    I'm new to Linux and VMware.

    I have several flavors of Windows, Fedora 19 and OS X installed as guest operating systems in VMware on a a Windows 7 host.

    Video plays fine in all guest OS's except for Fedora 19. The video is "choppy" start, stop, start, stop. I downloaded and ran the correct graphics driver installer from this site but it does not work because the Fedora guest uses VMware's driver so the installer alerts that no Intel graphic are on the system.

    After googling and reading posts on this forum, I now realize why the installer does this.

    Is there anyway around this?

    Below is part of the output when I use "sudo lspci -vvv -nn":
