    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

    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

    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

    Have fun guys !!!!!

    Cheers

    Windows 10 Home as KVM guest?

    I currently run Windows 7 as a KVM guest on top of Linux. Will I be able to do the same for Windows 10 Home?

    Linux Host HYPERVISOR to Windows 10 Guests passthru (KVM)

    Windows 10 Host -- Windows 10 Guest Hyper-V -- GPU not detected

    No, the RemoteFX adapter provides good enough 2D/3D acceleration just fine. Not software in any way, it is full hardware 2D/3D acceleration.
    I am not using a generic driver in the Host OS, nor in the Guest OS in any way.
    Host OS has latest AMD Radeon drivers, Guest OS - the matching RemoteFX drivers.

    I am not 3D rendering or playing heavy games in the VM, of course. *Smile Linux Host HYPERVISOR to Windows 10 Guests passthru (KVM) :)
    I do not use or need Linux here. Windows 10 Host, Windows Guests.
