I am unable to provide a synthetic 3D adapter (vGPU) to my Windows 8 EE VM guest on WS2K8R2 SP1.
The symptoms I see are exactly as described by Waigel at the bottom of this thread: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserver8gen/thread/a91aa30f-1eaa-4392-a08e-5b26c190c655/.
Has anyone found a solution?
(a) My host's graphics adapter holds an Nvidia GeForce GTX G560 Ti
(b) The driver has been downloaded from Nvidia and is the latest (306.97)
(c) dxdiag states that the driver model follows WDDM 1.1

It seems that it is due to the GPU which can't be redirected in the WIN 8 VM.Pls try to confirm with Nvidia whether they can provide any driver update for this issue.

Thank you for contributing.
Your comment is not clear.
Firstly, this does not seem to be a case of a GPU which can't be redirected. There is no such behaviour: it is the "Microsoft RemoteFX Graphics Device" (aka the vGPU) driver which redirects DirectX commands to the RCC engine on the root partition.
Secondly, a Windows 7 EE SP1 VM ***does*** operate the vGPU properly; it is only the W8EE VM that throws the Code 43 error.
Perhaps your comment would be more helpful if you were to explain yourself better.

Thank you Don, much appreciated.
I will be quoting this thread as a reference in some research that I am carrying out.
