Установка VMWARE видео-дравера в Windows под KVM

WIndows XP не распознает видео-адаптер, который идет в стандартном варианте установки виртуальной машины под KVM.

Есть несколько вариантов обойти это. Можно заменить тип устройства с vga на cirrus в конфигурации виртуальной машины. WIndows распознает устройство Cirrus 5446 и будет использовать его. Но появится ограничение — в такой ситуации можно будет поставить видеорежим максимум с 24-битным цветом.

Можно использовать драйвер, предоставляемый VMWARE.

Установка драйвера от VMWARE

To install the driver, boot your windows guest with the provided cdrom image included at the end of this post attached. I’ve included two images, one for windows 32-bit guests and another for 64-bit guests. This driver is taken from the cdrom image provided with the free vmware server product. After booting your windows guest, navigate to your cdrom device and simply double click on the device or right click on the cdrom device and run “autoplay” to begin the installation as shown below.

Run Autoplay to being the installation.

Click next to complete the install.

To verify your install, you can go to the “Add/Remove Programs” section of your control panel and you’ll see the vmware vga driver installation as shown below.

This completes the installation of the vmware vga driver.

Reboot Windows guest with vmware vga device option

To actually use your newly installed vmware vga driver you need to reboot your windows guest to use the kvm provided vmware vga device option. If you’re managing your kvm , from the command line then you need to use the option –vga vmware option as follows.

qemu-kvm -vga vmware ...

If you’re using a GUI management tool then select the vmware vga option. Since virt-manager seems be popular below shows the option in virt-manager VM details window.

On booting your windows guest, it’ll take a minute to register the driver after logon and you may notice a screen flicker. Once this is complete you will now see the vmware vga driver under your device drivers as shown in the screenshot below.
