Hello people

I had the best working two rx480 in a vm win 10 pro, but after the update of proxmox I get that error, someone will have some idea of how to solve it?

Here is my thread how I did get it to work. (substitude the amd stuff with intel if appropriate)
Configs are postet in the thread, no vbios used.
For me also seems to work, GPU passthrough tutorial/reference, excepting the case when the host refuse to boot completely when it seems to enter into an infinite loop.

Edit:
1.
If i boot the host with the monitor connected to GPU, even if the screen looks like in the picture and a small cursor is blinking in the left bottom corner, the system is completely booted.
The VM is working when is started and the monitor goes black when i shut down the VM.
This behavior made me think that the host didn't boot completely.
2.
If i boot the host with the monitor disconnected from GPU and later is reconnected back, the screen is black until the VM is started.
