I have an Intel Modular System with 4 Compute Modules and Windows Server 2008 Enterprise with HyperV, and am trying to install the OS so I can utilize all the resources in the system. I need to be able to host several virtual machines on this system.

I have the shared LUN license to be able to share one LUN among all the compute modules, but I cannot determine how to install the OS so it can see all the CPU's and RAM available with the 4 compute modules.

Question 1: How can I install the OS so a single OS instance sees all available resources in the IMS system? Is this even possible?

Question 2: Do I need to install the OS on all compute modules and use high availability clustering to utiliize the resources?

Any insight is appreciated as soon as possible. Thank you in advance.
