HD audio Vmotion Issue

When trying to migrate a VM running windows 10 i get :Virtual machine is configured to use a device that prevents the operation: Device 'HD audio ' has a backing type that is not supported. "This is a general limitation of the virtual machine's compatibility with the ESXi version of the selected host."

It was P2V but have no need for audio but see no way to remove or disable in device settings for the VM, does it have the be removed from the OS?

Can you not delete the device in VM settings otherwise you’ll need to edit the device VM settings VMX file.

It’s not supported by vSphere for vMotion or does anything in the VM
