Install VM on Hyper-V

Is it possible to install a VM from a ISO file on the Hyper-V host, or I need to burn the ISO on DVD and provide it during the installation ?

When you configure the VM you can tell it to use the ISO for installation.

Alternatively if you have already created the VM console select the Media menu then DVD drive and insert disk this will allow you to specify the ISO file

You have the option of installing an operating system later on, but you can also choose to install from a CD (or an .ISO file), a boot floppy, or from an installation server, as shown in Figure C

I have already mapped a ISO file on the host disk. When I start the VM, it pop up with the error. Any advise ?

Thanks

Check that your hypervisor service is running.

This is more than likely because the HT setting is not on in your BIOS.

sorry that should have said VT

You will find it in your BIOS under Advanced and then processor options.

I have gone to BIOS setting, and set the 'IDE' the first device to start during starting up. However, it does help any..

Thanks

No you need to go to the Advanced Options, it has nothing to do with boot devices.

What sort of BIOS do you have can you post the BIOS type and revision?
Also what is the processor you are using?
