    Advice for remote gaming rig

    Hiya, I´m considering building a new box with the intention of being able to host one or two VM's that'll run games over parsec, with GPU-resources shared/assigned per VM. I'll probably want to run a few other VM's alongside these, but nothing that requires GPU. The box will be hosted close by...

    ESXi 6.7 on Ryzen x399 for VMs + GPU passthrough desktop

    Hey, tl;dr, I'm thinking of migrating my homelab from a handful of Sandy and Ivy Bridge E3s and Core i5/i7s to a single Ryzen ESXi Windows desktop (GPU passthrough) / FreeBSD file server (since Ryzen supports ECC) and a trio of old Thinkpads T520s to save power but still have high availability...

    ESXi 6.7 can't change settings, don't survive reboot (passthrough issues, too!)

    Fun times Noticing none of the settings in an ESXi 6.7 installation are surviving reboot. I created the USB with a stock installation ISO like always, downloaded from the VMWare website. Just used the USB key like a normal drive. Have been doing this for several years now. Been using ESXi...

    USB controller Pass-through Supermicro X11SSH-LN4F ESXI 6.5

    So I've literally had this problem for like a year. I just absolutely cannot get the onboard USB controller for this Supermicro X11SSH-LN4F to show up in ESXI as a pass-through option. It just doesn't appear in the list of pass-through hardware. I own a number of other Supermicro X11 boards and...

    ESXI 6(.5) - OSX with GPU Passthrough

    So I have been unable to get this to work at all. I'm using a vanilla unmodified macOS Sierra install on a Dell T3500 workstation. I've tried with both 6.0 and 6.5 with the same results.

    Planning a multiseat, virtualized workstation

    With AMD's Zen around the corner, I am getting ideas about what I might do with a crazy number of CPU cores. I am looking to build a computer for use as a multi-seat workstation. I would like to have my host be some very stripped down OS (as close to "bare metal" as possible), and exclusively do...
