Pci passthrough HBA Card


Mar 29, 2019
Hi All,

I want passthrough my second HBA to Vmware ESXI Guest but with any setup or option I was fail and I was see Vmware purple color :). I can passthrough to any Windows or Linux guest to that PCI HBA adaptor but Vmware not accept that.

Any idea ?

Hm - Sadly I don't have experience with running VMWare as a guest. Since noone reported anything - maybe try to ask VMWare - with the message from the PSOD they might be able to quickly tell you what the issue is!

Sorry that I can't be of more help
