  • Hi,

    Rick Dee is right, the Hyper -V is a feature of Windows server 2008, it does not apply to Windows 7.

  • Hyper-V MUST be installed on Windows Server 2008 R2.  Hyper-V will NOT run on Windows 7!

    There is nothing posted on the Microsoft website that implies Hyper-V can be installed on Windows 7!

    Read the info @ http://www.microsoft.com/hyper-v-server/en/us/default.aspx

    It does not mention anything about installing Hyper-V on windows 7!

  • Hi,

    I think no body really noticed the question, the guy has already installed Hyper-V on his windows 7 and yes the same error I am having, the patch called Windows server tools http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc794756(v=ws.10).aspx, and through some RND I understand that this tool installed Managment console for Hyper-V for remote administration of Hyper-V server on some other windows R2 that's why in configuration every where i found that it says right click server node and add remote server when you i use local server i had the same error and finally i realize that i have to installed Win 2008 R2  Below is the image for your reference where i have installed hyper v administration tool pack on win 7

  • You have installed Hyper-V tools not Hyper-V on windows 7.. You can only install Hyper-V tools in windows 7. However in Windows 8 you can install Hyper-V for virtualization  .....

  • On this same topic.  Is there a MS tool much like VPC or XP-Mode which would allow me to create a Windows 7 64 machine on a Windows 7 machine?  Something similar to VM Workstation?

    Thanks,

    Have you read the information posted on the respective websites for Virtualbox and VMware Player?

  • Hello,

    There is a solution, you 'll still be able to run a virtual machine on Windows 7. You've got to first create a Virtual Hard disk (vhd) then install Windows Server 2008R2 on it by WIM2VHD. Create a boot entry by bcdedit. Then you have your new environment where you can install hyper-V!

    Bye, Sébastien

    Please explain how you can run Hyper-V in Windows 7 if you install Server 2008 R2 in a VHD.  The Server 2008 R@ VHD is a separate environment on the HDD.  When you boot the Server 2008 R2 VHD you are not running Windows 7.

    Read the information found @ http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/129475-boot-windows-7-from-vhd-an-amazing-concept/ about booting from VHD.  Your method of creating the Server 2008 R2 VHD will not work.  Server 2008 R@ must be installed to its own separate VHD the same as with the Windows 7 VHD.
