[Xen-devel] Successful Xen VGA Passthrough with Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6450 Display Card


I would like to report successful Xen VGA Passthrough with Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6450 display card.

Details are as follows:

Host operating system dom0: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
Linux kernel: self-compiled 3.16.1
Xen hypervisor: self-compiled 4.4.1
Guest operating system domU: Windows 7 Ultimate HVM domU
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6450 Driver DVD: INSTALLED

Please refer to the attached file amd.txt for installation details. I will write a more detailed installation guide later on. Stay tuned.

Also please refer to attached screenshot showing that AMD RADEON HD 6450 in Display Manager DOES NOT have error code 43. There is NO yellow exclamation mark beside the AMD Radeon HD 6450 in Display Manager. Xen VGA Passthrough is fully successful.

I would like to report that Xen VGA Passthrough with Windows 8 HVM domU is NOT successful. Although Windows 8 HVM domU can boot up successfully initially with successful VGA passthrough, it SUBSEQUENTLY keeps rebooting forever whenever I tried to start Windows 8 HVM domU.

Currently I have a problem. Although I passed through the USB controllers, the USB keyboard and USB mouse is not working. I need to open a VNC Viewer to Windows 7 HVM domU and control the USB mouse from within the VNC Viewer. This is not ideal. Please help me with this problem so that I can use the USB mouse and USB keyboard directly within Windows 7 HVM domU.

Thank you very much.

Yours sincerely,

Teo En Ming
