Microsoft Hyper-V with RemoteFX

I've tried setting up VDI with RemoteFX but I keep getting this error Microsoft Synthetic 3D display Controler Failed to Power on with Error 'Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service' (0x800705AA)".

I've made sure I have all the system requirements.

My server is a Dell PowerEdge R815 and I installed an ATI FirePro 3D V5800 which RemoteFX says it supports.

I installed the latest Server 2008 SP1 RC on the host server and I installed the SP1 on the Windows 7 VM.

When I enable RemoteFX and try starting the VM I get the error stated previously.

Has anyone been successful getting remotefx working?

Are you sure you are meeting all the requirement stated here.

Are you sure that you have SLAT support in your CPU? In order to find out whether you 2008 R2 box is using SLAT you can use this link.

It shows that I have SLAT. The server had the latest AMD Opteron 6168 CPU's, and I've disabled the onboard video like the document says. I've installed the latest Windows 7 video drivers from ATI's website. I even installed the CAP driver although I don't think I need it.

I reinstalled the VM and removed the CAP driver. Now the VM boots with RemoteFX but I have two unkown devices in the device manager. It seems that the video drive is not loading or installing on the VM.

I was running Windows 7 Pro, but I just read somewhere that RemoteFX only works with Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate. I don't see what difference it makes, seems like another Microsoft scheme to make more money.

Look at this from Microsoft Tech-Net at the bottom -

To use RemoteFX on a virtual desktop, you must be running one of the following editions:

Windows 7 Enterprise with SP1


Windows 7 Ultimate with SP1



I think this is the reason why it's not working with Windows 7 Pro

Yes i can confirm this.
Tried to setup
Host = Windows 2008 R2 SP1
Virtual Desktop = Windows 2008 R2 SP1 with remote desktop services installed
After adding the RemoteFX 3D video adapter to the virtual desktop it failed to turn on with that error.
Setup a Windows 7 Ultimate virtual desktop same configuration and worked fine.
Very annoying that Windows 2008 R2 SP1 with remote desktop services has to be on a physical box to take advantage of RemoteFX 3D video...

It looks like Microsft has created strict guidlines for thier vdi product. Remotefx requires Win 7 Ultimate or Enterprise to work.
