  2. I've attached my log file, there are loads of errors in there! Not sure if they're related to this or something else? tower-syslog-20190619-1324.zip
  3. Ok tried dumping the GPU BIOS but got an input/output error! So tried downloading from Techpowerup.com but still get the same error! Here's my syslinux in case that helps.
  4. Hi, I have set-up a Win XP VM and I’m getting this error “internal error: qemu unexpectedly closed the monitor” whenever I try and pass through an old ATI AIW X600 PCIe graphics card, the card will pass through fine using OVMF to an Ubuntu VM! It seems to be an issue with Seabios pass through only! The ATI card shows as 2 graphics cards as it has capture and a TV card built in.

  5. The drive is a bare metal install of Windows 10 that I use as my Win 10 VM. I did it this way as I was having out of memory problems and so wanted to be able to boot directly into windows, I've now solved the out of memory issue (turned out to be a dodgy SATA card!!) but would like to retain the ability to boot straight into Windows for the occasional time that I need all the horsepower the machine can provide! The partition that I want to mount at boot is for the swap file, this really helped with the issues I was having so want to keep it! So will it cause me issues if I just leave the whole drive mounted? Cheers, Tim
  6. I thought, maybe wrongly, that it would cause problems if the drive is mounted and then used as a VM?
  7. I had a feeling you'd say that! 😂 Thanks for the example, I'll give it a go!
  8. @jonp @testdasi So I've found the problem! It seems it was the SATA card! Very hard to work out as it was only a problem when moving or dealing with large files! I realized that it only happened when I was accessing the 500gb hard drive (D drive in windows) that I use for capturing video and other large files that I don't need on the array or where I want speed of access. It is connected to a SATA card that I have passed through to the VM's. I was again trying to make a USB stick installer and it kept failing, crashing the whole system. I realised that the downloads folder was on the D drive so I tried it on the C drive and it worked fine! So I've swapped out the card and works fine from the D drive as well now! I've also added a swap file, which also seems to have made a difference! I have a stable system at last! Thanks for everyone's help and sorry for all my rants of frustration!!
  9. Ok shame! I’ll just have to remember to unmount the ones I don’t want each time I re-boot then!
  10. Ok thanks, I don't see any switches for any of the partitions there are 5, what is a valid partition? The disk is a SSD with my Windows 10 vm on it and can also be booted into baremetal should the need arise! So the 4 partitions that I don't want to Auto-Mount are the EFI, Recovery, Reserved and Main Windows ones. The one that I want to mount is a 32GB ext4 partition for swap file! Cheers, Tim
  11. Hi, thanks but I think you misunderstood me, I’ve done that and would like the 1 partition that I have mounted to auto re-mount on re-boot or array re-start, but not the other partitions? cheers, Tim
  12. Hi, does anyone know if you can auto-mount just 1 partition from a disk? Cheers, Tim
  13. Hi, sorry for the delay replying (work got in the way!). Yes, I was running Windows 10 and 7 on Ubuntu and also a small Debian VM for my PBX! Debian ran all the time and I booted Whichever version of Windows as needed, which wasn't that often as I'd use the Ubuntu desktop for most things! I had docker for only UNMS and Tautulli. Plex, UNIFI etc were installed directly into the OS. Also had Ubuntu configured as a TimeMachine! All worked fine certainly no out of memory errors! There were annoyances mostly running out of disk space for media etc. The machine had an i3 and 8GB RAM at the time, I upgraded the CPU to an i7 and added another 8GB RAM when I upgraded to Unraid. Which is why I started this thread and am fed up with the memory issues being as I doubled the amount! Yes Windows 10 VM is the main issue, I couldn't get Windows 7 to install with GPU pass through. But have got XP to install and works fine, although haven't tried GPU pass through as my graphics card is too new for XP! Yes, I've tried everything suggested and thought I was getting somewhere until the random system crash on Sunday! It was strange as it's fine today and I've been experimenting and added back one by one my pass-throughs all still ok so a bit puzzled now! Cheers, Tim
