    I had AMD RX480 in EXI 6.5 all was working fine.

    Not I replace RX480 by AMD VEGA 64

    I am unable to get working passthrough. When windows try to boot always freeze.

    Already done:
    Reserved all memory - YES
    Expose hardware assisted virtualization to the guest OS - YES
    hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = FALSE

    If drivers are not installed GPU seems to be OK in host (Windows 10)
    Once I will install driver system will not boot

    Sorry but I can't help you, I was wondering if you had any problem passing through the RX480?

    Because in my case it have been unsuccessfull.
    I also have the ESXi 6.5 installed.
    It is crashing on Win10 when I try to install the AMD Drivers, I get BSOD with the code THREAD STUCK IN DEVICE DRIVER

    Can you help me?

    I had the same problem with several cards. I got it working doing 2 things that I got form documentation from both NVIDIA and AMD about vt-d with the video cards.
    I had to enable above 4G decoding on the bios in my Supermicro motherboards and explicitly add the pciHole options. Here are some links with the information.

    Hope it helps.
