    what it means exatly and how can know that?"you can share files exactly as if the virtual machine were a normal physical computer in your network"
    and i use mstsc to connect to windows xp that i create in hyper v and write the name WinXP in computer name dialog and press connect but it sais that there is no windows xp.
    and the full screnn is still like before.do you want to capture a picture from that?

    It means that you can share files between your host computer and virtual machine normally, as done in a network with real physical computers. A virtual machine acts and behaves in your network as if it was a real computer.

    I think it is better you take screenshots and post them here.

    thank you I believe I followed the instruction and loaded window's 7. But cannot connect to the internet. I have seen people with the same problem

    But no solution. The other thing is hat I could make the screen bigger and the mouse would get stuck in the Hyper-v window.
    I will appreciate any suggestion. I was thinking of starting over.

    Thank you

    Hi kari & All
    Thank you for this tutorial
    I created and run Hyper-v then installed windows 32 bit in virtual machine connection.
    Now How can I Access to hard drive in my computer(windows 32 bit in virtual machine connection)?
    In other words, How can I Access to my drives(D,E) in virtual machine connection(Windows 7 32 Bit)?
    The second question:
    I have a free space hard in real windows(Windows 8.1)

    Click image for larger version

    But the free space on the hard drive is not recognized in virtual machine.

    Click image for larger version

    Is it possible that there is free space on the hard drive will be enabled in the virtual machine?
    thank you so much kari.

    Virtual machines are just that - they only see the "devices" attached to them, and nothing on the host. If you want to use that space on the host for use in the guest, make a virtual hard disk that uses it, and attach it to the guest. If you use a server version of Windows with Hyper-V you could add it as pass-through storage, but not on the client.

    Nice post...too bad it doesn't work. Everything was fine until I configured it all as instructed and then tried to access the internet from the host computer. I can see the bridge that got created, and says enabled, WiFi is connected per the metro interface as well as the Network icon, but if I look at the properties for the WiFi adapter status when you open the properties, under Connection for IPv4 Connectivity where it should say "Internet" when connected, it says No network access. I can see the SSID of the WiFi, signal quality, etc...everything says it should be connected except for where it says IPv4 connectivity.
