Last night I duplicated a blank 10.8 VM in ESXi 5.1 and ran the upgrade from 10.8 to 10.9.
Intel i7 920 - (http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B001H5T7LK/)
ASUS Rampage III Extreme - (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131642)
24GB DDR3 [6x4gb] Three of these kits (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16820231314)
Corsair TX 750 (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139021)
ATI 5450 GPU - PCIe - 512mb - (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814150600)
Belkin USB PCI card 5 Port USB 2.0 Model: F5U220V1 - (http://www.newegg.co...N82E16815108012)
ESXI 5.1 1065491 with Donk's Unlocker Patch
40GB VM container on Intel 520 SSD 180GB
VT-D Passthrough to:
ATI 5450 GPU - PCIe - 512mb
Belkin USB PCI card 5 Port USB 2.0 Model: F5U220V1
Update 6/27/13: I started over last night. After a fresh install, and updating to DP2 I modified two kext files and now GPU passthrough is working 100%.
The two kext's I added my device ID for my ATI 5450 are:
AMD5000Controller.kext and AMDRadeonX3000.kext.
Everything appears to be functional. I installed the VMware tools from ESXi and reboot and got some graphics options.
Only three resolution choices.
If anyone wants to see any tests done I'll give it a shot.
