Hi ElmorStorm, and welcome to the VMware Communities!

Here's something to try, if it is suitable for your environment...

Go into your Server Board S2600GZ host's firmware setup, then choose Advanced > PCI Configuration.  Change Memory Mapped I/O above 4GB to Disabled.  Then try booting the VM with passthrough enabled.

Cheers,
