This is the first opportunity I’ve had to spend any hands-on time with Hyper-V. After less than a week, I’m hooked. And Jason’s suggestion, although ambitious, isn’t science fiction. Windows 7 is being built on the same code base as Windows Server 2008. So in theory at least, this software could be ported to the desktop OS. In this walkthrough and the accompanying image gallery, I’ll show you how Hyper-V works, what it can and can’t do, and where it falls short on the client side.

First things first: Hyper-V is not yet a shipping product. The version I looked at is Release Candidate 0, and the final version is due sometime within 180 days after the RTM of Windows Server 2008, which could be as late as August 2008.

For my test bed, I’m using a budget Dell PC with a 2.4 GHz quad-core Intel Q6600 CPU (with Intel Virtualization Technology support), 6GB of RAM, and a pair of 500GB SATA drives. The host software is Windows Server 2008 Standard, x64 Edition. To run the release candidate, I downloaded and installed the 26.6MB standalone update package, KB949219. (A separate x86 update is available as well.) If I had had any VMs created in previous Hyper-V betas, I would have had to apply the appropriate update to them as well, but I skipped this step by creating completely new VMs.
