RemoteFX Cap Driver help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Quite simply, the Cap Driver does not work - the only way to get my Dell C1100 to use the HD 7750 installed in it is by turning off the IGP in the BIOS, which means that I can't use IPMI anymore frown.gif

I suppose I could live with that if I absolutely have to, but has anybody had any success with getting the Cap Driver working?

If you install the RemoteFX cap driver, the integrated video adapter is disabled while the operating system is running.

For what it's worth, I have one of my C1100s running Server 2012R2 and have RemoteFX working with a Radeon 5450. I have not installed or dealt with the Cap Driver, unless it installed on it's own. I know RemoteFX works, but I have not tried my BMC since.

Did you have to do anything in order to get it to recognize your 5450 as the primary GPU?

Before I turned off the IGP, I couldn't even get Hyper-V to start RemoteFX enabled VMs - I'd get an error message from the 3D synth driver complaining about not having enough resources to start the VM.

Nope. Shut down the server, put in the 5450, installed AMD drivers, and then set up RDS Virtualization Host role (rebooted afterwards). I didn't disable anything in the BIOS, and I know the BMC worked before doing all of this. I would assume the BMC still works, but I don't have a cable connected to it right now (redoing cable with shorter Cat6 to clean things up).

Out of curiosity, which version of Catalyst are you running?

Ultimately I was unable to get this figured out, but there's something I figure I should warn everybody about:

If you are running the B23 BIOS (the latest BIOS as of now), do not disable the IGP in the BIOS. Doing so will render the BIOS completely inaccessible, even with a keyboard, mouse, and monitor directly plugged into the system - the BIOS will freeze the moment it loads. The only way I could fix the issue was by using the Clear CMOS jumper rolleyes.gif
