PCI passthrough with virtualbox

+1 vote

Since vbox has troubles with network latency we want to try pci passthrough of a network card. The docs say we need to "VBoxManage modifyvm "VM name" --pciattach 02:00.0@01:05.0", which means attaching the pci device in question to the guest.
But what about de-taching it from the host? The docs do not mention this at all. Has anybody real experience with this? Do we need to detach the device from the host or does vbox do that automatically in the background when attaching it to a guest?

If the host is Windows, goign to Device Manager and "disabling" the device would do the trick, I think. It essentially turns off the windows driver for it.

I'm running win7 prof under Fedora/VirtualBox-5.0-5.0.10_104061_fedora22-1.x86_64 with a valid product key.

If I try to upgrade to win10, it's rejected: cpu not supported (or similar), and not supported video card (the last seems to be a minor issue).

But my CPU is: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9300 @ 2.50GHz. The NX bit is on.

Installing win10 by the media creation tool in VirtualBox runs flawlessly (only the product key is invalid).

So my question: Anybody made similar experiences and could solve the issue?

I have just upgraded to 23 from 22 in a virtual machine using dnf as described in the Fedora Wiki, which went rather smoothly for me.

After manually installing the Guest Additions, the features "seemless windows" and "automatic resize of the guest desktop" don't work (the respective options in the views menu are greyed out).

The VBox kernel modules are built ok, but I get a warning saying: "unsupported pre-release version of X.Org server installed. Not
installing the X.Org drivers."

The X log says that there is X.Org X Server installed, which is a pre-release. I guess downgrading might cure the problem, but how?

Any advice?
