Even CPU processors have bugs, the situation is even worse with today’s GPUs which are even more complex and where none of them are fully working fully as described in specs, or even wokeing the same way in the same production series, with some parts generating errors that need local corrections, or with parts failing quite rapidly because of heat or because of random defects in the chemical production process; chipsets are also very complex units as they work with so many different clock constraints, that need special autodetection algorithms to provide alternate working paths either in the software driver or in the mutable firmware embedded in the firmware.

The problem is purely that there is no driver that works properly with this device for bit Windows, so it’s entirely a guest issue.
I had already tried this driver. Sort Date Most helpful Positive rating Negative rating.
MEDIA – Intel – Intel(r) ICH4 AC97 Audio Driver Computer Driver Updates
Now I will have to spend the rest of the day fixing controlldr instead of working. Pros Restored my sound to orig specs on the first try. This can only be explained by a bug in the device emulation on the host.
Apparently this driver still has difficulties to find the virtualized hardware. The terms of the software license agreement included with any software you download will control your use of the software.
But it just worked. End of Interactive Support Notice: As far as a device supporting both HDA integrxted AC97, if that’s indeed the case, it’s either two PCI functions logical devices supported by one device, or two separate devices entirely. Intel is one of the world’s largest and highest valued semiconductor chip makers, based on revenue. Use the AC97 device.

The way we have designed the interface for AC’97 Codec and vendor-specific controller in Plan9, there is a clear distinction in the code between the Controller and the Codec code. Intel r AC’97 Audio Controller. Make sure you follow the instructions on ticket very closely.
The driver installed fine, and it appears in Windows 7, and media player in guest “sees” an audio device, but host doesn’t produce any sound. May be it works because your actual audio on the host is effectively compatible with AC’97 and your audio device is still more basic But more recent “HD Audio” devices are not all directly compatible with this older AC’97 specification which seems to be supported only as a local-only virtualization, indirectly on the guest where it reuses the actual HD Audio driver in a lower layer of the guest OS, and only t oprovide backward compatibility within some applications ; HD Audio devices include additional security requirements which are part of the DirectSound driver model specification for managing, for example, the HDCP protocol over HDMI and digital audio output jacks, and for managing DRM rights and data encryption for the highest quality output including within the audio mixer which cannot mix unsecured and secured audio sources and render a high quality mixed signal to an unsecured analog output.
The host audio doesn’t have anything to do with it, the audio is fully virtualized.

OEM manufacturers like HP or Dell still sell PC without clearly indicating if they support VTX, even if they indicate “Windows 7 ready” and “64bit version suppported” Could that be caused by lack of hardware virtualization?

We could allocate them in the beginning and initialize the BDL. If you do not wish to so agree, do not install or use the Software.
AND to top it off, it didn’t fix my speaker issue. We had trouble finding out that internal clock of the Controller could be buggy and would play out audio at an abnormal frequency. In fact it should just read “does not work on Windows 7 guest” because this also includes bit version “and Vista guest” where exactly the same symptom is observed.
