How can I achieve Xen VGA Passthrough with gfx_passthru=1 instead of

First of all try with Windows 7 instead of Windows 8.
People have reported using gfx_passthru=1 with IGD with Windows 7 successfully.

Dear Pasi,

I have just tried out with Windows 7. I appear to have some *small*
success with Intel HD Graphics 4600 VGA passthrough to Windows 7
Ultimate HVM domU.

However, the monitor has 16 colors only!!! Please refer to the
following screenshots.



As you can see from the above screenshots, there are only 16 colors
on the display!!!

Well increase the number of colors from Windows display settings?

Well, for some reasons unknown to me, I cannot change the number of colors on the monitor. And one more thing, the LCD monitor will blank screen after a while.

Yours sincerely,

Singapore Citizen Mr. Teo En Ming (Zhang Enming)
