Installing Win Serv 2016 essentials on Hyper-V


  • Hi,

    I have Hyper-V running on Windows 10 and I am trying to install WinServ 2016 essentials in a VM.

    I make it through the complete install and then log into either the default or administrator account.

    A box comes up that says "Updating and preparing your server".

    It goes to 17% and never goes any farther.

    Any tips for troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated.
