Hyper-V Program Manager
Well, I just realized that I had dived into talking about how to do things with Hyper-V without first taking the time to orient you on some of the terminology used. So I would now take the time to correct that. Note that many of these terms are not used in the user interface / documentation for Hyper-V. The reason for this is that from an operational "getting things done" point of view you do not need to know about most of this. However, once you start discussing architecture it becomes necessary to know about this stuff:
That seems like a good set to start with. If there are some that I have forgotten - I will do another terminology post at some time in the future.
Thanks for the post. I had been searching for this information and glad you posted this. I have couple of questions
1. What is the name of the device driver image associated with hypervisor?
2. How the boot process changes after we enable Hyper-V role? I tried boot logging option but could not find any useful information from the log
This could be a completly new post in itself. :)
You sir are a gentlemen and a scholar for simply compiling this list and making it public. Terminology is absolutly the single greatest barrier to study.
I have taught many many students high tech material. It always comes dowon to the same thing - if they understand the words they have a good chance of understanding the subject.
This has been validated by Hubbard and a variety of other educators. Thank you for your efforts!

Hi sir just wanted to know why mouse and video adapter are known as core synthetic devices............ Please tell me the exact reason behind it......
Are you sure about this?
"...we would talk about a "host operating system" and a "guest operating system" where the host ran on the physical hardware and the guest ran on the host. With Hyper-V all operating systems on the physical computer are running on top of the hypervisor..."
both run on top of the hypervisor? I have always added hyper-v after installing the first OS.
