VMWare ESXi 5.5 - Installing drivers on guests
Posted on 2014-07-21
I'm experimenting with VMware ESXi 5.5 with a couple of guest Windows 7 x64 machines.
The installs went well, but I have a couple of driver questions. I have a very generic test motherboard that doesn't allow for passthrough, etc.:
1. The display driver appears as "VMware SVGA 3D". How do I get it to recognize the Nvidia GT 640 card? Is it just a matter of installing the drivers on the guest machine?
2. There doesn't seems to be a device for the sound. Again - is it just a matter of installing the sound drivers from the motherboard CD?
Thanks in advance.
