What does one need to make a 10GbE card work in Big Sur, except for the AQ quirk in OC? VT-D must be on, anything else? Patches, maybe?
If the card is compatible with macOS (Sonnet cards generally are), then there's nothing else to do. If the card is not appearing in BIOS, try moving it to a different slot.

If only I had another free slot... Will investigate.

So the Sonnet card works OK in the lower x4 slot. But now I am 1 PCIe slot short. Will try another card in the x16/x8 top slot and see if that works.
My USB3 card works in the PCIe x16 slot. Waste of lanes, but hey, it works. I am happy.

Ah.. I like Stage Manger in someways but having to deal with icons or files on Desktop while Stage Manager enabled, is a nightmare.
Lol, never mind on this. There is an option to toggle off or on to view desktop items while Stage Manager is on. It's just off by default.
