Hyper V RRS feed

  • Question

  • To start the scenario, I am running Windows 8.1 Pro on my laptop. I have enabled the Hypervisor in the BIOS, or UEFI. I have the Hyper V Manager up and running, as well as a Virtual Machine running Windows 7. I have an External Virtual Switch that will connect to the internet.

    What I am looking to do is to configure an Internal or Private switch to interact with my Host computer. Specifically, I want to be able to, from the virtual Win 7, access the files on my laptop using Windows Explorer, and NOT have access to the internet.

    When I try to access the laptop files from the Virtual Machine, it tells me that I don't have permission and I should contact my administrator.

    What am I not doing, missing, should be doing, overlooking?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
