If possible, keep the language english (also in screenshots), so more people can help.

I also don't quite understand your question, since you've uploaded a screenshot, you obviously have a VGA driver installed already? Otherwise there wouldn't be any display?

Good afternoon, I have Russian OS:( and the the following setting:

But in WinXP the driver is not installed. The device is not defined.


I need at least some video driver to be installed on the virtual machine, maybe it is possible to make the GPU passtrought on win xp?

But, as stated, you're seeing a display output - so it certainly is using the device, otherwise you wouldn't see anything. If the warning in device manager bothers you, try using different VGA modes, the default is usually supported pretty well across OS's.

GPU passthrough is a more advanced topic, and while probably supported on Win XP, it is hard to say as the OS is EOL anyway. Might also be hard finding drivers for 'real' passthrough GPUs these days.

Good day. I will explain the essence of my problem. I use virtual machines for games. In win 10, everything works fine and there is a driver, but this OS needs a lot of resources. XP consumes less resources, but the game does not start there. I think this is due to this video adapter

Then you *need* passthrough, anything else will not give you useable performance.

What makes you think that? In general my experience is that Windows 10 runs games a lot better than older versions.

No, it's because XP received it's last update in 2014. The video adapter is negligible anyway, as long as you're not using passthrough you won't get good game performance.

There does not require a lot of productivity. I need 1 core and 2 GB of RAM FOR Win XP.. for win 10 i need 2 cores and 4 GB of RAMю

XP is faster:)



Having summed up the drivers for XP you don’t have?
