Message 132142 - Posted: 20 Aug 2019 | 1:58:41 UTC

Having an issue with the software not recognizing the GPU; is this typically an automatic process? And it should also show up as a coprocessor?

I'm running BOINC on a Win10 VM with GPU passthrough on ESXi. Not a standard config, but I haven't had any problems with this setup before.

9 times out of 10 the problem is that a Windows 10 update broke the Nvidia driver. Go download the driver directly from Nvidia's website and install it.

The VM is still on Win10 v1709; I crippled Windows Update over a year ago. It already had the driver, but I did reinstall the latest anyway. Device Manager shows both the 1070 and the "VMware SVGA 3D" devices.

I don't mind sending logs since this is just a VM that used to see some light mining if you point me to what you want to see.

I don't think gpu's work in Boinc on VM's.

check the tools->event log tab you should see something like this when starting BOINC

and yes, gpus will certainly work in BOINC on VMs with proper passthru

Do I just need to figure out how to get it out of daemon mode?

yes, probably easier to reinstall and don't pick service mode during install

So it even says during install that GPU tasks are disabled, so sorry about this.

My GPU is making a lot of heat again, thanks mfl0p and everyone else.
