NVMe controller not working

Reported by: Sven Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 5.1.6

Guest type: other Host type: other


Create a Windows 10 virtual machine in default configuration (no EFI, 1CPU). Then, after everything is installed and Windows is updated to version 1607, add an NVMe controller and a harddisk.

Result: In device manager, the NVMe controller shows up and the proper drivers are used. But it is marked with a yellow exclamation triangle. The NVMe drive is not available and cannot be partitioned.

On Linux, the NVMe controller doesn't work after "rmmod nvme; modprobe nvme". Tested with the LiveCD ubuntu-16.10-desktop-amd64.iso.

There are several NVMe-related fixed in 5.1.8. Please reopen if still relevant with VBox 5.1.8.

5.2.0 RC1 still has this (or similar) problem.

NVM Express controller appears in Device manager with yellow exclamation:

This device cannot start. (Code 10) An invalid parameter was passed to a service or function.

(Host: Linuxmint 18.2, guest: Win10 16299.15 guest [okay, this is an insider version today, but this build will be released next week to everybody as official Fall Update])

See #17228, closing this again as the issue for this ticket was something else (the current issue was introduced with the Windows 10 Fall Creators update)
