    I've just installed the WindowsDeveloperPreview-32bit-English as a VM using exactly the same settings as in the Tutorial, and I got network connectivity straight away. Here's the proof:

    The only thing that I can think of is that the emulated hardware (network adapter) isn't supported in Vista but is in WDP.

    Dwarf Google "really is your friend" if it worked straight away. Glad you got it working and looking forward to your updated Tut.

    I don't think that there is any need to change/update the Tutorial. The basic functionality is there, and we have served to show that not all guest OSes are able to have network connectivity.

    Hopefully Microsoft will improve Hyper V to support all OS's and sound, USB support or integrate with Virtual PC which already includes sound support and USB support.

    I hope so as well. It would be nice to be able to install an OS under Hyper-V and have full functionality with network connectivity, audio, graphics, etc.

    Hello Favouritekid, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The tutorial on the first page will pretty much show you how to. If you have any specific questions on it, then please feel free to ask.

    Bridged to Wireless... Little Flakey?


    Finally have this working with an "External" Virtual Switch set to my wireless NIC (and the checkbox checked to "Allow management operating system to share this network adapter"). Took a few tries (setting and unsetting the configuration). Anyone else tried bridging to wireless?

    Have you tried enabling the options that you do have?

    Does your processor support this? Run GRC*|*SecurAble: Determine Processor Security Features*|** to find out.
