Running Windows 8 Preview as Hyper-V Windows 2008R2 Virtual Machine

If you are planning to run Windows 8 as a Virtual Machine under your current Hyper-V Windows 2008R2 server, here is an update   that enables the Windows Developer Preview or Windows Server Developer Preview to be hosted in a Hyper-V virtual machine on Windows Server 2008 R2:

Hotfix: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;2526776

Without this hotfix you may experience one or more of the following issues:

  • The Windows Developer Preview or Windows Server Developer Preview virtual machine stops responding.
  • The Windows Server 2008 R2 host computer displays a stop error message and restarts automatically. This behavior brings down all other running virtual machines together with the host computer
