Configuring the BIOS for Hyper-V

How many times have you said “I’d love to learn how to use Hyper-V, but where do I start?”  Start here!  I’ve started a series on Hyper-V that begins with how to configure your server, and then moves step by step all the way through how you can setup a High Availability Hyper-V cluster.  Don’t worry, we’re going to talk about each phase, and I’ll provide additional reference material you can review if you have additional questions.  Step one is setting up your servers to support Hyper-V, we have to make sure that your BIOS is properly configured for Hyper-V.  Check out this video, we’ll talk about the important details as well as what needs to be modified in BIOS.

This session is one part of a whole series of screen casts around Hyper-V, you can go this link to access the whole series.

So you want to get started with Hyper-V? Start here! – In Summary

Until next time,


  • Seems you have the wrong video linked into this article. This video comes up for a later step where it's relevant.

  • Where is the video about setting up the BIOS?

  • Also, I thought this was supposed to be about the Hyper-V roll in windows server, not the stand alone Hyper-V product.
