Dynamic Memory for Vista Business Edition ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't get a Vista Business Edition VM with SP2 to show Dynamic Memory after setting it up and updating the Integration Services. Isn't the "Windows Vista Business" supposed to be same as the Enterpise version?   Other OSs are showing DM on this particular Hyper-V Server

  • You would need Vista Eneterprise/Ultimate to support Dynamic Memory.

    The business edition can be compared to Windows 7 Professional, which is not supported as a guest OS using dynamic memory.

  • OK, thanks.  I'm sure there are good reasons, but wish Microsoft wouldn't have been so "stingy" with which OS's would support DM. I have dozens of XP machines that I would "luv" to make DM.

  • I agree, Win 7 Pro has been a perfectly valid choice to recommend as a business desktop in a VDI situation, now it looks like a wrong choice... how could we have seen that coming! Now we (I) look like fools for making the 'wrong' recommendation. Obviously any of the Home editions shouldn't be supported but to my mind it looks to be a cynical move by Microsoft not to include Vista Business or Windows 7 Professional in the Dynamic Memory support list. :(
