I'm attempting to get a graphic card passthrough emulation under way.
this is my first attempt at this so I'm hitting many road blocks
I have ubuntu 16.4.1 64bit freshly installed bare metal and updated my kernel is 4.4.0-31-generic.
I have ennabled IOMMU under my bios (where it shows up as intel VT-d)
and am now trying to configure my kernel and grub
according to this guide there are several options to enable in kernel : http://www.linux-kvm.org/page/How_to_assign_devices_with_VT-d_in_KVM
but I do not know how to configure an ubuntu kernel and the provided commands do not work.
I saw this guide https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/BuildYourOwnKernel which gave me no indication whatsoever as to which situation I was in and if this applies at all.
I also do not know what the exhaustive list of changes I have to make to the grub are.
and finally I do not know what program is supposed to be the one to setup the virtualization setup : qemu kvm or virt-manager or another.
Ideally i'd like to not create a fresh image but emulate my existing Windows that is on another hard drive not currently plugged in.
or if that is possible transpose the full existing install into my cow file to avoid the pain of running through all the long installs.
I'd like to use my CPU as igpu for my linux and my Nvidia graphic card would be the one passed through.
My hardware :
-intel 3930k -ASROK Extreme6/GB (type that into google it works) -ASUS GTX 760 -16 GB RAM Gskill -256 GB Sandisk ultra 2 SSD
Any helping hand is welcome !
