The best way to install and setup a windows 10 vm as a daily driver or a Gaming VM

Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

This is the first part of a two-part video about setting up a Windows 10 KVM VM in unRAID.
The first part deals with setting up the VM then the second part passing through hardware
to turn it into a gaming VM. Please, if you can, support the channel and donate

The first part of these videos you will learn how to:

1. Download a windows 10 iso.

2. Where to Buy a license for windows 10 pro…


  1. Wow what other things can unraid do? How would I output the Windows 10 vm to a monitor instead of a remote desktop? Is there a benefit to unraid why not just install Windows and be done?

  2. Great videos! Gone thru this video a few times, now taking some notes. When would the "Hyper-V" parameter used? only when you want to run another VM inside your VM? Why would that be enabled by default?

  3. I have only bought UNRAID a few weeks ago and I find your videos very useful. So far the only video that did not seem to work in the one for High Sierra where (like others) the VM seems to boot and then reboot after starting with the install. Cheers and THANK YOU!

  4. Great video, it will help a lot. Question, can I access the VM from the same machine that unraid is installed on? I have a keyboard, mouse , video, and sound on my unraid box and want to access the VM from the same machine.

  5. Thank you for all your tutorials! After completing this one, I now have a sound driver on my Windows 10 VM. The challenge is that I can see it working in the VM, but it does not pass though the sound to my PC?

  6. Great video!!! I was bound but now am free. I have now purchase a key for Unraid after 3 years of Amahi re-installs, crashes, dead drives,, etc…I have watched 9 of your video's now and look forward to watching many more and following your exceptional tutorials. Thanks.

  7. Nice.  As a beginner, trying to find some starter VM help, this is the one.

    Where can I get more help on this topic?  Such as do I create multiple VMs for each user or use one VM for all users, how to boot to the VMs I create

  8. Nice.  As a beginner, trying to find some starter VM help, this is the one.

    I would like to setup Win 10 VMs for my family to use instead of their own OS on their laptops.  Would I setup one Win VM and connect all to that, or would I need to create multiple VMs for each person?

  9. In some videos, it looks like you have an unassigned drive, that I thought was being used for VM. Is this what its used for? If so, do you have a video how to do so? I was going to get an SSD to place outside the array for VMs if I could get it to work.

  10. Thanks for these videos, very interesting so I have subscribed.
    Can you tell me if you can reuse threads when creating a VM? For example if I had 4 threads, 2 (cpu 0 and cpu 2) are being used by UnRAID and 2 (cpu 1 and cpu 3) I could use for a Windows VM, could I use cpu 1 and cpu 3 again for say, a Linux VM? If so, is it possible to run the VMs at the same time (perhaps over-provisioned) or would I have to turn off the Windows VM to use the Linux VM?
    Purely theoretical at the moment, looking into which CPU to buy – a more powerful, lower thread CPU or a multi-core Xeon.

  11. Thanks for the tutorial. Once Question How do i passthrough my on-board audio? Because i cannot use HDMI Audio since my monitor doesn't support it. Have both vm instances up and they are working fine. No Issue right now. GPU Drivers are downloaded and installed. Any Help?
