On SRIOV, we noticed that Windows 10 supports only for NDIS Network driver.
Will Windows 10 support SRIOV on NVMe SSD over PCIe?
If Windows 10 supports SRIOV on NVMe SSD over PCIe means , will SRIOV Initialization steps taken care by BIOS or we need to write driver for SRIOV initialization?

    Hi,

    You said, Windows only supports SR-IOV for network devices.
    Could you confirm that Windows 10 now support SR-IOV for network devices with Hyper-V. If yes, which build of Windows 10 ?

    I understood the supports of SR-IOV for network devices under Hyper-V was available only for server version and not on Windows 10 client ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Greg
