Configuring Windows

Installing the IVSHMEM Driver



Windows will not prompt for a driver for the IVSHMEM device, instead it will use a default null (do nothing) driver for the device. To install the IVSHMEM driver you will need to go into device manager and update the driver for the device "PCI standard RAM Controller" under the "System Devices" node.

A signed Windows 10 driver can be obtained from Red Hat for this device from this git issue report:

https://github.com/virtio-win/kvm-guest-drivers-windows/issues/217

Note: The driver provided here is temporary pending an updated build of the VirtIO-win image from Red Hat.
