I’m trying to enable passthrough of a SATA controller. I can’t get past the “Enabled / Needs reboot” state. I have an NVMe PCIe card which is passed through to the guest successfully so the bios is set to permit virtualization.
Running VMware ESXi 7.0.0 build 16324942
ASRock x570m-pro AMD motherboard
Booting ESXi off USB drive
ESXi appears to have correctly added the device /etc/vmware/passthru.map :
`[root@x:/etc/vmware] grep vmhba0 *`
`esx.conf:/vmkdevmgr/pci/p0000:08:00.0/alias = “vmhba0″`
`esx.conf:/vmkdevmgr/logical/pci#p0000:08:00.0#0/alias = “vmhba0″`
`[root@x:/etc/vmware] tail -n 2 passthru.map`
`# AMD FCH SATA Controller [AHCI mode]`
`1022 7901 d3d0 default`
Should I be able to add the SATA controller to the guest VM using “add other device” ?
