View Full Version : 3 VMs Built

Well, there that's done (smile). I recently revamped my tower motivated by wanting to use Hyper-V in Windows 8. That said, I have completed building 3 VMs for client support. XP, Vista and Windows 7 w/ IE10, all up to date (SPs and Updates) & equipped w/ MSE. I gave each 2Gb RAM; they seem to perform very nicely.

Took a bit of effort but, all's well that ends well. Helpful, too, that, in Windows 8, one can 'mount' & easily eject the VHDs... makes it a cinch to put things on them.

I find Hyper-V very clear to use & basically quite alright.

It would be good of MS to share how to create VM's using Hyper-V. It's not the "user friendly" VM software that MS promised, Windows Virtual PC that shipped with Windows 7 was far easier to use.

My notebook is fully equipped to run Hyper-V. What's up with the misleading advertising in regards to it?

Personally, I didn't/don't find Hyper-V hard to use, figure out or understand. Misleading advertising? Although I will admit it helped having a colleague in the UK tell me how to get the SPs in first. And I will admit I, already, knew basically how to create VMs in virtual software.
