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

@powerhouse I tried your suggestions, but none of them helped. I suppose there is a problem with my patched kernel, but i don't know how to check if vgaarb is actually working as i still receive error when x-vga option is enabled. qemu-system-x86_64: -device vfio-pci,host=01:00.0,bus=root.1,addr=00....

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

I have installed the latest kernel which is by now 4.10.0-26. Well, I have to believe in something and ...

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

@powerhouse 2. What actually do you mean by "make and ..."? - I suppose model is by DELL, it's 3Gb and signed Bioses doesn't support UEFI, but unsigned does, so i'm trying them. Is it safe to check different bioses even if they aren't supposed for this card? 3. When you boot the VM without "vga none...

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

I've come to realize it just doesn't bother anyone anymore that even now more and more hardware manufacturers are locking us into the Microsoft machine. Maybe it's time t...
