  1. Nasty patches? It's a few prebuilt binaries and prebuilt ovmf file. If someone can't edit their own xml file I wouldn't suggest they use a test verion of unraid.
  2. You need to add the tpm to your xml and start the vm for the first time for the files to be created. If you get "Could not run '/usr/bin/swtpm_setup'" error starting the vm, for fix is in this post above (chmod to fix permissions):
  3. The swtpm module is not installed. You need to download the .txz files, put them in /boot/extra, and reboot. The tzx files in /boot/extra get installed at boot time so the binaries aren't installed until reboot.
  4. TYVM. Retail ISO is out, just updated my win10 vm to win11 final no problem after getting TPM emulation working per the guide. I'm on Unraid 6.9.1.
  5. I was avoiding upgrading because I run a custom kernel and I didn't want to be bothered getting everything working again until there was a worthy stable update. I just made the plunge to 6.9.1, took most of the day to get everything working again. This is running a 5700 XT as my gaming gpu which also has the reset bug. The navi reset kernel patch worked great for me. Just upgraded to 6.9.1 and trying out gnif/vendor-reset via ich777's kernel helper container. So far so good and much easier than building the kernel "by hand"!
  6. Any other members? I haven't been active much because I haven't had to tinker. It just... works. Used as my file server, Plex server, and primary Win10 Gaming VM.
  7. 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.
  8. What temp readings are you referring to? There are no issues with unraid and hot cpu temps on these boards.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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 will do the trick. Keep in mind you will need to use the Unraid Nvidia plugin/builds:
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
