Oracle VM 3.4 is part of Microsoft SVVP (Server Virtualization Validation Program) so, it's one of the virtualization solution validated by Microsoft.

For Microsoft Windows OS we also deliver dedicated drivers to grant the best experience possible while running Microsoft Windows on Oracle VM; on January 22 2018 we've announced updated Windows PV Drivers 3.4.3.

This updated WinPV release, signed by Microsoft as well as previous 3.4.2 release, introduces a huge list of enhancements and also the official support for Microsoft Windows Server 2016.

Before starting with the upgrade of the installed Windows PV Driver you can always verify the release already installed by "Device Manager":

  • Network

  • Disk Controller

If you're upgrading from WinPV Driver Release 3.4.1, please consider to follow this guide before upgrading.

Driver installation and/or upgrade is very easy; just download the updated driver and run the "Setup.exe":

and, once completed, reboot your Microsoft Windows virtual machine.

Once rebooted, it's always suggested to verify the correct driver release has been installed:

  • Network

  • Disk Controller

Again, consider to upgrade to this release where you'll find important enhancements for Microsoft Windows running on Oracle VM.
