Re: [Xen-users] PCI Passthrough

Went back to what was working last night and now have the 7850 working
but only when I pass both graphics adapters through to the domU.

Hardware is

MSI Z77A-G45
HD2600XT in PCI-Ex16 slot 1 (pci:0000:01:00:[0-1])
HD7850     in PCI-Ex16 slot 2 (pci:0000:02:00:[0-1])

Dom0 is Fedora 17 with kernel 3.5.4-1 and the fedora version of xen.
vga_passthrough=0 is set
stdvga=1 is set
I stub out and pass both graphics adapters to domU, and then disable
the 2600XT at which point the 7850 works, and the fake VGA Graphics
adapter reports a code 43.

If I don't pass both cards to domU then both they will report code 43.

Not sure why this is, or what is going on. Looked around in the bios
for anything related to crossfire but couldn't find anything.


This puts a dent in my current plan which was to use the system to
support three different computers in three different rooms. Not sure
if anyone has seen anything like this/knows what might be going on.
