  1. Hi So by the passth.. was it only the gpu section or you can plug a monitor to the hdmi and have a display from the onboard gfx ?

    1. Hi Johnny, I believe that if you connect HDMI cable to the server you’ll only see ESXi interface. Basically, I don’t think that there is any a to get the GUI from the VM and present it on a monitor connected to HDMI port of the server. There are USB to HDMI adapters that you can connect to the server, then pass USB port to the VM, configure something in the VM and see the inside of the VM on the monitor. However, I’m not sure how great of a picture or performance you can get this way.

  2. Hi,

    I’ve read that you also lose access to the ESXi *host* GUI (on-reboot) if you passthrough the only GPU you have, is that correct?

  3. Hi. ı own a HPE ML10 Gen9 Server with Intel E3-1225v5 cpu which also has HD530 graphics. But I do not see GPU on Esxi PCI devices tab. I am using custom ESXi image for hpe. ıs this might be the reason? Can ı use standart Esxi image?
