Hi, I am trying to pass through an Adaptec 3805 card installed in the host to a Windows Server 2008 R2 VM.  Windows Server sees the card, but when I tried to install drivers for it, I get a Code 10 error: This device cannot start.  The card works on a regular (non-VM) Windows 2008 R2 box.  Does anyone know how to fix this?  Thanks!  Hammer8
