Ticket #3854 (closed enhancement: duplicate)
|Reported by:||Stephan.Ritscher||Owned by:|
PCI passthrough for Linux hosts as in Xen or KVM would be great.
The following scenario is (unfortunately) still quite common: For new hardware often there are no drivers, e.g. since the specifications were not released. So it would be great if one could use the devices in an virtualized Windows, instead. I myself have a Ricoh card reader and only can use it for SD/MMC cards, but not xD or MS/MS Pro. But since it is a PCI device, I cannot use it in VirtualBox, either. But it seems technically possible and would be a great enhancement (I prefer VirtualBox over other virtualization software for other reasons as usability). Thanks Stephan
