Ive got a windows vm in VirtualBox. Its using the windows 10 64bit preset with 12gb of ram.

 

Im trying to get the GPU drivers installed, but It doesnt detect a amd gpu in the vm. 

How do i get the gpu to passthrough?

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

What os are you using? Windows 10 doesn't support gpu/pcie pass-though.

 

If your on linux, id use kvm+qemu for a vm with passthough as its generally more support.

Yeah, the vm is hosted by win10.

Is there no way to get gpu working in the vm without linux? (id have to get my spare ssd out, itt would be a pain)

Yea you need linux, windows server(with hyper -v, and nomrally much harder to setup).

 

 

What is your goal with the vm? What does it need gpu power for?

The virtual box virtual gpu should be plenty for that. Did you install the guest extentions?

 

You can then resize the vm to whatever resolution you want.

I got them installed, but the vm is still really choppy (moving windwos around is painful). How would i fix that?

is 3d graphics enabled? Is the windows resize working correctly?

 

But normally a vm doesn't have a great ui experience, so this is pretty normal.

I would try disabling 3D accelleration, seems to work better/smoother.

I'm on Linux, maybe that makes a difference. Last time I tried it worked a lot better without 3D acceleration enabled.

that, or the version of windows (i bet you know the one) needs 3d acceleration more than others

Try VMWare Player, it's free for personal use.

I am not sure about Windows as the host, but under a Linux host, VMWare has a fairly decent virtual hardware accelerated driver for Windows Guest Systems. Wouldn't hurt to give it a shot.

 

Virtualbox has always had a rather poor Windows Guest Virtual Video Driver.
