VM creation error

Recommended Posts

Hi Photo,

 

Can you please include your system diagnostics?  These can be obtained from the Tools > Diagnostics page.  Also if you could edit your VM in XML Edit mode and copy / paste your XML here, that would be great.

I was asking for the full diagnostics file, but as a quick test, can you try starting the VM with no USB devices assigned?

I think the issue is the USB mouse you are trying to assign.  It has a vendor ID that starts with four zeros and libvirt apparently doesn't like that very much.  Please try using a different USB mouse and see if that works for you.

Woow great pal. Its working without the mouse and Keyboard attached :D Fantastic But is it the problem with this particular mouse or any mouse might bring me here ?
It is a brand new cheap intex mouse. I think its made in india? I dono. But that has made a pass after leaving the keyboard and mouse unchecked.

Hi again,

 

In the future, when we ask for diagnostics, it is best to just attach the entire zip file.  I think your mouse is the issue.  If you can try a different one I bet it would work just fine (different make / model).

Needed some added info here. Should i start that as a separate thread?
After installing ubuntu, The monitor is still in the Unraid not switching to the ubuntu OS. How do i change it? It is the only monitor attached to the device.

You need to pass through a GPU if you wish to see graphics appear on the monitor like that. Otherwise you can use VNC to connect to your VM(s).

thank u that helped. I ll search for a low grade graphic card to make that Happen. 
1.And for my i3 540 there are 4 cores 2 of them are the real ones i guess. How many cores should i allocate for NAS and how many for the VM? My NAS is the main usage of the PC here but with additional VMs can benefit to do some card copying stuff in the studio.
2. Also if I am copying a file in VM to the user shares created in NAS will they be sent through the network or copied directly to the Hard disc?

The i3 likely does not support GPU pass through.  See the hardware requirements page for more information on what is required for doing this (its under our support menu on the main website).

The motherboard DH55TC and processor does have virtualization and Vt-d options and its been enabled too. 

So are you saying that pass through doesn't work as if how am i supposed to connect a monitor or its not gonna work out  Anyway? 

No use of VM in the machine?

I do not see VT-d listed on that processor spec sheet, only VT-x.

Here's your problem:

So your hardware does NOT support VT-d / IOMMU according to Intel's own spec sheets.  If you click "Info" on the webGui (in the top right), does it say IOMMU enabled or disabled?

I think you are Right. It says IOMMU disabled :/ 
So its a no ? I can't run VM here ?

You can run a VM, but you cannot pass through any PCIe devices (including graphics cards) because your hardware doesn't support it.

I'm very interested to see a photo of the BIOS settings you reference here.  Very clearly in their product documentation it says there is no support for VT-d.  If it shows up on the motherboard BIOS settings though and you can enable it, it should work.

May be I have mis-read VT-x as VT-d. My bad. 
Thanks a lot for checking pal. It really helped i should look for a better board now. :/  Thanks a lot.
