Anyone know what the best way to install games for a windows virtual machine on an HDD that belongs to a Ubuntu host

In essence I have a windows virtual machine that I want to use for gaming, I have a GPU passed through, I interact with it through looking glass and everything but I cant quite nail down the best method for game installation.

I have been to this website (9p virtio - KVM) but this all goes over my head

I set up a samba share but Oculus refuses to accept a network drive as a download location and steam outright doesn’t even see it, Origin sees it but as usual there are permission issues. Some how EPic games of all things has no problem installing to a network share

I have run out of ideas so any insight as to how I can just install a game on a file path that belongs to the host would be greatly appreciated.


What about about trying iSCSI?
