  1. Not if you do nvme pass through according to SI1 guide. I did the upgrade to gpt with mbr2gpt and all successful. NVME boots now hardware passed to vm and baremetal.
  2. Ok followed the guide....It did not work. And after investigating I see that Win10 was installed Legacy mode. (facepalm) I am wondering how this would have happened as I had this working beginning of 2020. Did a reinstall of windows about 2months ago. Not sure why it would have changed to Legacy as I never changed the BIOS. I am going to try converting Legacy to UEFI by following this https://www.maketecheasier.com/convert-legacy-bios-uefi-windows10/ Otherwise reinstall..... (double facepalm)
  3. The question I have: I want to find out if there is a updated method (video) of passing a already running win10 nvme to a newly created unraid vm. And I am using the Kernel helper docker (ich777) that recompiles the kernel to include the reset patch for amd gpu - which works awesomely well. Unraid setup I want to run - Unraid with Gaming VM (gpu & nvme pass through as bare metal) + VMs to play with for fun and some work poc's and....able to boot from nvme win10 directly if chosen in boot selection of bios. The config I have is as follow: Unraid 6.9.0
  4. Skitals you still gonna wait for RC of 6.9 for a Navi recompile. Can we not speak nicely to them to include your fixes so we get updates as they come along. Surely they can understand our dilemma with the AMD Navi GPU passthrough. Thanks
  5. Hi Remember that the X series Ryzen does not come with integrated graphics processors. Google Search: Does 3900x have integrated graphics? Both the Ryzen 3900X and Ryzen 3950X are X series processors meaning they don't have an integrated graphical processing unit. So you'll have to buy a discrete graphic card along side the processor. We had the same issue when the first Ryzen 2 Threadrippers came out - we bought two machines for work servers and didnt know we had to buy graphics cards...so we couldn't setup the machines until we bought the cards...kids before xmas,
  6. Hi I would like to know if its possible to have multiple virtual displays in a win10 VM. There is the possibility to add display cards but could they be virtual like the VNC? Reason is I want to recreate my work machine into VM and display two screens. Not sure if its possible.
  7. Hi guys I need some help with a win10 vm i created and I followed the link stating how to do the VirtIO drivers. I tried to do it two different ways: 1. When the dialog appears to select the disk to install windows on...there I selected the viostor folder and it loaded the driver for the disk. Then when win10 was loaded I went into the device manager and noticed 4 items unknown. I did the install inf file method as mentioned - right click on inf and install - Using Windows File Explorer, navigate to the VirtIO virtual cd-rom to browse its contents. - Naviga
  8. Happy birthday @Squid
  9. Skitals would you be able to {compile the latest kernel} = {magic} with the patches again for us soon ? Thanks
  10. Bud, love it! My machine is working as its supposed to now with the navi patch worked in. I have however had a few hangs...where the machine would hang and then the screen would turn black....I would then have to force stop the VM and I even had a few hard reset on the box. I have now received a notice that my version of unraid is not secure and I need to update urgently to the latest version - security reasons. Would you be able to work this patch into the latest version for us ? tx
  11. My unraid was on 6.8.1 already and decided to downgrade to the rc5 to see if all works for me. I renamed my bz* files - copied in the rc5 bz* files - copied in the Skitals bz* kernel files. I was forced to Delete VM and recreate new VM, as when I tried to pass through one of the USB devices listed inside Form view - Error about not understanding the "Vendor" of a PCI device. The recreate of the VM and then passing through the device and also passing through the nvme bare metal with the HostDev method in XML view worked perfect. Afterwards I used the VFIO-pci-config tool t
  12. Could someone help me with my questions? 1. Location of the older downloads (6.8.0-rc5) on unraid site. 2. nvme placement in my scenario - 1 as cache disk and then 1 as unassigned drive to pass through But then the array is empty....cant start unraid without array....would this mean I need to add another drive just as something into the array section and is there a SIZE REQUIREMENT for that array dummy drive? Seeing that I want to run my VM on passed through nvme controller and disk and the other dockers/vms on the nvme in cache (shares: domains/appdata/system)
  13. 6.8.0-rc5 Where do I download that as the manual downloads page does not provide it and the automated usb creator neither does. "pass through one of the nvmes for win10" - Is this covered in a Space Invader One youtube? "use the other for unraid cache" - Ok so the second one would be cache where you would put unraid "shares" - the domains, system and appdata shares. These are for the use of other vms and dockers etc.... On the placement of the nvmes in unraid the one goes now to cache location ...do I need to put the other one into cache or array ... or do I ju
  14. Hey Skitals I have spoken to you before regarding my rig. I have narrowed my issues down to the reset issue. Running Gigabyte x570 Aorus Ultry Wifi + Ryzen 3700 + Gigabyte rx5700XT Gaming OC + Corsair 16GB x 2 Vengeance RAM + 2 x 2TB nvme. I have managed to restart from scratch and get UnRaid running with Win 10 VM: Win 10 VM (1909) installed with latest win updates Updated devices in Device Manager with virtio drivers: 2 x system devices 1 x network adapter This is all via using VNC to connect for the first time. Thereafter, I edit
  15. Yes you're 100% correct. How do we beg them to place this as priority on fix radar?
  16. I am running a AND ryzen 3700 and AMD RX5700XT and sitting with the reset bug. I want to buy unraid but can't as my VMs dont release and then I need to restart the whole HOST PC. Not viable. My trial for Unriad is running out now 3 days left and I am still trying to get it to work with hacks. Is there a fix in the foreseeable future for this bug of no release on the GPU ? Really would love to run Unraid on my box as I am running it on my small HP NAS PC and love it.
  17. Well I was able to pass the graphics through once. But I didnt have keyboard and mouse passed so I restarted the VM...thereafter never again...it starts the VM in VM Manager but then nothing gets passed through. I am running the latest RC9 SysLinuxConfig kernel /bzimage append initrd=/bzroot video=efifb:off PCIe ACS override: Disabled ....for now VM Machine: Q35-4.1 Graphics Card: AMD Radeon RX 5700 / 5700 XT (0d:00.0) Graphics ROM BIOS: /mnt/disk1/isos/Gigabyte.RX5700XT.8192.190909.rom Sound Card: AMD Navi 10 HDMI Audio (0d:0
  18. Will give it a try in the morning, thanks for helping. Edit: Hi Skitals I have created everything brand new, new Unraid image download(latest rc9) cleaned the drives and followed your steps to the T. One thing I did notice that I did wrong previously was that I updated the video card drivers with the Virtio drivers as I would for normal VM operation. After I "did not do the driver update for video card" - it passed the card "once". I did not have keyboard mouse passed so I could not get the VM stopped - Force stopped it. After rebooting the Unraid system
  19. Hi Hi Sleepyme I initially tried the i440fv machine when you create the VM as it comes as the standard config but this did not work for my setup and a friend suggested I use the Q35 machine instead. This also did not work in the end. tx
  20. Hi Skitals Yeh we tried the UEFI boot and then changed it back to normal boot. I have added the boot flag video=efifb:off to the non-gui boot config and it also did not work. I would love to get this working as I have UnRaid running my media storage and its awesome ! Tx
  21. Hi, I have now unsuccessfully tried for a week to get my gigabyte x5700xt card passed through to a win10 pro vm on my trial unraid. Hardware: GB Aorus Ultra mobo F10 GB x5700xt card 32gb ram 2 x 2tb nvme USB 4 port card 2 x displays Requirements: Want unraid as host os with a win10 gaming vm. X5700xt should be passed for gaming. I want second/third vm for work related win/Linux stuff. Could add second video card if required. Peripherals like mouse, keyb, sound should be passed to main gaming vm. Work VMs will be accessed from gaming vm
