Hi All

I was wondering if it is possible to install HyperV as a standalone tool on a Windows Server 2003 host?
If so, What are the HW/SW requirements needed for it to work (RAM, Disk Space, CPU...)??
Can it be installed on Windows Server 2003 standard addition 32bit?

Thanks

No, hyper-V is a bare metal hypervisor, not the same type as Virtual Server, Virtual PC, or VMWare Server (but it is the same type as VMWare's ESXi Server).

Hyper-V requires 64 bit hardware AND the hardware must support virtualization.

Hyper-V is not suported as a host on Server 2003. It is only supported on Server 2008 Standard, Enterprise, or Datacenter editions. Server 2003 is only a supported guest OS.
