Change i440FX to Q35?

Post by Nexusband » Thu Jun 06, 2019 3:37 pm


We recently got a TS-877XU-RP. It is running the Build of QTS, Virtualization Station is the most recent one.
As far as i can gather, the "foundation" for all of this is QEMU/KVM. We have a few Proxmox Servers, so i'm not that unfamilliar with QEMU/KVM.
However, Virtualization Station is...odd.

I've managed to get TianoCore/UEFI working, via some trickery with VirtualBox. However, i've set ICH9/Q35 in VirtualBox as Chipset. This is ignored and switched back to i440FX. Is there a reason why VS does not support Q35?
I would like to use SecureBoot as well, but there is no GUI way to change the settings. Where are the config files for the machines at?
