Hello, im trying to passthrough my entire unassigned device (Samsung 1TB SSD) but the guest os (mojave) sees the disk as spinning disk and doesnt show that trim is supported. SMART = YES, but no TRIM.


Am i supposed to passthrough the device in a different manner than what i have here? im setting boot order=2 becuase im also passing a pci-e nvme drive as the boot drive to the quest. 


<disk type='block' device='disk'>
  <driver name='qemu' type='raw' cache='writeback'/>
  <source dev='/dev/disk/by-id/ata-Samsung_SSD_860_EVO_1TB_S3Z8NB0M101503K'/>
  <target dev='hdc' bus='sata'/>
  <boot order='2'/>
  <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' target='0' unit='2'/>
