So now with Microsoft Windows Server 2012 available, I figured it would be nice to do a step by step setup and install of getting Hyper-V up and running. The focus here is really to show how you would get Hyper-V setup using the manual installation method. I’ll also show how you can use powershell to configure the server core system. In the end I’ll have a system that ready to configure and run virtual machines. This is only the getting started basics so I will not be showing storage setups, clustering, etc. To keep the post short I will be splitting the process up into what I think will end up being four parts.
Part one, we have to install the operating system. Since this is the easiest part of the process, I’m going to keep it simple by only showing a video and some screenshots.[vsw id=”T62DL82UAdY” source=”youtube” width=”500″ height=”344″ autoplay=”no”]
