I have tried this on my C612 Wellsburg X10SRL-F and it hasn't worked so far - Wellsburg AHCI still shows up in Manage-->Hardware as greyed out at best (if not in passthrough.map as d3d0 it doesn't show up at all). so far I've tried
Code:
venid devid d3d0 false
venid devid d3d0 default
venid devid link false
veind devid default false
Has anyone with a C61x chipset been able to get this to work?? I am running out of PCIe slots...

I've had issues with the Lewisburg Sata chipset and pass through in 6.7. Tried all the tricks then gave up and moved back to proxmox

I'm having the same problem as others are reporting, adding the adapters vendor and device ID to the passthru.map file doesn't change anything.

Edit:
Updated to ESXi-6.7.0-20180804001-standard

And migrated from a USB boot option to a local installed disk option.
Nothing changed.
