  1. Hi there! Is there any feedback from limetech on "Multiple Array Pools"? Do they intend to implement this feature?
  2. I kind of found a solution: passing through the whole PCIe Device/IOMMU group which contains the USB Controller with mouse and keyboard. But in my eyes this is a dirty hack compared to the situation before where you were able to just pass through the USB devices. I really don't like that this way.
  3. Hello everybody. After my first steps with Unraid I started a new attempt and wanted to change my server from OMV to Unraid. Everything went smooth so far, also the first VM (Ubuntu 20.04) is running flawlessly on 6.9.0-beta24, even with GPU passthrough and mouse and keyboard attached to the server. It is also no problem to install Windows 10 to a VM using VNC. BUT: when passing through the GPU to a new Windows 10 VM, there is no mouse and keyboard upon installation and I am stuck at the first screen where you can choose the language. I tried several combinations of i440/q35 and ovmf/seabios but none is working so far. I also used different USB ports also without success. What is going on? Please help! This was never an issue with unraid 😞 Hardware: Ryzen 7 1800x X370 Crosshair VI Hero 16GB (32GB soon) AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB a bunch of HDDs and SSDs. Edit: strange behaviour. I connected another set of mouse and keyboard and when I pass through both mice and keyboards, one of each works. But not for long, the VM freezes sooner or later 😪 Is there anything I can try?
  4. Hi @ghost82 Is there any way to find out, if the kexts are loaded? I set this option to "yes". The GPU is not working I tried all ports: DVI, DP, HDMI -> no signal and the display of "NoMachine" (kind of VNC-Software) remains white. I can't do anything with the VM when I put the GPU in the VM config 😕
  5. Seems outdated: "This page was last modified on 18 April 2018, at 14:17." Unraid uses the Linux kernel which is compatible to AM4 mainboards. My X470 mb works without any problems.
  6. I think you won't get a good experience with 2 gaming VMs on the 7700k. This CPU has not enough cores to achieve that.
  7. Any AM4 mb with 6 SATA Ports should be compatible.
  8. Have a look at this: http://www.chenbro.com/en-global/products/Storage_Expansion_Kit/Hot-Swap_HDD_Enclosure/SK33502
  9. Hey! I successfully installed Catalina with Macinabox, no problems whatsoever. Fantastic job @SpaceInvaderOne 👍 Now I want to passthrough an AMD HD 7850 to this VM but I am stuck with no signal to the monitor. Yes, I changed the xml after inserting the GPU, I also used a custom rom from Techpowerup as the card sits in the first slot. I really have no clue what to do I am complete noob regarding this stuff. My first attempt was to put "verde.kext" in the clover folder. Do I have to activate this kext? How? Or is it enough to put it in the folder? Then I added "-raddvi" to the boot arguments in clover. But still no signal from any port: DVI, HDMI, DP. Is there a chance to get this card working or is this GPU just too old for catalina?
  10. I think I solved the issue. Steps I have taken: Disabling Spectre, Meltdown and Zombieload (MDS) mitigations both in Unraid an the Win 10 VM (Inspectre). Set CPU Scaling Governor in Unraid to "on demand". Isolate Cores 0, 12 for Unraid. CPU Settings: <vcpu placement='static'>16</vcpu> <cputune> <vcpupin vcpu='0' cpuset='4'/> <vcpupin vcpu='1' cpuset='16'/> <vcpupin vcpu='2' cpuset='5'/> <vcpupin vcpu='3' cpuset='17'/> <vcpupin vcpu='4' cpuset='6'/> <vcpupin vcpu='5' cpuset='18'/> <vcpupin vcpu='6' cpuset='7'/> <vcpupin vcpu='7' cpuset='19'/> <vcpupin vcpu='8' cpuset='8'/> <vcpupin vcpu='9' cpuset='20'/> <vcpupin vcpu='10' cpuset='9'/> <vcpupin vcpu='11' cpuset='21'/> <vcpupin vcpu='12' cpuset='10'/> <vcpupin vcpu='13' cpuset='22'/> <vcpupin vcpu='14' cpuset='11'/> <vcpupin vcpu='15' cpuset='23'/> <emulatorpin cpuset='1'/> </cputune> Activate Hyper-V (which was disabled bc of Error 43) <hyperv> <relaxed state='on'/> <vapic state='on'/> <spinlocks state='on' retries='8191'/> <vpindex state='on'/> <synic state='on'/> <stimer state='on'/> <vendor_id state='on' value='123456789ab'/> </hyperv> <kvm> <hidden state='on'/> </kvm> More CPU Settings: <cpu mode='host-passthrough' check='none'> <topology sockets='1' cores='8' threads='2'/> <cache mode='passthrough'/> <feature policy='require' name='topoext'/> <feature policy='disable' name='monitor'/> <feature policy='require' name='hypervisor'/> <feature policy='disable' name='svm'/> <feature policy='disable' name='x2apic'/> </cpu> In the VM I disabled uPNP. In the VM I installed Processlasso and set the energy plan to "Bitsum highest performance" In Processlasso I optimized settings for the GTA5 task (disable SMT etc.) Et voila: more than 46 min fps in the benchmark run reproducible also after reboot. And it doesn't matter if the VM has 6C12T, 8C16T or 9C/18T the performance in GTA5 is roughly the same. If I set the CPU Scaling Governor in Unraid to "performance" I will gain 2 min fps on average, which is negligible, better save some energy. Thanks to everybody your help is really appreciated! If you have any suggestions on how to maybe improve things further more just let me know!
  11. I am currently using unraid 6.8.0-rc7, newest Mobo BIOS with AGESA and virtio drivers from virtio-win-0.1.171.iso. As SSD I am using a partition with SATA. I looked at your xml @Skitals you are using so many devices, I don't think I can use this for my system. I really appreciate your help! Thanks a lot!
  12. Thank you @Skitals! I copied your CPU config but still no succes, singlethread performance is still low😞 Which results do you get with CPU-Z 1.91?
  13. This is interesting! Right now I am trying to understand the libvirt documentation, there is something called "cachetune"... Edit: cachetune is not supported 😕
  14. @JesterEE thanks a lot for the information. I implemented your hints but also without success. Multi thread performace is great single thread performance still sux. Here is the output of lstopo: @Skitals How do I use an uptodate kernel with Unraid? How do I install a new kernel?
