No output on win10 vm after import from previous host

Hello,

I’m trying to get my windows 10 vm working since I moved to ubuntu 20.4. I didn’t have any problems with my vm when I was on elementary OS but now I get no display when I boot into my windows 10 vm. To be clear I have another vm where I passthrough my graphics card to a ubuntu 18.04 installation and it works fine there. Not really sure how to diagnose this and googling this issue hasn’t really been helpful.

I can’t view the vm with spice and QXL either.

Here is my XML:

Figured it out. When it comes to my 2080 you can’t add the USB 3.1 devices to your GRUB params. Removed them and it worked.
