assist. A special thanks to you BobPhoenix for not giving up, yer a trooper, man! Cheers.
  8. So, it all boils down to this: Mounting the drive-in another VM didn't work because the hibernation file didn't exist, changing the boot order for the CD-ROM to boot first didn't work because the keyboard still did not power up in order to hit a key when it asked to hit any key to start the CD, and no matter what I try for USB pass-through or USB controller pass-through, the USB keyboard doesn't power up during Windows Error Recovery or Windows Resume Loader. Is there any other solution?
  9. Yeah, sorry, forgot to address that... No hidden files. Did that before snooping around that extra mounted drive (hibernated windows).
  10. Nope. That didn't work either. ... Sigh... The keyboard is just not powering up... Anyone know a fix for that? Seems like it's my only option at this point.
  11. Bob, you may have just saved my life.... Or...err... Vm.... Uhh.... You know what I mean! Seriously, I looked for a similar solution; so, thanks for telling me, because the extra windows vm + mounting the hibernated vm vdisk to delete hiberfile.sys... Yeah, that didn't work. The damn file wasn't there (even though it boots into Windows Resume Loader... ? ... o.O) I'mma gonna try this 'soon ahz ah git home, sir! Yew amazin' man! FYI, i also couldn't get the damn passthrough to work properly and then the power went out in my place. So, then i had to restart unraid with an awesome 2TB parity check! Exciting!!! =\
  12. Huh... I didn't consider that. Thanks so much. I'll search around to see how to mount another drive into a new VM. Thanks a lot actually. Do you know if passing through an Entire USB Controller will allow the VM to have access to a keyboard connected to that controller before the Windows OS starts? If anyone knows, get back to me. I have a feeling this may be an easier fix, if possible... (then I can just use the keyboard to actually select one of the Windows Resume Loader options).
  13. Does anyone know how to fix this? Or rather, is there a way to access the C:\ drive on the vdisk in order to delete the hibernate file?
  14. Hmm... cool. Thanks. I'll look into that.
  15. Oh, running at the same time is no problem. I've got that all working. What I'm looking to do is add yet another graphics card solely to output the host CLI. It would make things ... more convenient. That's why I was wondering if there was some .conf or .cfg file somewhere in the unRAID root that deals with identifying the GPU connected and selecting the GPU on the first PCIe slot to output the host video. I want to change that to the second slot. =D
