connecting HyperV to the external world


  • Cannot seem to connect to my  host machine hard drives and the i find the help totally confusing as at some point in the discussion, the items discussed do not exist in my menu's or they are poorly described.

    (ie take my usb off line? where is that on windows 10? i gave up on that one after 3 or 4 hours)

    Hyper v seems cool , but, unless i can get data on it (without burning dvd disk) it is not much use.

    Tried Ethernet options, but, thus far lead to nowhere and cannot seem get that going.

    My only option is to go back to third party virtual computers which make all of these tasks fairly easy  ... talking to the outside world. (drive, internet ..)

    wanted to give HyperV  a chance, but, getting very frustrated.

    IS there a HyperV dummy page?

  •   Hyper-V was designed for Windows Server. It is never going to be as "user-friendly" as a virtualization program designed for a client OS. All those things can be done, but not by clicking a box in the GUI.
