    The process is not for the faint of heart but the CMOS battery can usually be removed to delete the User settings in the BIOS including the password but it involves doing some disassembly of the Notebook/Laptop to get to that battery. Always unplugged the charger and remove the battery first. It may be the usual CR2032 but have seen some that were 3 or 4 small batteries encapsulated with a wire plugged into the motherboard. Once the battery is removed let the machine set for several minutes then put it all back together.

    I might give it a go, thanks

    Got QEMU/KVM running on Ubuntu 20.04 (Focal Fossa). There the GUI controller is called virt-manager. A 19451 VM is running well.

    If the insider builds turn out to be that smooth, I might install it on my host machine!

    Just remember not to use it for "production" work. Although it's called a Preview, it's still Beta and can do you in at the worst time imaginable.

    Hi there

    well done !!

    Now ensure you have the win-virtio iso available for your VM - install the drivers (on the VM) and ensure you have the appropriate amd or intel KVM module loaded into the kernel (modprobe intel_kvm or modprobe intel_amd).

    modprobe kvm_intel nested=1

    change the network to use bridged (share device -->brxx where xx is the name of your bridge) and set the connection to use virtio). Install packages dhcp , bridge-tools and dhclient (also net-tools for the easier ifconfig command).

    Bridge does work also to wireless interfaces !!!

    To start the bridge create a .sh script file similar to this : (no need to stop and start any networks).

    ifconfig enp0s20f0u1u3 0.0.0.0 <name of the physical interface in my case the enp--- one-- can be a wifi one too>
    brctl addbr br0
    brctl addif br0 enp0s20f0u1u3
    dhclient br0
    ifconfig

    Make executable and after starting the HOST just as sudo enter ./<file_name>.sh -- you might have to wait for 10 - 15 secs while the dhclient gets the appropriate data !!!

    Now your bridge will work and all VM's should be able to see each other.

    Check that ONLY the bridge interface has a real LAN IP address --if both have one then there's something wrong. Also check that network is running at proper speed --test OOKLA or similar on BOTH the VM amd the HOST.

    e.g from within a W10 VM running on a laptop -- sees all 6 computers I'm testing on a LAN currently !!!

    Also on a laptop connected to an external monitor via HDMI the VM will use HDMI for the sound if you want (can also use internal speakers, headphones,blu tooth or the HDMI connection) -- set the HOST sound config

    e.g in my case for the laptop running as HOST

    Have fun !!! you should be able to get really good results !!!

    For bridged networking :

    (for the storage use the RAW and VIRTIO format -- at Windows install time have the win-virtio driver iso available and when Windows can't find a disk use the load driver box and point to your driver iso).

    The GUI BTW is called Virtual Machine Manager. Also a good package extra to install is libguestfs -- can do loads of things manipulating VM's ==P2V, V2V, V2P etc etc.

    No wonder people think I'm Bonkers -- all your fault for starting me off with arch linux --anyway we're never to old to learn !!!!

    cheers

    Actually, you got to Arch by yourself. I told you about Manjaro, which I suppose is the idiots Arch. What we really worked on together was the mess with RAID 0 after an unfortunate kernel misadventure which you inform me has been corrected in later versions. I however was less patient than you and trashed my RAID 0 in Linux in order to recreate it in Windows. There are one or two VMs I miss but on the whole I'm happy I switched because I looking forward to at least a technical preview of VMware on HYPER-V. Now I am worried though that VMware may price it out of range - nonetheless I figure I can give the technical preview enough of a workout to see if I can justify it. Who knows? Maybe someday libvirt will be ported to Windows. In fact I've just downloaded virt-viewer-x64-8.0.msi form the office Virtual Machine Manager site to ny Windows Transfer partition and well see what that does.
    ........................................................
    Actually it is a remote viewer. Theoretically, I might install it on my wife's machine and be able to connect to one of QEMU/KVM machines but the negotitations might prove touchy. I'll save that for another day. You however could try it if you have a spare Windows machine

    I suppose anyone can use any Distro they please. Manjaro is not an idiots Arch. Look at Distrowatch. I currently use PCLinuxOS , Mint, Parrot, & for kicks Robolinux. I was going to try BlackArch but not with a 14Gb Download.
