Run Windows 10 in Hyper-V

Last week I wrote a brief post about the Windows 10 Technical Preview so this weekend I am sharing a little more about Windows 10 running in Hyper-V.

When Windows 10 was released I didn’t want to overwrite my current Window 8.1 installation so I decided that it would be best to run the Windows 10 Technical Preview inside of Hyper-V. Hyper-V is a free virtualization hypervisor built into the Windows 8.x Pro version allowing the end-user to run multiple version of Windows, Linux/UNIX boxes, etc.

Installing Windows 10 in Hyper-V is just easy! Below are some screen shots of the Windows 10 installation in Hyper-V:

All you need to do is download the ISO (image) from Microsoft Insider Program and then create a new virtual machine from the Hyper-V management console. Once the new virtual machine has been created you can launch the virtual machine and install Windows 10 technical preview.

If you haven’t worked with Windows and Hyper-V before below is guide which you can use to get you going:

If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment.
