Hyper-V server sys requirement

Answers

  • Hi Jane,

     

    Hyper-V Server 2008 is a bare metal hypervisor that is just a thin peice of software that enables you to create Virtual Machines.  This available as a free download (more info here).  You also have the option of installing Hyper-V as a role in an existing Windows Server 2008 installation.  Do not worry what about the entry you found, they probably meant it as it is built on Server 2008 technology.  Either that or they had a line to fill and that made the most sense.
