GPU Passthrough With GB 3070 Gaming OC


RJ83

Recommended Posts

I've worked through spaceinvaderone's videos on TS and still can't get past the black screen.  I've downloaded the appropriate rom, edited the nvidia header out, confirmed both the audio and video are on the same virtual slot and still no joy.  Has anyone been able to successfully get the card working on a W10 VM?  Full XML attached and I've tried loading the rom as both a .dump and .rom file.

 

edited for clarification: I should also note I was able to get the VM running prior to passing through the GPU and installed splashtop.  I have a monitor plugged into the card via hdmi (and a loopback dongle when it's not plugged in) and still cannot get this thing working.  Please help!

Hello!

 

This is the part of my xml for my RTX3080:

 

<hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'>
      <driver name='vfio'/>
      <source>
        <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x21' slot='0x00' function='0x0'/>
      </source>
      <alias name='hostdev0'/>
      <rom file='/mnt/user/isos/BIOS/Gigabyte.RTX3080.10240.200903.rom'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x06' function='0x0'/>
    </hostdev>
    <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'>
      <driver name='vfio'/>
      <source>
        <address domain='0x0000' bus='0x21' slot='0x00' function='0x1'/>
      </source>
      <alias name='hostdev1'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x08' function='0x1'/>
    </hostdev>

 

For passing throught the GPU to the VM, I've just ticked the boxes of my card:

 

IOMMU group 28:		[10de:2206] 21:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GA102 [GeForce RTX 3080] (rev a1)
 			[10de:1aef] 21:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GA102 High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)

 

And I have this script running at startup of array (settings/user script):

 

#!/bin/bash
echo 0 > /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon0/bind
echo 0 > /sys/class/vtconsole/vtcon1/bind
echo efi-framebuffer.0 > /sys/bus/platform/drivers/efi-framebuffer/unbind

 

Have you tried other bios rom files? Without any bios rom?

I have a 3080 and the only thing that worked was dumping my own V-BIOS. I found the old method using a temporary GPU the most reliable.

 


But this is the newer version. (This didn’t work for me)

 


edit: don’t put the loop back dongle in until you get it working with the monitor as it might be grabbing that as the primary monitor and is set to display on it only.

 

I have one and if I need to reconfigure unraid or my VM there is a risk it grabs it first

Hi guys, I have the same issue with a new brand 3060Ti :  Blank screen and/or at least seems that the VideoCard didn't work. I just tried to create the script mentioned bu Spaceinvaders, but, at least for me, this script didn,t work as it might be.

- It's stuck to the line where it says to restart the server. I did it...the server re started, but the script didn't go over

Two more questions:

- in the tutorial the script recognize which kind of card is installed, in my case the system didn't show any card ( just a general nividia card ). What I did worng ? How can I let the system to recognize which card is installed ?

- Did the script create on his own the dump file ? Or do we have to tell the system where the .rom file is located ?

 

I would really love to understand why my brand new card can't work and/or is not recognized.

 

THX

 

Any supoort is more than welcome

Why you using i440fx this always has issues with gpu passthrough.

 

multifunction is not in the correct spot

 

Passthrough all the other function of your video card then edit the multifuction . (usb port and other)
If you passthrough everything correctly you wont even need the bios.

Not sure if you are running the latest beta of Unraid; If you are make a new VM and paste in this XML. I also fixed the fact you have you multifunction on the wrong line.
