    Windows 7 & 8


    Very Nice Tutorial Dwarf. Now My Windows 8 can running Windows 7 in VM.

    It's because my software can only running on Win7. Thank you very much

    The only Problem is about Hypervisor is not running. But with little setting on my BIOS. The problem is solved.

    I'm just turn on the Virtual Machine setting on my BIOS.

    Hyper-V in Windows 8.1. Pro Preview


    Good news for Hyper-V enthusiasts, Hyper-V Version 6.3.9431.0 included in Windows 8.1 Pro Preview
    allows installing Windows 8 (x64 only) and Windows Server 2012 virtual machines using UEFI, which in its turn allows for instance Secure Boot or PXE boot.

    Simply select 2nd Generation for your W8 or W2012 virtual machine, other than that it's straight forward installation as described in this tutorial.

    Hyper-V Research


    Hello Everyone,
    I have followed this thread from the beginning, trying to avoid as many problems as possible. I also have a grayed Hyper-V check-box, the exception being, I am running a 64 bit system with AMD dual-core processors. Please advise.

    Hi VegasFlash, welcome to the Eight Forums.

    First and most important, the PC must meet the minimum requirements to run Hyper-V:
    - A 64 bit system on host
    - CPU support for SLAT
    - 4 GB RAM minimum on host

    Although I do not know your CPU, I checked the net and as far as I know it should support SLAT. Also as you have 6 GB RAM and a 64 bit system, what remains is to check that virtualization is enabled in machine BIOS.

    Anyway, you should see the reason why it is grayed out in a balloon tip by hovering the mouse pointer over the Hyper-V selection. If enabled the balloon tip tells general information about Hyper-V, when disabled the tip should tell the reason why it cannot be enabled:

    Check what the balloon tip says for you, post the reason here.
