Hyper-V final version is here… Let’s install it…

Hyper-V final is ready to be installed so I created a Step-By-Step tutorial how to install Hyper-V final version on Windows server 2008 64 bit server (Hyper-V role works only on 64 bit!!!)

This Step-By-Step have some specific information regarding installing Hyper-V on HP DL380 server which I have at home – so I have explained how to enable virtualization in BIOS (it may vary from bios to bios) and some specific problem HP servers with HP Network configuration utility have when you try to install Hyper-V (server hangs on “Configuring Updates Stage 3 of 3” on 54% or 75%).
