RobJ Posted November 4, 2016 Share Posted November 4, 2016 This TOC is broken, at least for now. See the "repaired" TOC here: https://forums.unraid.net/topic/51703-vm-faq/?tab=comments#comment-557627 Something seems to have broken the links that were imported from the old forum software. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ This thread is reserved for Frequently Asked Questions, concerning everything that's VM related on unRAID, their setup, operation, management, and troubleshooting. Please do not ask for support here, such requests and anything off-topic will be deleted or moved, probably to the VM FAQ feedback topic. If you wish to comment on the current FAQ posts, or have suggestions or requests for the FAQ, please put them in the VM FAQ feedback topic. Thank you! Note: there are lots of graphics, allow your browser extra time! Each page may jump around some as it loads. Getting Started How do I get started using unRAID VMs? I don't have onboard graphics. Can I pass through my GPU in the primary slot 1? I want to install Windows 10 on unRAID - how do I start? Is there anything I should do post install? How do I pass through a USB controller so i can hotswap in my VM? How can I pass through a physical Network controller to a VM? Ok, I have made a few VMs but how do I back them up? General Questions What kind of performance can I expect from a VM? Can I convert my existing physical computer to an unRAID VM? Can I convert my VMWare virtual machine to run on unRAID? There is not a template for OS X. Can I create an OS X VM? I have a VM with custom XML edits. Is there a way to use the GUI to make changes without losing the custom edits? How do I create a vdisk snapshot on a BTRFS device? Maintenance and Troubleshooting While installing a Windows 7 VM I'm getting stuck at the "Starting Windows" screen? Why can't I update my Windows 10 VM? Why can't I get a network connection in my VM? Why am I getting the wrong IP in my VM? I passed through my graphics card to a VM but now I can't see the unRAID console on my monitor. Why is this? Why are some of the menus in the "Nvidia control panel" missing? unRAID FAQ's and Guides - * Guides and Videos - comprehensive collection of all unRAID guides (please let us know if you find one that's missing) * FAQ for unRAID v6 on the forums, general NAS questions, not for Dockers or VM's * FAQ for unRAID v6 on the unRAID wiki - it has a tremendous amount of information, questions and answers about unRAID. It's being updated for v6, but much is still only for v4 and v5. * Docker FAQ - concerning all things Docker, their setup, operation, management, and troubleshooting * FAQ for binhex Docker containers - some of the questions and answers are of general interest, not just for binhex containers * VM FAQ - a FAQ for VM's and all virtualization issues Know of a question that ought to be here? Please suggest it in the VM FAQ feedback topic. ------------------------------------------------------- Suggested format for FAQ entries - clearly shape the issue as a question or as a statement of the problem to solve, then fully answer it below, including any appropriate links to related info or videos. Optionally, set the subject heading to be appropriate, perhaps the question itself. While a moderator could cut and paste a FAQ entry here, only another moderator could edit it. It's best therefore if only knowledgeable and experienced users create the FAQ posts, so they can be the ones to edit it later, as needed. Later, the author may want to add new info to the post, or add links to new and helpful info. And the post may need to be modified if a new unRAID release changes the behavior being discussed. Moderators: please feel free to edit this post. 1 Quote Link to comment
