Getting a windows 10 VM with high performance that i can easily replicate.

While i already had 20x vm's running smoothly on this maching using hyper-v i wanted to experiment with unraid as i see some benefits i can reap.


I have been trying to work with unraid now for over a week but have come to a halt (Eat, sleep, unraid, repeat). 

All the simular topics seem to get offtopic so quickly that it becomes un-related. 


Anyhow, The VM is performing terrible.

The VM and server both run smooth in regards of hardware, Everything runs <50%.


The performance in noticeable in feeling, mouse is choppy, Videos lag every other x second. Stuff responds slowly.


Once i boot into safe mode of windows 10 the vm performs well leaving me to think it is windows related? 

The VM also performs bad with VNC?



Is there anything that anyone can hint me to check follow up on?


The setup:

I guess there are 2 things I would change.
1) add the sound card part of your graphic card to the VM aswell.
2) I have heard passing through single USB devices can give problems, passing through an USB controller where the USB devices are connected would give more stability.

(just don't passthrough the USB controller where you have your unraid USB OS)
((don't know if they fixed some of these things, I started with Unraid 5.4 and haven't looked into this since I got it to work))
