    Hyper-V doesn't have that greater guest os support. The modern OS are ok support wise but lots of people have legacy servers which they support. I have lots of clients who still run NT4 servers etc as the cost of upgrading some of these apps is far to much or the company has gone bust etc
    @SimpleSi - you won't get support in Hyper-V for your Win 98 machines, ESXI will happily take it

    I can live with it here as I'm just wanting autostart of the old w2k3 server VM after power failure as it still does the DNS/DHCP for the network and I can't be bothered re-entering all the WiFI AP and printer reservations into the host W2k8 one.

    I would usually only use Xen/KVM/oVirt or ESXI free for virtual servers.

    Usually doesn't seem the right word here

    You know there is free tools from Microsoft to help with such things they do migration toolkits for most major features, DHCP is export and import so quite simple

    Of courseI I didn't know of migration tools.

    But now that I have that knowledge the world will be my oyster again
