    Brink,

    I have found that the console tree must have been turned off when I took that snapshot of Hyper-V Manager. This was probably because I clicked the icon for "Show/Hide console tree". I have now turned it on, so that "Hyper-V Manager" is shown on the left most column. This is still different from what the tutorial shows and I could not figure out how to proceed from here.

    Good. One down, and one to go. Yep, under "Hyper-V Manager" should be your computer name to select.

    Double check your BIOS settings to make sure that anything virtual is enabled.

    Next, double check in Windows Features to make sure that you have all 5 items below checked.

    I thought I did the step for turning on VM features, but for some reason Hyper-V Platform is not check-marked.
    Now I am on track to proceed. When everything is done I will certainly post back.

    I followed the tutorial's steps to the end. Now, I can run the guest OS of XP and switch back and forth between the guest and the host.

    My remaining problems are that 1) no networking(NIC not recognized), 2) no DVD drive and 3) video controller driver not installed.
    Is there another tutorial which covers the above?

    First of all, try installing the integration components (inserts as a virtual cd on the XP guest) then you get a better video controller (not much but better) and you can resize the screen to any resolution.

    The network adapter should have drivers on the guest or it will be not installed (just like in the tutorial). Try to choose another adapter on the Hyper-V settings window.

    For the sound: I'm afraid you need some more advanced stuff to do in order to work (redirection) and I'm also don't know how to apply that (that's why I use VirtualBox or VMware Player for VM's with sound).

    Cheers

    What is the integration components?
    How to insert something as a vertual cd on the guest os?

    The network adapter should have drivers on the guestor it will be not installed (just like in the tutorial)
    Does the above mean the problem is less likely to happen if I pick newer OS as the guest?

    . Try to choose another adapter on the Hyper-V settings window.
    Does the above suggest that a new adapter be installed whose drivers come with the quest OS?


    I thought if a guest os is once installed, installing devices and their drivers can be done as the same ways for normal OS installation.

    Integration Services (not components, sorry). See this link: Windows 8 Hyper-V Improved Integration Services Setup | Working Hard In IT

    The default adapter seem to work on a Win8 guest so that means is supported but not by all guests.
    Yes, you should try another adapter, and with luck, it may work, otherwise try to find the drivers yourself.
    Anyway the integration services may install all missing drivers.

    Good luck.

    Regarding the "Integration Services", the linked article refers to "Virtual Machine console" and "navigate to Action and select Insert Integration Services Setup Disk". How can I get to "Virtual Machine console"?

    That's the graphic interface of your virtual machine. Do you even see your VM XP desktop? There has to be a menu there.

    This is it:
    To use the virtual machine interactively all I need to do is connect to it. I can click the Connect link in the Actions menu or double-click the virtual machine name. Hyper-V will then create a session to the virtual machine console
    See this: Import Virtual Machine in Windows 8 Client Hyper-V

    Then you should see the menu:
    Name:  vm-options.png

    This should fix the issue.
