    favouritekid,

    Can you clarify what you mean by "Hyper-V Core"? Are you referring to the free "Hyper-V Server" version of Windows Server 2008 R2 that allowed you to run Hyper-V? Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Microsoft® Hyper-V

    If you are referring to the above command prompt-only flavor of the operating system, your best bet would be to install Windows 8 Server (Server Core). Then you can add the Hyper-V server role by using the dism.exe command.

    Perhaps you should consider opening a new thread that better articulates what you are looking for.

    Thanks,
    Frank

    After running Hyper-V Manager, I get the following which is different from that shown in the tutorial. What am I doing wrong? Or is there anything I can do from here to bring me back on track?

    Hello Churin,

    Where you able to check the Hyper-V Platform option in Windows Features as well?

    If not, then your CPU may not support it.

    Hi, Brink,

    In order to run Hyper-V in Windows 8 client, your CPU must support SLAT (Second Level Address Translation). It's also know an Intel EPT (Extended Paging tables).

    Sadly, if you aren't running a core i3/i5/i7 series, you aren't going to have SLAT support. I just had to replace a Core 2 Duo at work in my main desktop as it didn't have SLAT support. My laptop is running a Core 2 Duo P8600...and it does NOT have SLAT support either.

    Here is a useful link with an easy method to double check for your SLAT support

    I checked if my CPU supports SLAT by following the referenced article. It appears to support SLAT. Please see the following:

    Churin,

    It looks like the "Console tree" has been set to hide in the Hyper-V Manager. In the Hyper-V Manager, click on View (Menu bar) and Customize. Next, check the Console tree option and click OK to see if that restores it.
