Hi, I have a problem using SSDs for my gaming VM.
The device-names are changing after some reboots. I am not sure why UDEV does this, I didn’t change a thing.
I use most of my SSDs to play Windows games (w/ GPU passthrough), and at some point the device-names are changing and I can’t access the games any more. This can take up to several weeks/reboots, or it happens after first try. ATM I reinstalled my Windows Gaming VM over six times, but it seems like I am hunted.
Example of today …
/dev/sdc is my windows system on. It includes four partitions.
/dev/sdb has one partition and has some games installed.
/dev/sdd is the same as sdb.
Example of last night …
/dev/sdb is my windows system on (incl. four part.)
/dev/sdc and /dev/sdd have one partition each and some games on it.
The Windows VM shows me the content of the previous installed games on an other SSD, and I cant access it at all, and the trash folder got corrupted always.
I don’t think this can be a hardware bug, cause I bought three new SSDs (from different locations) and all my four SSDs have the same problem.
When I was writing my QEMU script this problem came up once a month or so, but yesterday I tried virt-manager and since then this was happening three times already.
I assume it has some to do with Windows writing some crap into the MBR.
I cant use any labels or UUIDs to point to the devices, cause I need the hole SSDs and not single partitions.
Any advice ?
What additional info you will need to make my problem clear ?
