I've installed Windows 10 as guest. Everything is OK. But I would like to use my physical hard drive (/dev/sdc) with files. When I start the virtual machine only shows 'Booting from hard disk'. I use Single GPU passthrough (this tutorial). How to connect this drive? My primary virtual disk is connedted by executing command -drive file=windows.qcow2,if=virtio,format=qcow2.

Without trying, reading your one-liner "-drive file=windows.qcow2,if=virtio,format=qcow2" reads quite a bit less and different than described in the tutorial [https://gitlab.com/YuriAlek/vfio/wikis/Use/#windows][1] you refer to. If setup, as the tutorial describes, a simple 'windows' in your terminal should start the machine
