        Any luck with this?  I'm getting the same errors as you:

        Guest:   Fedora 23 w/2GB

         

        (CentOS 7 fails the same way.)  I've disabled onboard graphics and audio.  I've tried re-loading the radeon module in Fedora with runpm=0, pcie_gen2=1, and msi=0 but no joy.

          To fix the BIOS loading problem, I patch the kernel Radeon driver to load the VBIOS from a file in case the other methods fail. I ended up just downloading a copy of the VBIOS for my card, but it's safer to dump it out from DOS.

          Heres the patch (might need some changes for your kernel version): https://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/dri-devel/2014-November/072701.html

            @MrPippy: Thank you!  Your link shows how to modify the source code of

            my kernel, but rather than go that route, it gave me enough info to find

            the ATI site where they have posted RPMs for various cards.

             

            I did the following on my CentOS 7 box:

             

            - I downloaded https://www2.ati.com/drivers/linux/fglrx64_p_i_c-15.302-1.x86_64_rhel7_64a.rpm

             

            - I installed all the missing dependencies (note: you also need redhat-lsb-core)

             

            - Then:

             

              % rpm -Uvh fglrx64_p_i_c-15.302-1.x86_64_rhel7_64a.rpm

              Preparing...                          ################################# [100%]

              Updating / installing...

                 1:fglrx64_p_i_c-15.302-1           ################################# [100%]

              /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-populate-initrd: line 233: dfatal: command not found

              /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-populate-initrd: line 234: dfatal: command not found

              /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-populate-initrd: line 235: dfatal: command not found

              /usr/libexec/plymouth/plymouth-populate-initrd: line 236: dfatal: command not found

              /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.ahgIOH: line 1171: lsb_release: command not found

              ....

             

              <reboot>

             

              % aticonfig --initial

              % startx

             

            Then I added a wireless keyboard and mouse plugged into a USB card

            that's also passed through to the VM.  Success!  I can run `startx` from

            the console and X11 runs on the Radeon display.

             

            Now I've advanced to the next problem.  When I change the system default

            to graphical:

             

              % systemctl set-default graphical.target

             

            and reboot, I get a screen that says, "Oh no! Something has gone wrong."

             

            So the problems continue ....

              It appears someone has modified the sharing access to the google docs spreadsheet on this subject. I have restored full access to everyone and removed all editors plus prevented editors from changing these settings again. Hopefully all will be good now.

                I can't seem to figure out how to post on the thread without directly replying to someone.

                 

                Anyhow, I've got a PowerEdge T320 on the latest firmware.

                Installed ESXi 5.5 U3.

                Created a Win10 VM.

                Passed through my AMD FirePro W7000 and USB 3.0 PCIe cards.

                Got their drivers installed.

                And bam, I get working video/mouse/keyboard and even "audio".

                 

                But the AMD HD Audio is only giving me stereo.

                I'm not getting any Dolby Digital, DTS, etc.  Nothing but stereo?!?

                Any suggestions?

                I'll be trying a Win7 VM soon, but those take forever to load up all the latest MS updates before I can really test it.
