  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a leptop HP 450 , with Windows 8.1 pro . I am trying to create a virtual machine but I can not do it.

    In Hyper-v manager I don't have the "new" option. I have Only "connect to a server" .

    My leptop  is for home use.

    Thanks,

  • Hi,

    The "New" option only appears when a Hyper-V host is connected to and selected.

    If you select "Hyper-V Manager" in the tree, then there is no new, just Connect to Server.
    If you Select "Hyper-V" in the tree, then there is just general health.

  • You should connect to local server for see Virtual machine and Management tools on local system.

    Do this Steps:

    1-Right clik on hyper-v Manager and select "Connect To Server...."

    2-On page Select Computer click on "Local Computer" and then click OK.

    3-You see Virtual machine (if you haven't virtual machine it was empty) and management tools.

    4-Have fun!

  • This requires the user to be an Admin. I would suggest running Hyper-V as admin and then the local machine shows up right away.
