I have installed Hyper-V Server on a 64-bit server.
Everythign went fine. On loading a couple of DOS boxes come up. (CMD box that triggers the Hyper-V Configuration).
Have connected to the net and updated to latest builds.

But there is no U/I or Windows environment and don't understand how I install the Operating Systems!
Do I have to install Management Tool for example?

"As you can see the installation process is actually quite fast and simple.  Once this is all done you need to setup the Hyper-V management UI on a remote computer in order to administrate the system."

Ben's blog has lots of useful information about Hyper-V and he updates pretty often ;)

I realised the issue was that I have to install the Management Module on a different machine. Something that is explained in the blog but is copiously hidden in the reams of words on the Microsoft Web Site.

The only problem now is getting a spare machine that runs Vista or 2008 Server....
