    Can Hyper-V work with one NIC

    As per the title can it work on a server with one physical nic when trying to set up an external virtual network?

    and to answer my own question, you can, but make sure you let it change your nic settings itself and not set them before hand or it gets unhappy

    Plain and simple answer is yes - it will work when you create the new virtual network tick the box that says 'share with computer management' (can't remember the precice text).
    There are reasons not to namely dedicating a NIC will ensure that your VMs get the full potential of any bandwith provided.

    on your vm there are 2 types of network card you can use a legacy network adapter or a network adapter. Legacy allows wds/ris boot but isnt a good candidate to share with the host os's network card
