GPU Pass-through on 6.7u3 – Error 43

Has anyone had any luck with passing though an NVIDIA GPU as of late?

I had a 1060 laying around and decided to throw it in one of my ESXi servers for pass-through to a Win10 VM. I added the much suggested `hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = “FALSE”` to the VMX file and everything worked perfectly for about a month.

At some point my VM crashed and since then I’ve been stuck with getting the Error Code 43 as if NVIDIA is somehow detecting the virtual environment.

This is just a home lab getting a Quadro isn’t really a possibility.

  1. Can only tell you that the passtrough of my rx 480 works without problems.
    But since you can boot up into the vm and get the output, maybe you can try older drivers?

  2. I’ve never been able to get my gtx1070 passed through.. wound up giving up and just sold it on ebay. AMD cards seem to be a better bet for gpu passthrough
