  1. Oh mine has that too - it's plugged into one of the USB headers on the mobo. I'm also passing through an entire USB controller from my mobo to the VM. I did try not passing through the USB controller and that didn't help though. Also passing through the USB controller without the card works fine. So it's just passing through the card itself that is causing issues for some reason...
  2. The only kext I have installed is one for my Ethernet which I am also passing through. IntelMausiEthernet.kext. Removing that doesn't fix the issue though, it's isolated to the WiFi card. If I don't pass through the WiFi card, the system goes back to shutting down normally. I tried booting macOS in verbose mode to catch any errors on the shutdown process, or to see if it was hanging there, but doesn't seem to be - it goes to a full black screen and the monitor signal goes to off. I don't know if there's anything different I can try with how I'm attaching the PCI device to the VM that could fix it possibly.
  3. No additional kext, this card just works out of the box in macOS.
  4. Is anyone using a WiFi card with their macOS VM? I have this passed through: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07VCCZS54/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 It's a BCM94360CD, so works OOB in macOS. Handoff and continuity features are working with it installed. My only issue is, the card prevents a clean shutdown of the VM. macOS appears to shut down fine but the VM hangs on "Shutting down" and there are no error messages in dmesg. Just wondering if anyone experienced the same and knew of a way of fix it. Not a huge deal, I can live with having to hard shut down the VM every so often but obviously this risks some corruption of the disk. Reboots work fine however.
  5. yeah, I'm on Threadripper as well. Wondering if that has anything to do with it. There is a review on Amazon that said this worked perfectly with KVM, but not sure on his specs - asked him for more details. https://www.amazon.com/Sonnet-Allegro-Pro-PCIe-card/product-reviews/B00XPUHO10/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_viewopt_kywd?ie=UTF8&reviewerType=all_reviews&pageNumber=1&filterByKeyword=passthrough
  6. Having the same issue! Did you ever get this resolved? I can only pass through one of the controllers, even though they are all on separate IOMMU groups. Passing through more than one gives me the same error you had For now... I've just hooked up a USB hub to one of the ports and that lets me hook up multiple devices to the VM. but not what I wanted obviously...
