I bought Intel NUC 54250WYK device. I installed last ESXI 5.5 update1 and I would like have the following setup (I am beginner with ESXi):
VM1: Windows 8.1 x64 with GPU passthrough
VM2: XENology (NAS) with USB passthrough
VM3: Ubuntu or other linux
NUC has VT-d: enable
NUC HDMI port is connected to Samsung TV 46C6000
For passthrough mode I used the following guide: http://www.webbosworld.co.uk/blog/?p=471
At first I installed VM1 machine without passthrough GPU = OK
When I add GPU to passthrough mode, system is unstable. In first case VM1 boot to windows, and after 30 seconds it froze. I restarted VM1 to safe mode, there is no problem with boot. In device manager I could see two VGA device (VMware SVGA and Intel HD 5000 - see attached picture ESXI-04.png). I disabled WMware SVGA and restarted VM1. But in this setting, system didn’t start boot (only black screen in console and TV showed no signal).
I google a couple of day and used the following advice without any success:
- Setting pciHole.start = “1200″, pciHole.end = “2200″ and allocation of all memory to guest
- I tried use EFI or BIOS for installation VM1
Please can anyone help me to setup VM1 with GPU passthrough? Do you have any tips, which I should try it?
Many thanks for any reply
