Re: [vfio-users] Radeon R9 290 passthrough to Win10 guest - bsod/reboot on driver install



Jonas, I've got an R9 290X and after fighting for a few weeks with Win7/8.1/10 BSODs during driver-install, I eventually just said "screw it" and stopped trying. It's one reason why I'm thinking of going Nvidia for this upcoming generation

I have tried both i440FX and Q35. Both seem to produce the same result. Q35 seems to reboot/crash earlier than i440FX, i.e. already during driver extraction before the installation begins. As a matter of fact the Q35 install is not stable at all, it reboots/crashes after roughly 1min no matter what I do (idle on desktop, at login screen, installing driver, etc.).

To answer a question by Quentin which went to me directly instead of the list:

Hello,

I have same gpu nearly same processor, and no problems.

I can install drivers without problem. Even very last ones.

I will send further information tomorrow as I am not on this pc right now :)

Does Radeon was loaded before you switch to vfio-pci?  (what was using card at boot)


What do you mean if Radeon was loaded before switching to vfio-pci?

First I configured my host to make vfio-pci claim the radeon card as described here (/etc/modprobe.d/vfio.conf with IDs to be claimed): https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PCI_passthrough_via_OVMF#vfio-pci

Then I install Windows 10 using virt-manager and its provided display (SPICE/VNC). Once the system is configured with an VNC server (or Synergy for sharing mouse/keyboard) I shutdown, remove all SPICE/VNC adapters, add my Radeon gpu and boot the guest again. This time the graphics output appears on the monitor connected to the Radeon GPU, and I would expect that I could just install the Radeon driver at this point, but apparently not.

I haven't tried installing Windows with the Radeon GPU passed through during installation, I will try that next.

What chipset emulation are you using?

Hello everyone

Anyone having Windows 10 guests with Radeon R9 290 passed through via VFIO, and if so, did you experience any problems installing drivers?

I have a R9290-DC2OC-4GD5 passed through to a Windows 10 guest (build 10586.104, newest ISO from Microsoft.com), and at first glance everything seems fine. I get output on my R9 290 GPU when I start my guest, Windows 10 boots, I am able to login etc., but I am stuck with some built-in Microsoft display driver because the Win10 guest reboots/BSODs when I try to install the AMD drivers.

Device manager on the guest shows a "Video Controller (VGA Compatible)" and its VEN_ID and DEV_ID indicates that it is the AMD R9 GPU. Regardless of whether I go through AMD's driver installer, or if I right-click this device and update driver the guest reboots during the installation.

I have tried different AMD driver verisons, but you can only go so far back before it complains that the driver does not support this version of Windows (i.e. version <14 does not support Win10).

Any suggestions as to what I might try to resolve this, or anyone with similar problems?

Thank you for reading,
JonasCJ

My config / setup is this:

Arch Linux, kernel 4.5.0, unpatched
CPU: Intel i7-4770
Guest GPU: R9290-DC2OC-4GD5
Host GPU: Built-in Intel i7 gpu
Motherboard: ASROCK Z87M Extreme 4 (GPU in PCI-E port 4)

I assume the basics are working since I get output on my guest gpu and no immediate BSODs/reboots etc., but for the sake of completeness:
