The bios of the nod says that vt-d is supported.
I have followed this steps to configure PCIe Passthrough :
*add /etc/modules
*update-initramfs -u -k all
* reboot the nod
But when I check if the changes have been brought into effect dmesg grep -e DMAR -e IOMMU -e AMD-Vi, I don't see that IOMMU, Directed I/O or Interrupt Remapping is enabled:

End of course, I haven't the device I want to pass through are in a separate IOMMU group:

Could someone help me finding what I made wrong ?
