The following GPU´s will be tested in near future:
amongst others:
Nvidia GeForce GTX280
Nvidia GeForce GTX260
Nvidia GeForce GTX460
AMD Radeon HD 5850
AMD Radeon HD 4890


  1. Can you provide insight as to how to get the ATI drivers to consistently install and work under Windows 2008 R2. without hacking INF files, I find that the ATI drivers will not install the actual driver.

  2. Hello Joe,

    after the setup process has finished and failed installing the drivers, you can browse to the unzipped driver directory (e.g. C:\ATI)and install the driver via the device manager. This worked in our environment except of CCC

  3. Did you ever test the GTX260? I have one which is about to become spare, and I'd like to try it in the Hyper-V/RemoteFX test server, but it would be handy to know your experiences beforehand.

  4. GTX260 hasn´t been tested yet, but probably it might work, as the GTX275 is quite near the GTX260

  5. I tested my GTX260 and it seems to be incompatible, sadly. I got a GTX560Ti 1GB based on the feedback from here and elsewhere, but I'm not having much luck - I either get the horrid "Synthetic 3D adapter failed to start" or else the VM boots fine but only with the VGA driver. I've clean reinstalled the thing a dozen times by now, following the official Microsoft and also the guides, and no luck. It doesn't seem to want to install the RemoteFX driver on the VM (Win7 Ultimate) no matter what I do. Any ideas?

    1. I've got a GTX460 that i'd like to use, but don't know if it will work or how to install it onto my win7 ult guest. I'm Running a Cor i7 2600K CPU. I've done all the instalations regarding remote FX on the system I just need to get the VM to work with my GPU. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
