This is a follow up to a pervious question. I have a Ubuntu host with a Win 2008 KVM. To improve performance the network and IO - @dyasny and the documentation recommends installing virtIO drivers. I did follow this :
Downloaded the ISO from:
Now I am not sure how to proceed. I have the Win 2008 VM already installed with the virtual disk in RAW format with an IDE bus.
I opened the iso and have several folders. Like E:\Balloon E:\NetKVM E:\vioserial E:\viostor
I am assuming NetKVM is for the network drivers and viostor is for the disk drivers. For the NetKVM, there is only Vista and XP sub-folders.
Similarly for the viostor: there is a folder structure like below. E:\viostor\Win7 E:\viostor\Wlh E:\viostor\Wnet E:\viostor\WXp
So in summary, my questions:
- Which folders should we use for Win 2008 64 bit?
- How do I install the NetKVM for an existing VM?
- How do I ins tall the viostor for an existing VM?
- Finally, just out of curiosity, what is Ballon and vioserial drivers for?
Thanks a ton for your help!
