Problems with getting back to i440fx from q35

3 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

My pc has 2 gpu one RX580(first pci slot) and Nvidia 760(second slot). I tried adding the rx580 to a windows 10 vm and I encountered similar problems like: https://forums.unraid.net/topic/77964-solved-is-it-possible-to-pass-through-an-amd-gpu/.

Prior to this incident my windows install was running on i440fx-2.7 with SeaBIOS. I tested with q35 as suggested in the other thread. However this made my vm blue screen with and without the gpu passed thorough.

 

My problem is that now I can’t revert back to i440fx, I am getting an error “XML error: The PCI controller with index='0' must be model='pci-root' for this machine type, but model='pcie-root' was found instead”. Anny suggestions on how I can fix that?

 

Also it seems easier to passthrough gpus on a q35 with OVFM however however i would prefer not to reinstall my wm. Is there any way of passing an rx580 on SeaBIOS? I have read about dumping gpuBIOS and modifying it, however as far as I understand this was only something that could help on nvidia cards? on nvidia cards?

Note my nvidia 760 worked without problems(no bios mod) on this vm.

 

 

Ganeralt pc specs:

cpu: i7-5820K

M/B: MSI X99A RAIDER (MS-7885)

gpu: msi RX580 armor 8gb

gpu msi Nvidia 760

unraid:6.7.0

any help would be appreciated

Change any instances of "pcie-root" to "pci-root".

When moving between i440fx and Q35, always start a new template.

 

Btw, you need to boot the VM in UEFI. SeaBios and Windows don't work with Q35.
