Install Win10 x64 via Virtual Machine Manager v2.3.0-8722

Hello there.

 

I am trying to install Windows 10 x64 via Virtual Machine Manager v2.3.0-8722 (latest). I create the VM, the installation image starts, I can set-up the needed steps to select locale, disk location and copy Windows files, but after the "Finishing up" bla, bla and restart, I get the attached screen in the noVNC browser window. And that's all, no progress. In VMM, it appears "Running", but 0 CPU usage and no IP. If I refresh the page, it returns the "Failed to connect to server" red overlay  in the upper part, and no image.

 

I even tried a Kali image and on both "Install" and "Live run" I get errors (see the second attached screenshot).

 

I must mention that I am using the latest loader, running on DS3615xs with DSM 6.1.6-15266 Update 1. The machine is a HP XW4600 workstation.

 

Please help me out, any ideas are welcome.

 

Thank you in advance,

a7r

Heya. Unfortunately I haven't found a solution yet, It's becoming really annoying. I haven't tried a XP version of Windows, just 10. What hardware set-up do you have? Same HP workstation? I'm thinking that the problem comes from the BIOS or other backround thingy, even though I altered all the possible settings I have found related to virtualization and no go.

As per above now solved 

 

Update vm manager to latest version change bios setting to uefi and re install windows 10 

No longer hangs at booting from disk ...

Yeah, tested it and now it boots fine. Thank you again for the tip.

 

I see they've made some changes, including the adding of UEFI option and an open-source BIOS, so I think there were some issues on the original track.

One problem though - the Windows 10 (x64) 1803 VM is really slow, topping at 90-100 % CPU load almost anytime. From the booting process to the OS GUI, everything is really choked (even when I passed through the OS installation process). Tried with 2 procs, 4 procs, 2, 4 and 6 gigs of RAM. The RAM consumption iseems to be in the normal threshold, but the CPU is/looks overloaded.

Do you have any ideas of what might be done in order for the VM to run in normal conditions? Does it happens to anyone else? Thank you in advance.

Sorry, but i need some help to install Windows on Virtual Machine Manager. The last version. I'm DSM 6.1.4 on a DL380 Gen 6.

I choose Uefi, SATA. I cen install it but on reboot, i 'm either on "booting from hard disk" either, after change bios to uefi, i boot on shell and i can't do anything.

 

Can you help me please?

I also get the same error when installing win 10 Pro.
- If BIOS is selected: UEFI ==> Windows Boot Manager error message.
- If choosing BIOS: Legacy BIOS => blue screen error
But when I installed win 7, it still works (I choose BIOS - if UEFI option is selected, it will hang in boot screen). Anyone with experience in handling this error please comment.
Thanks.

Main: Asus Q170T
CPU: 6700T ES

Hi everyone.


I have installed xpenology on a baremetal PC.

The DSM version is 6.1.7 update 3.

And I have installed the latest version of Virtual Machine manager (v2.3.5 -9030).

 

I'm trying to install Windows 7 and after making the first installation, the machine freezes on the below screen:

Does anyone have found a solution to this issue?

Please help!!!

Why no more wasn't it strong enough

 

In fact it was strong (Q6600 and 8 GB of RAM), but I managed to aquire an I5 (4th generation) with the same amount of RAM tower and I wanted to use the latest DSM available and the Haswell set-up gave me this opportunity.

What loader 1.04b on the xw4600?

 

1.04b is only 918+ and accourding to the cpu support its to old for this type (4th gen intel, haswell minimum)

dsm 6.2.2 is also available for 3615/17 so even a older system can run the "latest" dsm

when it comes to m.2 nvme and hardware transcoding of videos then 918+ will be the choice, 918+ also has a newer kernel but you will not recognise it for now when it comes to driver support

Can dsm 918 have more than four drives? The real thing onlys has 4

The real thing can take up to 9 drives with the 5 drive expansion bay... but like IG-88 said, in XPenology that limit can be overcome by editing a config file.
