I’m dual booting Windows 10 and Centos 7.
And, since my NIC is excluded by VMWare from its general ESXi 6x support, I’m using Oracle’s VirtualBox as a workaround; until I figure out a better solution. The workaround that I’ve seen (for using an alternatively named driver) looks a little too complex.
I’m hoping that the one driver that runs with Windows 10 will also be adequate for Centos 7 as well.
However I’m not necessarily expecting this to be the case.
I haven’t tried it yet. But I plan to put the card in place some time tomorrow; not tonight. I just received the EVGA GEFORCE GT 740 in the mail a little while ago.
The UPS fellow left it on our doorstep without ringing the doorbell. A neighbor had to tell me it had arrived. And I’ve been busy looking at other things since then.
Provided that the Windows driver doesn’t properly power the Centos 7, which driver should I download for the Linux side? Please give the URL in your answer with the number of the driver.
Also, if I’m using Centos 5, 6 or 7, will I use a different driver? I would love to dual boot Solaris 10, Windows 10 and all three versions of Centos. But it seems a little too complex. I would love to get the ESXi 6x option working. But I need to focus on getting my next job instead.
I know that I’ve given you WAY too much information. But I thought that maybe you could offer something beyond just the driver number and URL in return. Just a thought.
