^^It's pointless to update the gateway fw. It will just pull an update sooner than later again.
If you want to do it right, bypass entirely. Look in the uverse subsection on dslreports for how to (or links earlier in this thread).
I tried the netgraph/pfsense method some time ago but don't recall being successful using esxi. I ultimately reverted to the dumb switch method until earlier this year. The certs method become more attainable for a novice. Been using it for a few months now (with utm).
I remember reading a post on dslr where this scenario did indeed work. It had to do configuring the vnic correctly. See this post Re: PFSense RG Bypass with High Availability - AT&T U-verse | DSLReports Forums

Thus the reason for this thread. With windows running, cpu usage & power consumption is higher. Windows is used for htpc, typically 1-3hrs/day. After more observations, windows cpu usage varies depending what's left open. If I leave a browser open with some tabs, then idle is more like 5-10%...
Sorry to bump an old thread but this came up in my search while experiencing the same issue.
I successfully installed esxi 6.5 to a 1GB (pny), 2GB (no name), and 32GB (corsair voyager) usb flash drive. I also have an 8gb usb flash from siliconimage (vendor:pid ID 090c:1000). No go with this...
One box is serving several functions including running win 10 pro for htpc function. This is used for 1-3 hours most days and some days unused at all.
Windows 10 (1803) has the most current updates with further updates fully disabled.
At the end of the viewing session (kodi) I can either just...
Maybe I missed it, but are you also passing the nvidia hd audio as a separate pci device? If not, then that may be the issue. I didn't see it in your screen shots above, just the video portion in the vm config.
Link is a different type of disconnect method than d3d0. I couldn't get the video card to work with link, but it did work with d3d0. See the commented portion of the passthru.map file for explanation of the different reset methods.
Also, it goes without saying that esxi reboot is required...
Instead of link use d3d0
I added these lines to the end of the passthru.map file
