    Example of Windows 10 Running on KVM (Hypervisor) on Linux Host


    Hi folks

    Here's a recent build of Windows 10 running on the Linux HYPERVISOR (equivalent to Windows HYPER-V) KVM -- it's built into the kernel so all the extra packagres are available to run this. The main problem is to create a network bridge (equivalent to HYPER-V external switch) which you need - otherwise your VM won't have access to anything else on the network other than VM's on the same network.

    However follow this and it's easy enough (similar on other distros such as ubuntu as well)

    Install and Configure KVM (Bridge Net Interface) on CentOS 7 / RHEL 7 – tuxfixer.com

    The only other thing left to do is to add the equivalent of VBOX additions etc to optimise video / sound / i/o.

    Install the virtio-win package from Fedora and also download the .iso. Attach the .iso to the windows guest and install within the windows guest-- "Seeemples ...."! You need to install both on host and guest - the iso has signed windows binaries.

    No probs with sound / networking or adding usb devices.

    I'm running this as a test -- the HOST OS is booted from an external SSD via USB, the VM is on another external SSD via usb so not the best way and I've still to add the additions - but the Guest is snappy enough so far.

    I'll probably create some more Windows VM's this way as I can probably run a lot more VM's with KVM than using VMWARE workstation

    Cheers

    Linux Host HYPERVISOR to Windows 10 Guests passthru (KVM)


    Hi folks
    for those using Linux Hosts and want to try out a hypervisor (built in in typical Linux distros) where you can pass thru video / usb stuff to guests - Windows 10 runs fine -- just follow steps in this link

    Running Windows 10 on Linux using KVM with VGA Passthrough s Blog

    It certainly is a lot easier and more flexible than HYPER-V and it doesn't need Windows PRO to run - so any machine with a Linux distro -- go for it.

    Cheers

  3. is Windows Server 2016 supports UEFI secure Boot on KVM Hypervisor?

    Hi

    As part of customer ask we are validating Windows Server 2016 [Guest VM] UEFI secure boot mode on KVM(Hypervisor) Host. I am looking for support documents which helps me in assessing the same.

    is Windows Server 2016 supports UEFI secure Boot on KVM Hypervisor? if so please provide information here.

    Environment Details

    KVM Host :RHEL 7.3

    Guest VM : Windows Server 2016

    Qemu Version : qemu-kvm-ev-2.9.0-16.el7_4.13.1

    Thanks in Advance.

    Windows 10 Virtualisation on Linux via KVM Hypervisor


    Hi folks

    If you have time here's another interesting little experiment.
    Linux also has it's own HYPERVISOR (almost counter part of HYPER-V in Windows). Actually it also has XEN but KVM IMO is easier to set up.

    Citrix uses XEN and as I've had HIDEOUS experiences with Citrix in various workplaces I've given XEN a miss and gone for KVM as a test to play with.

    Here's a way to get a Windows 10 guest running under KVM (or other VM's) but this link specifically deals with Windows 10

    Windows 10 Virtualization with KVM

    Have fun guys !!!!!

    Cheers
