I am using Xen-unstable 4.4 changeset 27214 and Linux kernel 3.10.0. My host operating system is Ubuntu 13.04 amd64. I have installed Windows 8 Enterprise 64-bit 90-day Evaluation as a HVM domU.

My Windows 8 HVM domU configuration file is as follows:

My VT-d capable computer hardware specifications are as follows:

1. Intel Core i5-4430 Quad Core @ 3.0 GHz with 6MB Cache VT-d capable

2. ASRock B85M Pro4 LGA1150 m-ATX Motherboard with UEFI BIOS flashed to version 1.50 VT-d capable

3. 32 GB (8GB X 4) Kingston DDR3-1600 CL 11 memory

4. Intel HD Graphics 4600 onboard

5. Gigabyte Geforce GTX 560 PCI Express x16

6. 2X 500GB Western Digital Harddisks SATA

7. 1X 160GB Hitachi Harddisk SATA

8. LG Blu-ray Writer Internal SATA

9. LG DVD Writer Internal SATA

10. Cooler Master Elite 311 ATX Casing with USB 3.0 port on the front panel

11. Dell 23" U2312HM LED Monitor w/ DVI port

Now, in the Device Manager in Windows 8 HVM domU, the display adapter under Display adapters is "Microsoft Basic Display Adapter". Please refer to screenshot at http://i.imgur.com/XDqMisl.jpg

When I try to install the Intel HD Graphics Display Driver, the installation software will try to detect the display adapter, and the LCD monitor will blink for 1-2 times. After that, the LCD monitor will go into Power Save mode *forever*, meaning blank screen. The installation of Intel HD Graphics Display Driver will *not* continue. Then I try to destroy the Windows 8 HVM domU domain and restart Windows 8 HVM domU. However, Windows 8 HVM domU fails to start after this. The LCD monitor will go into Power Save mode
again, ie. blank screen forever.

How can I overcome this problem and install the Intel HD Graphics Display Driver successfully?

Is my VGA Passthrough of Intel HD Graphics 4600 IGD to Windows 8 Enterprise HVM domU Still Considered Successful???

Please advise.

PS. I have also attached my Linux kernel 3.10.0 configuration file. Xen log files are also attached.

Attached /etc/grub.d/40_custom and /etc/xen/windows8.

Yours sincerely,
