Fix PCI ID vendor

The pciid of the graphics card is still branded to Innotek GmbH while i.e. the BIOS bootup screen is not in the latest 2.1.2 release. This is a bit misleading - is this really intended?

This is just a matter of the PCI ID. We didn't change it yet for several reasons. One reason is that a Windows guest might complain / ask for re-activation if the PCI ID of the graphics card changes. Of course we will change this in the future (using a proper hardware version mechanism).

I agree with Frank that PCI IDs should not be changed on every acquisition; Otherwise we end up change again for Oracle.

Please close as WONTFIX

  • Summary changed from Graphics Card still contains Innotek GmbH's pciid to Fix PCI ID vendor

Well, we will update these PCI IDs eventually so I will leave this bug open. But yes, still unknown when this will happen.
