  1. As an aside, 6.8.0 rc5 with this kernel has been rock solid. I'm at 84 days uptime as I type, I use this machine as my daily driver (win10 gaming vm w/ 5700xt) with 10+ docker containers running (plex server and more). I'm still holding off updating until there is a 6.9 release candidate.
  2. What temp readings are you referring to? There are no issues with unraid and hot cpu temps on these boards.
  3. You won't be able to pass the 2 usb controllers to different vms since they are in the same iommu group. That is a great use for your extra pcie slot, a usb card. You can pass both internal usb controllers to windows and a pcie usb card to mac, for example. And you don't need multiple nics for what you are describing. By default VMs use a virtual bridge to communicate directly with the physical Ethernet port. Unraid and all your VMs can use the same NIC.
  4. They pulled the navi patch (v1, Limetech never bundled patch v2) because it didn't work or caused more issues with certain hardware configurations. The navi patch itself should do absolutely nothing if you don't have an applicable card, it simply hard codes a special behavior, or quirk, only for a matching pci device. There are tons of these quirks for different pci devices bundled into the linux kernel. Sorry, though, I haven't tested nvidia gpu passthough.
  5. I call bull on that CSR saying they don't have any cases that hold more than 2 drives. The Define R6 is a very popular one that can hold 11 drives (with extra caddies sold by Fractal): It's not my area, by the Nvidia Quadro p2000 is very popular as a dedicated transcoding card. If you only needs are NAS + Plex, a p2000 matched with pretty much any other hardware
  6. I am all UEFI, no legacy. It might come down to your GPU and which mode(s) it supports, if you are talking about an older card.
  7. I second this. I'm sure there are a LOT of us still on 6.8-RCx for one reason or another. I thought releasing 6.9RC series at the same time as 6.8 stable was a great plan, but it's almost 2 months later.
  8. Dollars to donuts its the nvram file. The only difference between the 2 is the uuid and path to vdisk, yes? Create a new VM. Use Win10 template, change nothing except uncheck start after creation. Edit new VM, go to XML view. Paste everything from your User1 xml except preserve to new uuid including the new nvram path. Change the path to your User2 vdisk. To @testdasi's point, do reboot your system and try booting the problematic vm first. Doesn't sound like the reset bug, though. I've had similar problems and creating a new identical VM always fixes it. Somehow somethi
  9. I can't say for certain. I required "video=efifb:off" even with a single nvidia card on my setup. I use two GPUs now, and only pass my non-primary GPU so it's no longer needed for my setup.
  10. If I follow correctly when you start the win10 vm the monitor output doesn't change from unraid. It sounds like vfio is having trouble grabbing control of the gpu from unraid. Add "video=efifb:off" as a boot flag to your syslinux.cfg. This will disable the framebuffer in unraid making the gpu fully available. This will disable video output after the bootloader screen, so no gui, you will need to launch your vm from the webgui on another machine. If you want to be able to use GUI mode I believe you will need 2 gpus. The gui mode is only recommended for fixing networking
  11. Whats your issue, specifically? Does your MacOS VM work, just looking for a vega reset fix? I've had no luck getting my 5700 XT working (at all, not reset related) in Catalina despite it having native bare metal support. AMD Mac OS is it's own can of worms I haven't tackled (yet).
