patpro replied to joe_black's topic in Multi-booting and VirtualisationWhat VMware product are you writing about? ESXi?
[SUCCESS] Mavericks Installs on ESXi 5.1 - All 100% working in DP1, DP2, DP3, and DP4 w/GPU passthrough, audio, and usb passthrough
patpro replied to kwiksilver's topic in OSx86 10.9 (Mavericks)Hi kwiksilver, I'm glad to read OS X can run on top of ESXi with lots of features like GPU, sound, USB passthrough. I've done some testing on top of my Mac Pro (hence fully supported, no hack). But on Apple hardware I was not able to passthrough USB and sound. Some reading about my project at http://www.patpro.net/blog/index.php/tag/virtualisation/ from bottom to top of the page. My main purpose is to build a multi-OS workstation, with full hardware power (a GPU and USB passthrough for each VM is a nice start, but sound would be great too). It would need at least one discrete GPU for each VM, of course. So my question about your setup is the following: do you run other VMs on your ESXi, with passthrough? I'm especially curious about USB and sound. Also, are you using this setup on a daily basis, or is it just for fun/challenge?
