  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
  16. Hi, yeah, I'm more or less guided by "2 Gamers, 1 PC" (1 CPU?) So: Confirmed. Goal: Multiple Virtual Machines with GPU passthrough of a single graphics card to each VM (then I can get two monitors per VM). M/B: ASUS CROSSHAIR V FORMULA-Z CPU: AMD FX 6300 @ 3.5Ghz GPU1: MSI Radeon R7 360 (2gbDDR5) GPU2: Empty GPU3: XFX Core R7 240 (1gbDDR3) Waiting?: HP/Asus NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT (512mbDDR2) As for HDD... Just the two separate 1Tb in the Array, plus it's 2Tb Parity and the 128Gb SSD cache. My aim really is "mostly work, but powerful enough to play some nice PC games, even if the woman has to use the computer, too." So, one Maui Linux VM and one Windows VM. I've got 3 monitors and 1 TV and I planned to put the host on an already taken monitor, but input from the Nvidia card to a different video port on that monitor. I like the idea of the host on it's own monitor, even if that monitor is already taken up by one of the VMs. I can just switch inputs. I've been having to get to unRAID headless and while nice and convenient (it will be a godsend later when I can get Wake on LAN working nice), I'd rather have my laptop ready to use or already being used for things other than managing my desktop. Hope this helps. Anyone know of any files to fiddle with, yet? Thanks all!
  17. Hi all. Got an interesting question, but first let me start by saying that I can probably go digging for all my system specs for this question, but I don't think it's necessary and I'm kinda lazy, atm. So, I'll just rattle off approximations for your guys' convenience and you guys can demand specific/detailed system specs as needed to help out. I'd also like to add that I'm excited at the possibility here! (if it's at all possible). Ok, here it is: 6-Core CPU 24 GbRAM [(2x8)+(2x4)] 1 Gddr5 GPU AMD <= FIRST PCIe SLOT 2 Gddr3 GPU AMD <= THIRD PCIe SLOT 1Tb+1Tb HDD Array 2Tb HDD Parity 128Gb SSD Cache VM: Maui Linux (forked from Kubuntu) SECOND PCIe SLOT technically empty NOT YET INSTALLED: 512Mddr2? GPU Nvidia (VERY OLD... it was previously attached to a WinVista tower...) My question: Can I install the Nvidia card in the second slot (from the top) and have the host display from that card? Is there a way to bypass having to have the First PCIe slot output the host? I'm really excited about the possibility! I'm figuring some kind of .conf file to mess with or so? PLEASE tell me this is possible! Thanks all.
  18. WOW... I'm not the brightest, as you all can see. I didn't even see that "make_bootable_linux" file... Ok. Thanks for the tips guys. I'm such a dunce!
  19. I'm not quite sure I know what the Creator tool or the Mac installer does when creating the USB flash drive for unRAID to install/access for the first time. I want to know, because I will be creating the USB flashdrive from a Linux distro (Maui --> forked from Kubuntu). I'm savvy enough to work basic CLI/Terminal commands (dd, cp, rm, etc.). And I can definitely look up any new commands as needed (probably end up on Stackoverflow). So, my question is, with the unRAIDServer zip file, what EXACTLY is supposed to be happening with the files in the zip folder to get them from the zip folder to the flashdrive? Further, getting the Key URL (I purchased mine; 12 attached storage devices) on to the flash drive... should I just use the mac installer? Thanks all.
