Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Hello all, I have an hardware question for you. I plan to upgrade my scren to a 27" WQHD. However, in order to attain this resolution both in Dom0 and domU I need to replace the Dom0 onboad IGP by a dedicated PCIe card. The problem is that my current motheboard (Asrock Z77 Pro 4 M) only boot from f...

Re: Post your Passmark results of your Windows VM

@Nesousx: Thanks for sharing the benchmarks! I have some questions/requests: 1. Motherboard model and BIOS release? 2. I assume you use the "xm" toolstack. 3. 3 cores - do you mean 3 VCPUs ? 4. Disk performance - do you use the GPLPV drivers and LVM? Thanks again. You're welcome! I edited my post w...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Hello all, In order to avoid any "bad surprise", I highly suggest you pin the xen packages. You can do this by creating the following file: /etc/apt/preferences.d/xen Package: libxen-4.1 Pin: version 4.1.3-3ubuntu1 Pin-priority: 1001 Package: libxenstore3.0 Pin: version 4.1.3-3ubuntu1 Pin-priority: ...

Re: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough

Thanks a lot for this great tutorial Powerhouse, I followed it and it worked fine on Linux Mint 14. However I add to modify a symlink in order to make it work. At some point I had the following error: Could not read keymap file: '/usr/share/qemu/keymaps/en-us In order to fix this I checked my files/...
