Nutanix VirtIO 1.1 Drivers Released

If you are a Nutanix customer and using AHV (Acropolis Hypervisor), I have some great news for you. We have released VirtIO 1.1 drivers, and the big deal is that they are now Microsoft WHQL signed. I know the lack of signing was holding back some customers for production workloads. No longer!

VirtIO 1.1 And there’s a nice Nutanix install wizard:

Nutanix VirtIO Please do note, this signed driver package is for 64-bit operating systems only. The supported operating systems are:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8.x
  • Windows 10
  • Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016

You can directly download the drivers from here. We have them in both .MSI format and ISO, depending on your needs. All of the related documentation can be found here, including the special case of 32-bit operating systems. And don’t forget, if you want to inject the VirtIO drivers into your Windows ISO, check out my blog post here.

Actully the Windows 7 and Windows 2008 are still NOT Microsoft signed. Check out the for example the vioscsi.sys file and you will see Nutanix has signed these drivers. They are NOT Microsoft WHQL signed!
Windows 10 and 2012 are signed by microsoft.

I realize that this thread is over 12 months old however, I’m wondering if the MSI that you (Derek) reference exists. I cannot seem to find it (i.e. the NGT MSI) on the portal.
