I am trying to setup a VM Server on my old desktop hardware, the specs are:
MB: gigabyte 970A-D3P
CPU: AMD 8320
GPU to pass through: Sapphire HD7870 Ghz Edition
OS: Ubuntu Server 14.04.2 amd64
I have already set the grub boot option "amd_iommu=on"
I have done checks that my Hardware supports virtualization, and from what I can see all is good.
When I check dmesg for anything with IOMMU I get the following error:
dmesg | grep -e DMAR -e IOMMU
[ 0.973504] PCI-DMA: using GART IOMMU.
[ 0.973508] PCI-DMA: Reserving 64MB of IOMMU area in the AGP aperture
[ 12.724054] AMD IOMMUv2 driver by Joerg Roedel
[ 12.724057] AMD IOMMUv2 functionality not available on this system
Booting VM Errors
When I try to boot the VM, I get the following error:
Am I missing any steps in enabling the pci passthrough?
Or does my hardware simply not support PCI Passthrough?
Thanks for any help
