  1. Well I managed to get VM booting with VirtIO again. I needed to initialize my newly created disk in Windows Disk Management prior to switching the primary disk to use VirtIO. A quick file copy test shows sustained writes are still less than 100 MB/s. For some reason, Windows won't let me defragment the SSD. It says "Optimization not available" on its status. I'm pretty sure the XML is correct: <disk type='file' device='disk'> <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='writeback' discard='unmap'/> <source file='/mnt/disks/Crucial_CT525MX300SSD1_
  2. I will give this a try before trying to pass though the SSD. Although I was only using 50/500 GB I had available.
  3. I noticed I was getting poor SSD (Crucial MX300) write performance (about 100 MB/s or less) in my Windows 10 VM. The SSD was mounted using Unassigned Devices. I noticed Windows referred to the VirtIO drive as a SCSI device. So I tried changing "Primary vDisk Bus" to SATA to see if it would help. That didn't help, and it ended up causing other issues including stuttering/cracking audio. The MSI fix doesn't seem to work. Switching back to VirtIO doesn't allow Windows to boot. What performance should I expect from my SSD? Was my problem a VirtIO configuration issue? E
  4. Nice. It looks like that fixed it for me as well. I actually saw that MSI thread as well. But I couldn't figure out what he was trying to say so I quickly moved on lol.
  5. Sorry I haven't tried it. In the end I decided it made more economic sense to simply not allow the system to go to sleep while I'm on travel (the only time I would need WOL). Does anyone know the specific reason why it doesn't work?
  6. I ran another check and got 0 errors. So I will assume my hardware is good. Does 1 error = 1 wrong bit? How many errors would I normally expect to see from an unclean shutdown?
  7. I ran a parity check (write corrections enabled) and it resulted in more than 3 million errors. I don't believe I've ever had an unclean shutdown. I was having problems with VMs crashing, but that didn't result in a shutdown. I haven't seen any other errors. I have attached my diagnostics. What was the mostly likely cause? What should be my next course of action?
  8. Today (3 times) I've started experiencing seemingly random crashes while in my Windows 10 VM. The system would hard freeze (static image, no response to keyboard, sound freezes and outputs something like a buzzing sound) for about 5 seconds before attempting an automatic reboot. What ends happening is the system just goes to sleep. unRAID appears to be running fine after I wake the system backup. I've been running this VM without issue for about a month. I was thinking the issue might be GPU related, and updated the driver: no luck. Any ideas what might be the cause? Since unRAID i
  9. I have confirmed my BIOS settings are good. WOL is lumped into the wake by pcie device setting. I also disabled Erp for good measure
  10. Well I confirmed that I can get WOL working on Windows, but still can't get it working with unRAID. Is it a driver issue? I couldn't find any information confirming that my Realtek Chipset was known to not work. Where should I be looking for that kind of information?
  11. Thanks for the recommendation. I will buy that if nothing else works. I found some other potential solutions which I'll try first.
  12. I've been struggling to get Wake on LAN working for a few days now. Does anyone have any ideas? One potential issue I noticed is how I'm not getting any LED activity with the ethernet port while the system is asleep. I talked to a MSI rep and he had no idea if that was normal behavior or not. Edit: The activity lights remain off always when the system is asleep. Summary: 1) MOBO: MSI X470 Gaming Plus 2) Router is Netgear R6400 3) BIOS ErP set to Disabled 4) BIOS PCIe and USB Wake functions Enabled 5) unRAID 6.7.2 6) S3 Sleep, using S3 Sleep plugin along w
  13. That fixed it! I'm surprised this issue wasn't reported on until recently. What do think is the cause?
  14. The issue I'm having is exactly as you described above. Should these lines be applicable to all hardware configurations? #fix video for VM echo 0 > /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon0/bind echo 0 > /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon1/bind echo efi-framebuffer.0 > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/efi-framebuffer/unbind
  15. I dumped the BIOS myself and that still didn't work. But I did discover a work-around to my problem. If I boot up the system with no display attached, my board will leave the GPU unbound. I can then load up a VM without issue. Having to unplug my HDMI cable every time I reboot is not ideal. So any more suggestions will still be appreciated.
  16. I'm running a MSI X470 Gaming Plus with a 3600X. Is this fix necessary to get GPU pass through working in any capacity? I've tried ROM edit method for passing a Nvidia GPU, but had no luck. Tomorrow when my second GPU arrives, I will give that a try. *****EDIT****** I was able to get GPU pass though working on board without this fix. So anyone else using MSI, probably won't need them.
  17. Well I tried out those alternate kernal files, and still no luck. I'm still getting the same behavior. I will try adding a second GPU to see if I can get that working.
  18. Thanks for the suggestion. I was able to virtualization working using VNC. So I was thinking the virtualization bugs got fixed. I will try out the kernel later today.
  19. ***UPDATE 2*** See posts below for fix. Essentially the most obvious symptom of my particular issue was the VM not booting and the system log getting completely filled with a message like: vfio-pci 0000:65:00.0: BAR 1: can't reserve [mem 0x38bfe0000000-0x38bfefffffff 64bit pref] ***UPDATE*** I dumped the BIOS myself and that still didn't work.

  20. I apologize if I'm the 1000th person to ask about this. But none of the other posts I've seen has provided a solution yet. I just setup a computer with unRAID and I created a new Private SMB share. Windows just keeps giving denied messages no matter what I do. This video has been my reference I created a username and password as you normally would. I only have one share, so I know it's not the issue with accessing a public share first. I also attempted to access it on a couple different computers with no success. Any
