  1. Don’t get a gigabyte x570 Aorus pro wifi. It’s very unraid friendly.
  2. Sweet! Got it working! I had switched my secondary drives from VirtIO to SCSI launched VM to install drivers. If I change my primary to SCSI my VM bootloops. I had to create a new VM and it worked! Does it matter if I use discard='unmap'? It seems to work with or without it. Also my drivers are all physical disks and not vdisk files so I'm not sure if that matters. Drives C, G and H are SSDs and my D drive is a NVME SSD. I didn't add discard='unmap' yet.

    VM FAQ

    Do I need to add the discard='unmap' if I'm passing the physical disk to unraid?
  4. I got this fixed.i thought I deleted this thread.sorry
  5. I have 2 SSD drives passed through my Win10 VM but for some reason my primary drive C says "Optimization not available" and my G drive is recognized as a Hard disk instead of a SSD. How can I fix this? All drives are setup as VirtIO drives.
  6. Strange thing happened a couple of days ago and I can't figure out what is going on. Ever since I removed my NVME drive my win10 vm gets no display. Zero settings changed in unraid and in BIOS. This is so weird! -I tried creating a new VM and still doesn't work but VNC works fine. -tried different display port and hdmi port -if i change the primary gpu from iGPU to PEG or Auto I get display but i won't be able to passthrough this way. So, right now I'm not sure what is going on. Can't be the GPU since it works when i set it as a primary GPU.

  7. You have a usb controller in group 9 and 16. Does that mean one of the usb controllers can be passed through to a VM without affecting the unraid flash drive?
  8. With the cards you have.... Does that mean your primary pcie x16 will run at 8x?
  9. Cause we want to spoil ourselves with the newest tech
  10. Thanks! This will be the most expensive build I have ever built and I'm super excited about it!
  11. Do you know if the USB 2 are on a separate controller or are they all combined? If it's on a separate controller I can save a pcie slot.
  12. I think I'll go with this one too since it has more m. 2 slots.
  13. How many pcie cards do you have installed in your system. I plan on having a gpu via pcie x16, usb controller, and Dell perc in it mode and made another gpu in pcie 1x (riser card).
  14. Plz keep us posted! I'm looking for a X570 mobo for my gaming nas build.
  15. Ordered a Ryzen 3900X and 32gb of 3866MHz ram but not sure on which motherboard to get. Would like a board that can hold a GPU, my Sas card and maybe a USB card. This is for my Gaming Nas.
