  • Do you know if these or any Serve 2008 flavors are available for VPC?  I'm specifically looking for a Domain Controller for TFS demos.

  • Ryan -

    The Virtual Server images should be able to run under Virtual PC with no issues.

  • Hello,

    Is there any major difference between Hyper-V and VS2005 virtual machines?

    Best,

  • Hyper-V supports x64 based operating systems, and can have multiple processors.  Hyper-V and Virtual Server have different video cards and SCSI controllers.  Also – Hyper-V uses a different HAL for Windows, so Hyper-V virtual machines cannot boot on Virtual Server (Virtual Server virtual machines can boot on Hyper-V).

    Cheers,
