Hello...I am chasing some advice on how to proceed.
I wish to create a virtual machine, I have a Windows 7 machine, it is:
2.10GHz, 4.0GB RAM, & has a 64-bit operating system. I have 140+GB of free space on my hard drive.
What I want to know is the step-by-step process of installing the Hyper-V software. I am unable to partition my (C) drive, I have attempted to install the Hyper-V software but have cancelled it as I have received a message that it may over-write the Windows 7 O/S. My aim is not to over-write.
Once installed my aim is to install the Windows Server 2008 R2 software and then create several virtual machines, these would use Windows 8 which I would upload into the virtual machines. I am just not sure of taking those first steps.
Any advice or directions would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks for your time.
