Virtual Machine PCI passthrough

Post by YISH313z » Sun Dec 07, 2014 3:14 pm

Is it now possible to pass PCI hardware to Virtual Machines? And if so can this be used with Scope?

it should work as it works with usb audio cards, but i have not tested it, so if you'll do some test, let us know.

You need the right hardware...support of IOMMU or (Intel) Vt-d is what it is called. Then, the right Virtual Machine that can make use of it (if it supports it)!
