CANITPRO Camps are always a great way for IT professionals to learn about the new Microsoft ecosystem offerings such as Windows Server 2012 R2, System Center 2012 R2 and others. These camps provide IT professionals both information regarding said ecosystem as well as hands on labs to complete. These labs enable IT administrators and managers alike to think of ways these labs could better support their needs within their own organization. At the CANITPRO camps which took place in Calgary last week, attendees asked how they could run said labs provided at the camp and via the Step-By-Step posts made available online on the CANITPRO.NET blog. While there are many ways this can be accomplished, the one that resonated loudest was the ability to natively run Hyper-V sessions within Windows 8.1 itself. Virtual Machines are great for running different operating systems or software configurations on a single machine and many other additional tasks. The launch of the Windows 8 offering was the first Windows client operating system to include hardware virtualization support without the need for separate installs or downloads. The Hyper-V client found in Windows 8 is the same technology used in Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V allowing IT professionals to move VMs from server to client without the requirement to re-learn the use of Hyper-V features and tools. In Windows 8.1 further enhancements to the Client Hyper-V were introduced. The most notable update called Enhanced Session Mode enables high fidelity graphics for connections to VM's using the RDP protocol. In addition USB redirection is also enabled from the host to VM's. Step 1: Prerequisites
The following prerequisites are required to successfully run Client Hyper-V on Windows 8.1:
Step 2: Setting Up Hyper-V

Thank you sir.
Extra bonus. ALL of the Hyper-V Cmdlets that are available in Server 2012R2 are ALSO available in Windows 8.1. I use them on a regular basis. You can do cool stuff like this lab with PowerShell and Hyper-V too! http://bit.ly/PoshHyperVLabThe Best part is you can script what it takes to get the job done on your laptop and the script is 100% portable to the Server 2012 R2 environment.SeanWindows PowerShell MVP\Honorary Scripting Guy

Hey Jessy,did you verify that you are running Windows 8 Pro or Windows 8 Enterprise 64 bit? Hyper-v is not available on Windows 8. only on Pro or Enterprise.ThanksPierre
