Simpler / Easier PCI Device Pass Through for NON-GPUs

Worked perfectly for me with a X11SCH-LN4F motherboard, didn't even have to reboot and no need to edit syslinux.cfg. pfsense VM immediately recognized both ports (be careful to use i440fx, if you use Q35, the ports will only be detected if they have active connections which is not exactly what we want for pfSense). Haven't rebooted yet, unsure if Unraid will try to take the ports for itself, if so I'll do some syslinux.cfg magic but don't think that will be necessary at this point.

If you have a non-GPU device that you wish to assign to a guest in KVM and are using the machine type of PC (not Q35), you can use this XML and skip the <qemu:cmd> arguments at the end.  This go

So, I've been helping a fellow forumite and wrote up this guide in another thread.  Thought it might be useful here for those new to KVM as there is a lot of confusion surrounding passthrough.

Hi Jonp,

Do you have any information on how to passthrough an Asmedia SATA Controller PCI card with two CD/DVD Optical Drives connected to it?  I successfully see the Asmedia devices on my Linux Mint VM profile but the optical drives remain invisible to my Linux Mint OS.  Any tips you may have will be welcomed a lot.
