PCIe SSD passthrough

Recommended Posts

I'm building my first NAS using unRaid and plan to run a Windows 10 VM for use as an HTPC


The motherboard that I will be using, an Asus H170M-Plus, has a M.2 slot that can accept either PCIe based SSDs.

If I choose to buy a PCIe SSD, Could I pass this drive through for the exclusive use of Windows rather than running the VM off of my cache drives?

Has anybody tried it? Would it be any different then passing through any other PCIe device?


Thanks for any help/answers you can offer
