Hi everyone
I'm currently trying to setup a gaming windows 11 vm, but i have an error in the peripheral manager concerning my gpu.
I follow an entire tutorial to put my GTX 108TI into my Windows 11 vm to play on it using remote desktop or parsec.
The IOMMU is enabled, i setup the virtio drivers on windows and my gtx 1080ti show up in the peripheral manager but with a yellow ! and the error windows shut down this peripheral, installation need to continue. I install the nvidia drivers and geforce experience, but i can't launch the nvidia control panel.
Here my config (see picture)

First, in the Processor section, you only need to specify 'host.' Remove any other unnecessary parameters, including 'hidden=1.' In the Display section, set it to 'none.'

If your GPU doesn't have a physical monitor attached, you will need to create a virtual monitor that can render images using your GPU. You can achieve this by using dummy HDMI or software like 'IddSampleDriver'.
