Thank you for the tips everyone!   I will retest the FC17 beta as soon as
find another hard drive... having some fun with VT-d right now.

I've been trying vt-d on every new machine I've built or come across at
work, and finally arrived on a home machine that does it, without having to
run a "server" grade mobo and cpu (pretty close though).

Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E cpu 4 core, 8 thread
Asus Sabertooth x79 main board
32gb ddr3-1600 ram
Radeon HD7970 graphics adapter

I'll post up my vt-d success story in a separate thread, but I was grinning
ear to ear when it first started working.
