Are you the first person to see these Macbooks? Could the previous tech who worked on them have damaged the cable?
And yes, Computer with bad cables do crash and they do freeze - at least computers running a UNIX/Linux operating system. UNIX/Linux are far less tolleratnt to losing their disk...
There is alot more than just following the article. It is also a bit out of date, shouldn't need pci-stub now. Also you will runing into Code 43 errors within Windows as NVIDIA will detect the GPU is running within a VM. You also want to make sure your HW is compatible.
Look through this blog...
Here is one guy who uses KVM: VFIO tips and tricks: Intel processors with ACS support
The big thing you want to look into is ACS support and IOMMU groups.
Here is one thread about a guy talking about High End Sky Lake, ACS, and Alex linking to his post on IOMMU Groups: Re: [vfio-users] Want to...
Hey man, seriously use search on this forum of even Google.
Let me google that for you
Most anything that can do GPU / PCIe passthrough with Xen or KVM can also do it with ESXi. The main issue you will run into is with ESXi's requirement on GPUs that are allowed to be virtualized, certain...

This thread, has tons of info:
Join the VFIO mailing list. I'm currently running a Fedora 23 host and passing through a GTX 760, Creative SB Z, USB Controller to my Windows 10 VM.
I have a DSL modem with the same setup, however when I have pFsense do the PPPoE authentication, it will randomly fail the authenticate, causing me to have to rebooot both the DSL Modem and pfSense VM. To be able to have pfSense authenticate my PPPoE credentials, I had to setup my modem up in...
And if you wanted to change your 970/980 into a Quadro, you can apply a patch to the QEMU packages in which you can specify the Device ID you want the VM to see. Right now my GTX 760 is actually Quadro K5000.
You will get Code 43 issues. Your best bet is to use KVM. From there, you can get stock GTX cards to work without code 43 by eliminating HyperV extensions within KVM as well as hiding the hypervisor from the OS. The next level is you patch qemu to allow you to modify the PCIe Device and Vendor...
An update...I'm running the latest Windows10 build 10162, and can say that things are flawless from a device perspective. The OS still needs a little work, but 95% is working -it is RTM by month end. All device drivers are found, even Intel Graphics has a new driver, compared to Windows 8...
Install to USB, this way you can test upgrades later by swapping USB sticks. This is what I do.
After you get ESXi installed, you can install and remove the different VIBs. You may have some issues finding support as your chipset is so new.
You have never been able to copy and paste into the vSphere console. We had this issue with 400 VMs that had to be FSCKd when a filer they were residing on went down. Stupid complex passwords....... We have since automated the recovery process from this with a special ISO and VMWare PowerCLI.
Can't talk about OSX as it isn't legal.
I have an i3-Sandbridge NUC which I paid 160 for. It accepts both 1.5/1.35 voltage ram, though currently running whatever i could get from Best Buy. Currently running ESX on it.
I am also running KVM on a dedicaged FreeNAS/Gaming system in which i'm...
Just buy her more iCloud storage if required. KISS :-)
Also, make sure you go through showing her how to listen to and then delete Voicemails. My Grandma, though on a flip phone, her mailbox is full and has been for years....
I would enable bigger/bolder text, select best size suitiable for iPhone 5S/6/6+:
Settings > General > Accessibility > Bold Text (Enable then Restart)
Settings > General > Accessibility > Larger Text > Larger Accessibility Sizes (Enable then restart)
The next two might be worth while...
The most you will ever get on a single TCP connection will be 1Gbit. Have you thought about transferring the SAS controller and drives over to the new system?
As stated above, you could put each connection into its own subnet and then do 4 simultaneous transfers.

Asus P6X58D Premium w/ Core i7-920
Ends Thursday, 8:54PM CST
If u want to go with ESXi, go AMD. Other than that, AMD has its own issues, more so than NVIDIA. One thing I liked about my NVIDIA cards is their support for FLR. It allows them to survive reboots better.
