Server/Operating system virtualization help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been looking into server virtualization and hyper v and am starting to struggle with it a bit.

    Is there a way for my server pc to create virtual pcs that are then deployed onto the existing pcs in the office. 

    I was thinking that I could install hyper-v manager to the server and somehow allow that to create a virtual pc whenever someone turned on their pc and have it deployed to it so there's no physical operating system on the pc. Is this possible?

  • You're better off in a more appropriate forum than this one. 

    This one is specific for Virtual Server 2005, which has been replaced by Hyper-V.  

    What you're describing has nothing to do with Virtual Server 2005.  

    You could try the Hyper-V forum (Hyper-V:, but deploying OSes to physical systems isn't really what Hyper-V is designed for .  When you deploy an OS to hardware, you're not dealing with VMs any longer.

    There are a lot of licensing issues you'd need to work though for this also, since you're dealing in client OSes.  

    Look more at thin clients, VDI, or remote desktops.
