  1. I've found Unraid about 6th months ago and enjoying every minute of it over VMware. VMware support for passthrough devices are 50/50 and a lot of the time is doesn't work. Since I can passthrough all devices through in Unraid I have been able on one system to run four gaming system on it and on another make big nas server and running video and storing much data. The only thing that could be added is better driver compatibility with network card like 10Gigibits.
  2. Any thoughts if you update the unraid software to the next latest one, is there a way to revert back if something goes wrong or if you find more issues in the new version? I haven't found anything but I could be looking in the wrong place to find the answer.
  3. Good knowledge all around. So fare I haven't had issues adding to many cores or less when assigning them to windows os but yes you may never know. The GPU issue not solved but workaround was using the original software that came in the package vers the latest one online. For now I'm able to play all my games with my new GPU. I'll keeping looking into why the new GPU software isn't working out. As for the usb issue, I was thinking about getting adaptors instead because it is true that all of mine are combined into one identifier vers separate. Overall it looks like I am having little better luck with unraid version 6.6.7 with thread ripper then the newer version.
  4. Great comments. Here are some few updates after playing with it for almost a month. Yes, the bios I'm running is the original that came with the package and didn't touch it until I understood if more than one issue showed up before updating the firmware (It's said don't fix if it an't broken). I am reviewing further updated firmware and see how fare I should go. On issue 1, I found that going back to version 6.6.7 got me to be able to reboot windows without for restart unraid every time. It looks like it could be a unraid version problem after trying 6.7.0, 6.7.1 and 6.7.2. As for GPU issue, I also found that using 6.6.7 helped out so adding AMD card to windows finally worked but only when using the drive coming from the cd from the package. If I update the software to the lasted from online it crashes again and window no longer boots. I will differently look into the diagnosis utility and see what I can come up with. Thanks
  5. Finished building new system week ago or so and was going to run VMware 6.7 but heard about unraid and the extra things I can do with it. I would like to get two gaming machines (with separate GPUs), one windows server 2019 for all the admin stuff and add-on Plex media system to run all my videos (in/out of the home). After playing with the unraid os for four days I can into few issues. Any VM made that wasn't connected to pcie's or usb external parts and using VNC works smoothly. Once I start adding GPU, keyboard, mouse components, things start to not work correctly. 1. If I connect GPU to VM and run to install win10pro, everything works fine until the system needs to restart in order to finish its installation but after it reboots nothing shows up (no input from monitor/no keyboard/mouse input), so I have to restart the unraid system before I can get it to run again. 1a. Once I can get window fully installed in updated, the install for the GPU its 40% load (screen should change to allow for the gnu it take effect and the show again) but freezes and nothing more happens. Even with full system restart, windows will no longer boot back up. Tried with many windows OSs and still nothing. 2. I have wireless keyboard/mouse but after connecting to VM more then once I can no longer keep the devices lined to that VM. 3. When selecting on any VM made it shows things to select on (stop/start/restart), except for force-stop and start no of the other functions work. Does this happen for anyone else. Note: Unraid Ver: 6.7.2 No Bios change All Flash system (no HDD) I'd really like to purchase this software if I can get my issues solved Here is my system setup Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty X399 CPU: AMD 1st Gen RYZEN Threadripper 1950X GPU: ASRock Phantom Gaming X Radeon RX Vega 56 GPU: Radeon HD 5770 (x2 crossfire) GPU: Radeon (for unraid only) Memory: G.Skill 64GB SSD: M.2 2280 1TB PCIe Gen3 x4 NVMe 1.3 (x3) SSD: WD 500GB
