Passthrough of a SATA controller. I can’t get past the “Enabled / Needs reboot”

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” ?

Thanks
