    Hyper V2

    Been setting up clustered Hyper V2 VMs today.

    Been first time in a while when using Windows Server that I have though that is cool.

    As a Linux admin at heart that is hard for me to say

    ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF... *ahem* sorry, got carried away.

    Having used previous incarnations of Hyper-V and Virtual Server, I'd agree the new R2 version does feel significantly more polished and mature as a platform.

    It's just a shame, when you apparantly have a VT capable process that, you sometimes have to hack Win2k8R2 to allow you to install Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 because some hardware manufacturers (mentioning no names (*caugh* HP)) don't bother giving you a BIOS update so you can enable the feature

    I had to go through a complicated and largely undocumented BIOS update on an Acer server for the same reason recently. I was not amused.

    Hello,

    I had some issues getting Hyper-V working on a DL360 G5 recently. To get it to work, I had to do the following:

    Install hotfix kb974598
    then enable a)Intel® Virtualization Technology and b)No-Memory Execute Protection in the BIOS

    If I enabled the above without the hotfix the W2K8 R2 server would BSOD on boot. I hope this might be helpful for someone.

    I'm after trying Hyper-V Server R2 (the free one) and as I don't have any spare PC's at home which are 64bit and with VT or whatever hardware it requires I was wondering if I could create a VM in Virtual PC (or VMware player or some kind of destop virtualisation product) and install and play on that?

    I don't believe there are are any virtualisation systems that can emulate the presence of VT-x in the BIOS, so the answer is no.
