    Default Ga-990fxa-ud5 Rev1.0 IOMMU

    Hello, I hope someone can confirm one way or the other for me. I have a ga-990fxa-ud5 rev1.0 board with the latest BIOS, and a FX-8350 cpu, wanted to run ESXi 5.5 or 5.1 with vmdirectpath. Turned on the virtualization in the BIOS and the esxi reports the host does not support the feature.

    Can someone help me to confirm whether this board supports the feature? As far as I have researched, the hardware is capable of doing it, so I am at a bit lost here.

    thanks in advance.

    Please discard my previous note. Went back and realized that I made a silly mistake (did not scroll down all the way for the IOMMU option to be seen).

    enabled it and the pass through option is available now.

    my apologies.

    No apologies needed. You discovered why. That's what counts, right?

    #3 - Please use the PSU Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be the PSU causing issues. I do(Lifetime PRO ver.) and will mention so if it is marginal for your build.
