Out of curiosity, just because the CPU supports VT-d doesn't mean that
everything else in the system does or that it's enabled in the BIOS. My
work computer, for example, supports it, but I had to explicitly enable
it first. So just something to double-check.

Note: my issue is that the VM cannot start under pvh.

Is VT-d / hardware assisted IO required for pvh?

I don't need hardware assisted IO. I just want to be able to start the VM under pvh rather than pv.
