Mission turn an 8Gig RAM, quadcore desktop with Vista into a Hyper-V Host
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My 8 year old laptop finally died,
so I bought a new 8Gig RAM, quadcore deskdop & 23 inch monitor for under $750 including tax
and will replace/partition Vista Home with Windows Server 2008 +  Hyper V

Goal:
1) VM#1 - Sharepoint / VS 2008 / SQL 2008 Development Server
2) VM#2 - Home PC with MS Office
3) On a "pristene" Host

VM Instances  are

- easier to backup, screw up and recover that host OS Instances
- and they can run concurrently (I need to verify in Hyper-V)

It will take a while.

Installing Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Robert J. Shimonski wrote a very useful article at this link.

http://www.virtualizationadmin.com/articles-tutorials/microsoft-hyper-v-articles/installation-and-deployment/installing-windows-server-2008-

hyper-v.html

In order to utilize virtualization you must
1) have a clean install of Windows Server 2008 Enterprise (not Standard)
2) then "Add a Hyper-v role " which will install Hyper-V onto the host machine


 Before I read this article, I got confused and downloaded "Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 - English"
 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=6067CB24-06CC-483A-AF92-B919F699C3A0&displaylang=en.

 But in a nutshell, just install Windows Server 2008 Enterprise/Standatrd,
 and then add the Hyper-V roles, which will run an installer

Click Start and click to open Server Manager.
Locate the Roles Summary area of the main Server Manager window.
Click Add Roles.
On the Specific Server Roles page click, Add Hyper-V.
Follow the prompts to finish installing the Role and click OK when finished.
then you will be prompted to reboot.

After reboot. Installation continues, then you get a message:
...."additionsal steps are required to run VMs
...."run the Virtual Machine Wizard by opening the Hyper-V role homepage
....in Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Server manager."

So now you have your VM manager!

1) shut down Guest OS
2) close guest vm
3) On Hyper-V, under settings for Guest OS,
add a Legacy Network Adapter and set that to my point to your Virtual Network.
Leave MAC address at Dynamic
and uncheck the "Enable virtual Lan identification" check box.
4) power up Guest OS
5) test internet

Hi
Thanks for the article. I was thinking of installing Windows 2008 R2 and use Hyper-V instead of VMware to create my SharePoint Test environment and this article just came in handy.

Most small business owners and merchants have little information about the process and as a result wind up paying inflated PCI compliance fees. Merchant processors have been charging up to 300.00.

My Laptop is just a year and a half old and already the battery life has started going down. From a peak stand by time of 90 minutes it barely works for around 60 mins. Any advice, should I change to a new battery.
