Xcp-ng questions

I’m new to xcp-ng so I have some money to spend on a system about a $1.5k. Now I want to buy a ryzen 3900x 64gb of ram and a basic gpu (gt 710) just for troubleshooting and initial installation. Now my questions are as follows.

  1. If I want to boot windows from my xcp-ng server over the webui do I need a gpu? Since the chip doesn’t even have igpu?
  2. What issues will I face (hardware combination wise) with this setup? Will it even work?
    Note: this system will be used for basic os testing and playing with internal networking between mostly linux vm’s and one or two windows vm’s.

Thank you :blush:

I did some testing (nothing extensive) with a Ryzen 3900x https://youtu.be/SRUQfoXFAc4 and it did not seem to have any issues. I would check up on their forums about issues with that CPU. https://xcp-ng.org/forum/

Thank you for responding :’).
What about the Windows thing? Will a windows vm run on 3900x through the webui without a graphics card? (Installed but not passed through)

XCP-NG installs a basic VGA that should work well enough.
