    My USB boot drive crapped out and I had to re-install ESXi and import the vmx files.

    Prior to the crapout, I had my workstation running perfectly with a K2200 GPU passed thru and HW Virtualization enabled (for nested Virtualbox, Bluestacks, etc)

    Now I cannot for the life of me get it to work. If I passthru the GPU, and then enable HwV, it won't boot. Says it's incompatible.

    I've been searching now for a week and just can't find anything on getting this running. There's a few details on editing the vmx file....but I've had a no go.

    Any ideas?
