So I'm trying to get my laptops NVIDIA fx 880m to pass to a virtual box running window seven on a linux mint 17 install.
So far everything seems to be (maybe) heading in the right direction:
the device passed through happily, when I booted the virtual box it installed a bunch of new drivers, but when I try to install the NVIDIA driver on the guest it can't find the card. I looked under the device manager and there's no listing for the nvidia card under the pci bus, my guess would be that I need to disable it in the host so that it can be passed through to the guest (the virtual box manual said they can't be shared) but I'm not sure how to do so. Can anybody help with this? This question does not seem to me to be a duplicate of Cannot setup PCI Passthrough for display adapter in VirtualBox, because here the given solution was that it was not possible with a windows host, however in this case the host is linux
