Setting up my lab.....

Done a fair bit of study but now want to get hands on and have some time.

So I have one i5 machine with plenty of storage, it's Win 7 so if I want to use Hyper V do I need to upgrade to Win 8 ?

I think the answer is yes, I know I could use Vmware but I want to be as familiar with Hyper V console as possible for the exams.

Thanks.

    A good option for setting up the lab is detailed here:

    Basically, it just walks you through dual booting your PC, but it is very helpful feature that allows you to run the VMs you set up through Hyper V.

    I'll take a look though I think I'll just be done with it and upgrade my win 7 PC rather than use up more disk space with a dual boot setup.

    If you upgrade to 8 you will just need to enable Hyper-V. It is installed but not enabled by default.

    Yeah, though I'm happy with Win 7 it looks like MS have got me again with another upgrade !
