    What is the difference between the version of hyper-v available in
    1:- Windows 8 and windows server 2012.

    Hi there
    Probably because nobody knows the answer yet.

    Server 2012 R2 is only just available so I don't= think many would have tried it yet
    cheers

    I don't have Hyper-V to confirm but they say you can create UEFI VM's with the latest version from 8.1/Server 2012 R2 and maybe other new features were also added.

    If you have the latest version, if you run PRO, see for yourself how it goes.

    Hi there
    Not sure why that is such a biggie. You can ALREADY create UEFI VM's even on machines that don't have UEFI if you use VMware -- just change the VM config file.

    I am not interested in uefi.
    I only want to know the difference between the version of hyper v in the client version of os vs the hyper v available in the server version of os.

    I'm particularly I have red that the hyper v in server 2012 r2 preview edition is much improved. And my assumption is that windows 8 is the client equivalent to server 2012 and so i will assume that 8.1 is the client equivalent of server 2012 r2?

    But what is the difference between the hyper v available in corresponding versions of client and Server ones?

    Is the version of hyper v is client is a stripped down version or is it a generation behind the server equivalent?

    Those are a lot of assumptions you are making there. And as someone once said ==> "Assumption is the mother of all ****-ups".

    Perhaps you might have more luck with a question like: "Is there any difference between hyper-v in 8 and 8.1. And if there are differences, does anyone have any clue to what these differences might be?"

    It will also help if you, when reffering to a source, actually would give a link to that source. Instead of claiming that you've read something somewhere.

    As far as your 'demand'. I use hyper-v in Windows 8. I myself have read nor seen anything about an improvement being made in Windows 8.1. But then....I haven't been looking for this information myself.

    There is no difference, from what I understand, between Hyper-V on client and server operating systems. It should be the exact same (8/2012 or 8.1/2012 R2).

    The hypervisor itself is the same, but there are differences in management (you need a Server 2012/2012R2 host to do management of that host with enterprise management tools) and power savings (Win8/8.1 requires a CPU with SLAT for power management functionality for the host whilst Hyper-V is running, 2012/2012R2 does not require SLAT, as it doesn't sleep/hibernate by default).

    so if there is no difference between the hyper v of win 8 and win 8.1 then it surely lags behind the one offered in server .

    server 2012 and windows 8 are like hand and glove .. they go togeher
    and server 2012 r2 and win 8.1 are like hand and glove .

    now there are a lot of new feautres in 2012 R2 ..

    https://www.google.com/search?client...utf-8&oe=utf-8


    this site lists at least a dozen or so features that are either new or improved in the hyperv of 2012r2
    but there is no shuch hypye about the hyper v available in win 8.1 ..

    btw what is the version of hyper v available in server 2012 vs 8 and 2012 R2 vs 8.1 ..

    now by your info that there are nothing improved in win 8.1 ..it seems that the hyper v in client is inferior to the equivalent in server ..
